Title: Pneumatic wall-climbing robot based on cylinderApplicant: Fusheng Yu (CN)Patent number: CN101092153Publication date: December 26, 2007
The invention relates to pneumatic wall-climbing robot based on cylinder. It is made up of sucking disc, double acting cylinder, step motor, steering gear, and slide bar. Four sucking discs are set on the bracket to form the first set of adsorbent. The two ends of the cylinder bar are fixed on the sucking disc bracket and guided by the sliding bar. The other two sucking discs are set at another bracket, connected by steering gear and the step motor to form the second set of adsorbent which is fixed on the double acting cylinder. While working, the first and second adsorbents alternately work to realize advance circulation. While needing steering, the first adsorbent is divorced from the wall, the second one is adsorbed, which can make step motor drive steering device to make the first one rotate from 0 to 360° in situ.
Title: Glue spreading and positioning system of robotApplicant: Zhitong Robots System Co Ltd (CN)Patent number: CN101091942Publication date: December 26, 2007
The invention relates to a rubberizing-positioning system which is worked by robots, it includes a pair of middle-stages, two groups of X-directions to the unit, a group of Y-direction to the unit and two groups of sucker units, the characteristic of it is that: each group to the unit has two foundations, a chute which has two slides on it; a slide connects with an air cylinder, and another with a linear displacement sensor relatively, the head of the two slides has a pair of sticks, and joining a connection ambulacrum relatively, each group of sucker units includes two moldings, the long-molding fixes together to the stage, and the short molding installs on the long molding. At the head of the two moldings establishments, a adjustment board which extends to the X- and Y-direction, the adjustment board nose connects a sucker module separately; each sucker module has a sucker junction panel, a U support whose two extending terminal through a knuckle bearing pin connects at both sides of the sucker bracket, the base of the sucker bracket connects an air cylinder which brings along the sucker. The invention can carry on the pinpointing orientation to the glass in X-, Y- and Z-directions, and distinguishes the glass model, and enable robots to control the gelatinizing procedure automatically.
Title: Modularized portable mobile robot systemApplicant: Shanghai 3C Robot Co Ltd (CN)Patent number: CN101293539Publication date: October 29, 2008
