Pneumatic Powered Metal Pick and Place Arm

Download Project Document/Synopsis



In this project we demonstrate, how automation helps us in fast conveying of ferromagnetic parts. Conveyors are often used in conjunction with robotic arms running on pneumatic power to achieve pick and place functionality. The system makes use of pneumatic cylinders with tubing valves, electro-magnet. Rods, shafts and supporting frame. The arm is controlled pneumatically for its to and fro motion. Sensors detect metals, which sends signals to microcontroller. With the help of a simple switching circuit, the entire pick and place mechanism of the metal piece will take place in an efficient and quick manner. These arms are widely used in automation industries along with conveyor belts for various automation needs.
