Experimental investigation of parts vibratory alignment exciting immovably based part
AbstractPresented paper investigates vibratory alignment and matching of the parts being assembled automaticallyas immovably based receiving part is vibratory excited. Experimental setup for alignment of the parts having rec-tangular and circular cross-sections is given. Dependencies of alignment duration on excitation parameters, initial pre-load and axial misalignment for circular and rectangular chamferless parts are given. Areas of excitation and system parameters sets have been defined where the process of alignment is stable.The obtained experimental data confirmed that investigated vibratory alignment is reliable method suitable for automated assembly of the parts, though requiring exci-tation amplitude, frequency and initial preload to be prop-erly chosen.
