Abstract

In order to apply teat cups automatically, or facilitate their application by hand, each teat cup is associated with a support surface 28 projecting to one side of the top of the cup. The cup with the support surface trailing, is moved laterally against a teat until this lays on the support surface, after which movement is reversed while suction is applied to the cup, so that the teat falls and is sucked into the cup. A machine for carrying out the method can be controlled in response to signals from an electronic camera, touch or proximity sensors on the teat cup, and a vacuum sensor signalling entry of a teat into the cup. The machine has means for grasping an individual teat cup and moving it into engagement with a teat. The support surface 28 is carried by a sleeve 26 spring-urged into the full line position. When a teat is properly inserted into the teat cup the increase in vacuum in the interior of the liner 14 is applied to a space 40 between the sleeve and the teat cup shell 11 and shifts the sleeve and support surface 28 downwardly to the phantom line position. <IMAGE>
