TWO-DIMENSIONAL ROBOT (TDR)
The Branson TDR Series two-dimensional robots are microprocessor or PLC based automated parts handling systems. Designed by cleaning people for use in cleaning operations, these units are ruggedly constructed and appropriate for use in either production or clean room environments. TDR Series transport systems are available in two weight ranges (up to15kg and up to 50kg) and a variety of heights to accommodate most production needs.
TDR Series transport systems can be programmed through any of three ways:
Operating steps can be inserted, deleted, or replaced simply by using keystrokes. The microprocessor has the capacity to store up to 255 steps which can be divided among a maximum of ten programs.
The microprocessor is contained in a compact 19" rack-mountable control box. Located on the front of the box are: auto/manual mode selector, keypad pendant connector, RS-232 port, manual motor controls, an emergency stop switch, and LED display devices. LED displays indicate position and current activity as well as error codes if the self-diagnosing software senses problems.
Although a single TDR Transport head can dramatically increase process throughput, additional heads may be required for higher production now or in the future. Up to two additional heads can be added. Inter-head communication guarantees coordinated, troublefree operation even with complex applications. Standard units are 10 feet long with additional track and accessories available in 5 foot increments up to 40 feet maximum.
There are many paths to productivity using TDR Series transport equipment. Units work essentially unattended for full production shifts improving throughput. The consistent nature of operation will reduce process rejects improving yield. With eight 5v input channels and four 24v output channels, the TDR can control cleaning equipment parameters or act interactively with shop floor integration programs. Variable speed horizontal movement allows tailoring to the specific cleaning application.
