Description

  The present invention relates to a twisted wire manufacturing apparatus for twisting a wire pair.
  In general, a twisted wire manufacturing apparatus is known in which both ends of a wire pair are clamped to a pair of clamp portions, and the wire pair is twisted by rotating the clamp portion. In this type of twisted wire manufacturing apparatus, it is necessary for an operator to walk between each clamp portion in order to clamp each end of the wire pair at each clamp portion, and this walking distance is the length of the wire pair to be twisted. Depending on the situation, it may be relatively large. Then, the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus of patent document 1 which reduces an operator's walking distance is known.
The twisted wire manufacturing apparatus includes a turn jig and a pair of clamp portions disposed to face the turn jig. In this twisted wire manufacturing apparatus, both ends of the wire pair are individually clamped to each clamp portion, and the intermediate portion of the wire pair is hung on a turn jig (the wire pair is held in a U-turn by the turn jig). The clamp part is rotated in a state where the wire pair is twisted. Therefore, in this twisted wire manufacturing apparatus, the worker walks a distance between the turn jig and each clamp part, that is, a distance that is about 1/2 of the length of the wire pair to be twisted. The pair can be clamped.
JP 2001-35283 A
  However, although the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus of Patent Document 1 can halve the walking distance of the operator as compared with the case where the wire pair is held between the clamp portions, the wire pair is U at the intermediate portion. Since it is supposed to be held in a turned state, the halved walking distance will increase as the wire pair to be twisted becomes longer, and the walking distance of the worker can be essentially reduced. could not.
  The present invention has been made in view of the above problems, and provides a twisted wire manufacturing apparatus that can reduce the walking distance of an operator as much as possible even when twisting a relatively long wire pair. It is intended to provide.
  In order to solve the above-mentioned problems, the present invention sandwiches a long work table in which a work area of an operator is set at a central portion in order to twist a pair of electric wires and a work area of the work table. And a pair of clamp pieces that clamp the ends of the wire pairs on the work table, and adjacent positions that are close to each other in the work area. It includes a drive mechanism that drives both clamp pieces between the separation positions that are separated from both ends of the work area, and an operation unit arranged in the work area, and both clamps are in the proximity position when clamping a wire pair. And a control unit that controls the drive mechanism so that the clamp pieces are separated to the separation position when twisting the wire pair.
  In the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus, a tension detecting means for outputting a tension detection signal when a preset tension is applied to the wire clamped by each clamp piece is provided. A separation amount teaching unit is provided to teach the distance that the drive mechanism drives both clamp pieces to the separation position based on the detection value of the detection means.

Can be clamped. In addition, after clamping, the wire pair can be twisted by operating the operation unit in the work area. Therefore, in the present invention, even when twisting a relatively long wire pair, the operator can clamp the ends of the wire pair with respect to both clamp pieces in a close position at a fixed position. Since the twisting operation of the wire pair can be performed, the walking distance of the worker can be reduced as much as possible.

Is stored in the storage unit, and the drive amount of each clamp piece can be set based on this separation distance, so when moving to a twisting operation of a wire pair having a different wire length as before, as a preceding process A conventional twisted wire manufacturing apparatus in which an operator moves along a scale provided on a workbench, and both clamp pieces (or a clamp portion and a turn jig in the prior art) are spaced apart according to the wire length. Compared to the above, the operator positioned in the work area clamps the end of the wire pair to each clamp piece in the proximity position, so that Results that can be set a driving amount of the clamper arms to move between ® ting away position, as well as twist operations, can also reduce the walking distance of the operator in the previous step.
  According to the configuration in which both of the clamp pieces are rotated, since the wire pair can be twisted from both sides, the time required for the twist can be reduced to about ½.

  The 1st, 2nd clamp parts 20 and 30 comprised as mentioned above are mutually arrange | positioned on the work table 2 so that each 1st and 2nd clamp piece 24 and 34 may become one set on either side. The pair of electric wires taken out from each of the cage-shaped housing parts 5 are clamped one by one with respect to the two sets of first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34, and the twist motors 22 and 33 are driven to rotate. Thus, the first clamp piece 24 and the second clamp piece 34 rotate in different directions around an axis parallel to the left-right direction to twist two sets of electric wires at the same time.
  In addition, in the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1 of the present embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4, an operator work area SR is set at a central portion in the left-right direction of the work table 2.

In the working area SR (the sliders 11 are in contact with the outer surfaces of the respective restriction blocks 9) and the separating position separated from both ends of the working area SR (see FIG. 9B). It comes to come and go between. Therefore, the worker H positioned in front of the work table 2 corresponding to the work area SR can clamp the wire pair with respect to each of the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 in the close position, By displacing the first and second clamp parts 24 and 34 to the separation position, the wire pair can be twisted between the both clamp parts 24 and 34. In addition, the operation box 8 (see FIG. 1) is disposed within a reach of the worker H located in front of the work table 2 corresponding to the work area SR. A rotation speed input section SW5 for inputting the twist rotation speed of the twisted electric wire, and a setting switch SW6 and a setting start switch SW7, which will be described later, are provided. In the present embodiment, the operation box 8 and the start switches SW2, 4 constitute an example of the operation unit.
  The twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1 configured as described above includes a control unit 50 that includes a well-known CPU, RAM, ROM, and the like, and the control unit 50 controls driving of the above-described components. Yes.
  FIG. 5 is a block diagram schematically showing functions of the control unit 50 provided in the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1 of FIG.
  Referring to FIG. 5, the control unit 50 includes a separation amount teaching unit 51 that teaches a distance for the displacement motor 41 to drive the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 to the separation position, and twisting operation of the wire pair. It mainly functions as the twist operation unit 52 for executing the above. The separation amount teaching unit 51 is based on a tension measurement operation unit 53 that executes a tension measurement operation to be described later, a storage unit 54 that stores the number of rotations of the displacement motor 41 detected by the tension inspection operation, and the stored number of rotations. And a drive amount setting unit 55 for setting the drive amounts of the first and second clamp units 24 and 34. In response to the setting switch SW6 being pressed, the tension measuring operation unit 53 drives the displacement motor 41 to return the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 to the close positions, and then starts the setting. In response to depression of the switch SW7, the displacement motor 41 is driven to separate the clamp pieces 24, 34 from each other. Further, the tension measurement operation unit 53 stops the displacement motor 41 when the detection signal (tension measurement signal) from the rod detection sensor 35c is input via the cable K1 (see FIG. 4), and first and first The drive of the two clamp pieces 24 and 34 is stopped. When the detection signal from the rod detection sensor 35c is input, the storage unit 54 rotates from the rotary encoder (omitted in FIG. 3) 56 provided in the displacement motor 41 to the rotation speed (rotation angle) of the displacement motor 41. Is received and memorized. The drive amount setting unit 55 sets the drive amount of the displacement motor 41 in which the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 move from the proximity position to the separation position based on the rotation speed of the displacement motor 41. Yes.
  The twist operation unit 52 drives the clamping cylinders 25 and 36 of the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 corresponding to the clamp switches SW1 and 3 being pressed to clamp the wire pair. In this state, when one of the start switches SW2 and SW4 is pressed, the displacement motor 41 is driven with the drive amount set by the drive amount setting unit 55 to separate the clamp pieces 24 and 34 from each other. It is designed to be displaced to the position. Further, the twist operation unit 52 drives the twist motors 22 and 33 according to the rotational speed input by the rotational speed input unit SW5 to rotate the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 in the separation position. At the same time, when the rotation operation is completed, the displacement motor 41 is driven to displace both the clamp pieces 24 and 34 to the close position.
  Hereinafter, processing of the control unit 50 that executes the tension measurement operation will be described.
  6 is a flowchart showing the tension measurement process of the control unit 50, FIG. 9 is a schematic diagram showing the operation of both clamp pieces 24, 34, (a) is in the close position, (b) is The state during twisting, (c) shows the state after twisting, respectively.
  Referring to FIG. 6, when the tension measurement process is executed, it is determined whether or not the rotation speed is input by rotation speed input unit SW5 (step S1). Here, it is determined that the rotation speed is not input. Step S1 is repeatedly executed. On the other hand, if it is determined that the rotation speed has been input (YES in step S1), it is determined whether or not the setting switch SW6 has been pressed (step S2). If it is determined that the setting switch SW6 has not been pressed (NO in step S2), step S2 is repeatedly executed. On the other hand, if it is determined that the setting switch SW6 has been pressed (YES in step S2), FIG. As shown in FIG. 9 (a), the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 are returned to their home positions (step S3). Next, both ends of each wire pair W are set, waiting for all the clamp switches SW1, 3 to be pressed (step S4), and when all the clamp switches SW1, 3 are pressed (YES in step S4) ), And waits for the setting start switch SW7 to be pressed (step S5). If it is determined that the setting start switch SW7 has been pressed (YES in step S5), the displacement motor 41 is driven, and the first and second clamp pieces are indicated by the arrow Y5 in FIG. 24 and 34 are separated from each other (step S6). Next, whether or not one of the rod detection sensors 35c is turned off, that is, when the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 are separated from each other, between the clamp pieces 24 and 34. A tension is applied to the electric wire pair W, and any one of the sliding bases 32 in the second clamp portion 30 causes the urging force of the urging cylinder 35 as shown by an arrow Y6 in FIG. It is determined whether or not it has been displaced to the left with respect to the base 31 (step S7). If it is determined that the rod detection sensor 35c is ON (NO in step S7), step S6 is repeatedly executed. On the other hand, if it is determined that the rod detection sensor 35c is OFF (YES in step S7). Then, the displacement motor 41 is stopped, and the positions of the first and second clamp portions 20 and 30 (the number of rotations of the displacement motor 41) are stored (step S8). Next, the twist process T is performed on the wire pair W held between the first and second clamp pieces 20 and 30.
  FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing the twist process T of FIG.
  When the twist process T is executed, the twist motors 22 and 33 are rotated in the twist direction of the electric wire pair W (hereinafter referred to as normal rotation and rotation in the opposite direction as shown by an arrow Y7 in FIG. 9B). Is referred to as reverse rotation) (step T1). Then, the displacement motor 41 is driven according to the contraction operation of the electric wire pair W that is contracted in the left-right direction by being twisted, and as shown by an arrow Y8 in FIG. 20 and 30 are brought close to each other (step T2), and excessive tension is prevented from being applied to the wire pair W. Next, it is determined whether or not the twist motors 22 and 33 have ended the rotational drive at the set rotational speed (step T3). If it is determined that the rotational drive at the rotational speed has not been completed (step T3). In step T3, NO), the processing after step T1 is repeatedly executed. On the other hand, when it is determined that the twist motors 22 and 33 have finished the rotational drive at the above-mentioned rotational speed (YES in step T3), the twist motors 22 and 33 are stopped and the arrow Y9 in FIG. As shown, the rotation is reversed by a predetermined number of rotations (step T4). Here, the reverse rotation of the twist motors 22 and 33 is achieved by reducing the reaction force against the twisting force generated in the wire pair W, so that the twisted wire pair W is removed from the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34. This is to prevent the electric wire pair W from jumping up from both the clamp pieces 24 and 34 when releasing. Therefore, in step T3, it is determined whether or not the twist motors 22 and 33 have rotated by the number of rotations obtained by adding N rotations to the number of rotations input by the rotation number input unit SW5. The twist motors 22 and 33 are reversely rotated by N rotations. When the twist motors 22 and 33 are reversely rotated, the clamp of the electric wire pair W by the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 is released (step T5), and then the displacement motor 41 is driven to drive both the clamp pieces 24 and 34. Is moved to the proximity position (step T6), the process returns to the process of FIG. 6 and the process ends. The wire pair W released in step T5 is held on the protective sheet 7 (see FIG. 2) on the work table 2.
  Then, after the separation position corresponding to the wire pair W to be twisted is set by the tension measurement process, when the twisted wire pair W is continuously twisted, the control is performed based on the set separation position. The unit 50 executes the normal twist process U.
  FIG. 8 is a flowchart showing the normal twist process U of the control unit 50.
  Referring to FIG. 8, when the normal twist process U is executed, both ends of each wire pair W are set, waiting for all clamp switches SW1, 3 to be pressed (step U1), and all clamp switches. When SW1 and SW3 are pressed (YES in step U1), it waits for any of the start switches SW2 and SW4 to be pressed (step U2). Next, when one of the start switches SW2 and SW4 is pressed (YES in step U2), the displacement motor 41 is driven by the number of rotations set by the tension measurement process, and the first and second clamp parts 24 and 34 are driven. Is moved to the separation position (step U3), the twist process T is executed, and then the process ends.
  As described above, according to the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1, the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34 can be displaced to close positions in the work area SR by the control unit 50. In addition, after clamping, the wire pair W can be twisted by operating the operation units (start switches SW2, 4 and operation box 8) in the work area SR. Therefore, in the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1, even when a relatively long wire pair W is twisted, the operator H can wire the wire pair W with respect to both the clamp portions 24 and 34 in the close position at a fixed position. Since the twisting operation of the wire pair W can be performed by clamping the end of the wire, the walking distance of the worker H can be reduced as much as possible.
  Moreover, since the said twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1 is provided with the rod detection sensor 35c and the separation amount teaching part 51, in the process in which the 1st, 2nd clamp pieces 24 and 34 separate, with respect to the clamped electric wire W, The separation position (the number of rotations of the displacement motor 41) of both the clamp pieces 24 and 34 when a preset tension is applied is stored in the storage unit 54, and the clamp pieces 24 and 34 are controlled based on the separation distance. The driving amount can be set. Therefore, when shifting to the twisting operation of the wire pair W having a different wire length, the end of the wire pair W is attached to both the clamp pieces 24 and 34 in the proximity position by the worker H located in the work area SR. By clamping, it is possible to set the drive amount of both clamp pieces 24 and 34 that move between the proximity position and the separation position corresponding to the different wire lengths, so that not only in the twist work but also in the previous process Also, the walking distance of the worker H can be reduced.
  Further, since the twisted wire manufacturing apparatus 1 rotates both the first and second clamp pieces 24 and 34, the wire pair W can be twisted from both sides, and the time required for twisting is reduced to about 1 /. 2 can be reduced.
