dc.description.abstractVibratory bowl feeders are widely used in automatic assembly lines. The availability of good models to predict the behavior of parts inside of them is highly useful. This work presents a method that predicts the natural resting aspects probability profile for three parts named “T” shape, Arc Chute and Magnet under a new approach based on its inertial properties. The work also analyzes the dynamic behavior of the parts Arc Chute and Magnet on a vibratory bowl feeder. The analysis studied the part’s behavior on the bowl floor and bowl track. The main parameters governing the transport phenomena were modeled for values used in analysis made by previous researchers. In general, the probability profile is directly proportional to the mass distribution around an axis perpendicular to the plane of the resting aspect (coincident with the center of gravity), and inversely proportional to the height of the center of gravity. This represents an advantage over previous methods, due to simplicity, easy implementation and visualization for parts with complex geometries.
dc.description.abstractLos alimentadores vibratorios son ampliamente usados en líneas de ensamblaje automatizadas. La disponibilidad de buenos modelos que predigan el comportamiento de piezas en su interior es altamente útil. Este trabajo presenta un método que predice la probabilidad de descanso natural de tres piezas llamadas forma “T”, Arc Chute y Magnet bajo un nuevo enfoque basado en sus propiedades inerciales. El trabajo también analiza el comportamiento dinámico de piezas Arc Chute y Magnet al interior de un alimentador vibratorio. El análisis estudia la conducta de las piezas en el piso del tazón del alimentador y en el carril inclinado del alimentador. Los parámetros principales que gobiernan el fenómeno de transporte fueron modelados para valores usados en trabajos realizados por investigadores previos. En general, el perfil de probabilidades es directamente proporcional a la distribución de masa alrededor de un eje, perpendicular al plano del aspecto de descanso y coincidente con el centro de gravedad, e inversamente proporcional a la altura del centro de gravedad medida desde ese aspecto. Esto representa una ventaja considerable con respecto a otros métodos usados, debido a la simplicidad, fácil implementación y visualización para partes con geometrías complejas.
