Apparatus for fitting a flexible strip

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #5031293.

The robot arrangement for mounting a sealing strip on a mounting flange comprises a robot hand supported at the end of a robot arm. The sealing strip is received by the robot hand at one point and driven through the hand to emerge at another point. Its emerging end is engaged by a right-angled guide finger. As the strip movement continues, this finger pivots and constrains the strip to follow a curved path around a guide roller. The robot arm then moves the robot hand towards the flange so that the curved strip engages the flange. Thereafter, the finger is accelerated by a motor out of engagement with the strip. The robot arm then drives the robot hand along the flange, thus laying the strip on to the flange.
