Automatic framing of solar modules
Assembly of all frame parts is accomplished by a combination of robot movements and clamping devices within the gripper.
The robot takes a module out of the centering station, moves it to the moistening station first and then inserts the laminate into the U -channel of the frame member that is presented on the assembly table. The frame members are manually loaded into a buffer magazine and then indexed into the station by means of a conveyor. A corner key insertion station presses the corner keys into the short frame members. The corner keys are filled as bulk load into a separating bowl and automatically indexed to the insertion station.
