  • Patent number: 4733457
    Abstract: The mobile hand or mechanical hand is operated by a power system for driving the operative tool, and a sensor device is provided concordantly acting with the power system but having limited power, which is associated with a sight to determine a consensus to the activation of the power system when--in the absence of contrasts due to positioning irregularity of the component to be applied--said sensor device imposes an initial displacement of the same component.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: January 29, 1986
    Date of Patent: March 29, 1988
    Assignee: Metalmeccanica Gori & Zucchi M.G.Z. S.p.A.
    Inventors: Ezio Tega, Ezio Bazzo
  • Patent number: 4711015
    Abstract: Apparatus for predisposing, handling and assembling axial electronic components (C, P) (or other elements) on printed circuit cards and for equivalent uses, which includes cutting tools (34) and bending tools (88) for, respectively, cutting and bending the rheophores (R) as well as for retaining the shaped component, which all operate in a same and single station; its transfer to the operative station being carried out by the mobile hand of a robot whose body (50) carries some of said tools.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 11, 1985
    Date of Patent: December 8, 1987
    Assignee: Metalmeccanica Gori & Zucchi M.G.Z, S.p.A.
    Inventors: Ezio Tega, Fabrizio Piccini, Marco Mazzini, Raffaello Magi
  • Patent number: 4311003
    Abstract: The invention contemplates a chain-making machine having the capability of making continuous chain wherein successive links follow a predetermined relative size and shape, with selective applicability to different input materials, including wire and/or flat ribbon, for the respective successive links. For each link-forming cycle, the production of one kind of link may call for one kind of motion in a manufactured-chain accumulating device, while production of another kind of link may call for a different kind of motion in the accumulating device, yet the machine includes provision for proper accommodation of these different motions, as each different link is formed, to the end that the resulting product will be free of entanglement.

    Filed: February 19, 1980
    Date of Patent: January 19, 1982
    Assignee: Emmegizeta Metalmeccanica Gori & Zucchi M.G.Z. S.p.A.
    Inventor: Ezio Tega
  • Patent number: 4175379
    Abstract: The invention contemplates a single machine comprising two different wire feed systems and two different link-forming counter-pliers systems, each unique to a preselected different link size and/or shape, and a shuttle-borne counter-pliers unit is caused to cooperate, in a preselected program pattern, with one or with the other of the pliers systems (and associated wire-feed system), whereby the cumulative chain assembly of differently sized and/or shaped links may be developed in accordance with the pattern of shuttle operation.

    Date of Patent: November 27, 1979
    Inventor: Ezio Tega
  • Patent number: 4127987
    Abstract: The invention contemplates an automatic selectively programmable machine for making chains having links of different size in interlaced and connected assembly. By programming, the size and interlaced combination of different links can be selected to produce a wide variety of chain patterns.
