When working with pin tools
on robots the clearance issue is of most importance. The pin tool
must be able to operate over obstructions on the deck of the robot.
The critical height or "Z"
dimension on the pin tools is determined by the mounting plates of the
robot systems and the length of the pins and the floating fixture that
contains them. We have illustrated the "Z" dimensions for each of
the robot mounting plates and the 5 different length pins used in our
floating pin tools. The illustrations are grouped around the
mounting plate and all five pin lengths are illustrated in the drawings.
