A special non-metallic fixture (3), loaded onto an automatic X-Y table
(4), moves through a programmed pattern to visit the three pick and place
loading stations, sequentially assembling five components at each of four
positions for a total of twenty assemblies per fixture.
In this example, three vibratory bowls (1) orient and feed different
parts that make up an automotive assembly.
Escapement devices on each bowl isolate and present the parts to three
pick and place units (2).
