The inclined length measuring bench is an inclined iron structure where the cylinders roll from one end to the other by gravity. It can be used with cylinders but also with pipes. At the end of the descent, the cylinder is collected in a tilting trolley. Thanks to a pneumatic cylinder, the trolley goes up and unloads the cylinder in the next station. The inclined length measuring bed therefore incorporates a cylinder or tube length measuring mechanism. In this case a pneumatic cylinder pushes the cylinder against a tailstock plate in order to align it on the side of the nozzle and at this point the cylinder length is measured by a laser.
The distance between the support lines is designed so that the structure is universal and can support any type of gas cylinder processed on the plant.
The width of the bidirectional inclined bench is designed on the basis of the longest product processed by the line.
The length of the frame is designed according to the dimensional needs required by the layout.
The height of the frame is studied according to the machinery that precedes it in the line.
The inclinations are designed both to make the cylinder reach the loading height of the subsequent machinery and to make the piece roll without making it acquire too much speed.
