Automated module marking the boundaries of the active layer in the fuel rods

 

(57) Abstract:

The invention relates to the technical equipment and is intended to mark the boundaries of the active layer in the fuel rods in the process of their manufacture. The essence of the invention: between x-ray machine and an industrial robot installed orienting the device with a device for monitoring and Plater, electrically connected with the x-ray machine and an industrial robot. Orienting the device is a vertically installed carriage drive, fixed hinge, the Plater is a spring-loaded writing element, fastened together with a sensor for applying labels on the axis of the low-speed motor through semivowel lever. Device for observations made in the form of a fluorescent plate with frame and mirror, pivotally installed at an angle. Pickup device of an industrial robot consists of two mechanical hands with tongs mounted in vertical guides and protivostoyanie connected to the actuator to move the hands and grip each represents traverse arcuate hooks. 2 tli

The objective of the invention is to increase productivity when marking the boundaries of the active layer in the fuel rods.

This is achieved by automated module marking the boundaries of the active layer in the fuel rod contains an x-ray machine, industrial robot, Plater, the orienting device and the device for observation, while the orienting device, a device for monitoring and marker set between the x-ray machine and an industrial robot and is connected electrically, and orienting the device is made in the form of a vertically installed the carriage and pivoted by the actuator, the marker is made in the form of a spring-loaded writing element with sensor applying labels and installed by semivowel lever on the axis of the slow speed of the engine, device for observations made in the form of a fluorescent plate with a marker and set at an angle of a mirror, and industrial robot contains two mechanical hands with tongs, vertical guides and the drive movement of the hands, and mechanical arms mounted in vertical guides and protivostoyanie attached to the actuator to move the hands and grip each of the arms made in W inventive, because the installation carriage vertically orienting device allows the passage of x-rays through the fuel elements and using devices to monitor a quick orientation, and the actuator is fixed hinge, creates the necessary friction torque for pressing the rotating roller to the guide carriage, which simplifies the design.

The design of the marker allows speed to adjust the distance from the shaft to the writing element for different sizes, and installation of the sensor causing marks on semivowel the lever is to simplify the construction and to accelerate the process mark.

The use of two-handed industrial robot with tongs in the form of a beam with curved hooks allows one fuel rod set, and the other to remove the fuel rods of different lengths, and protivostoyanie mechanical connection of the arms to the vertical movement mechanism allows to reduce the size and power of the actuator due to the mutual compensation of their own weight, which simplifies the design.

Electrical connection the x-ray machine and an industrial robot with orienting device and Plater provides simultaneous operation of an industrial robot via the TRANS is it a device with a feeder to scan and Vice versa.

In Fig. 1 presents a General view of the module of Fig. 2 - orienting the device with a device for monitoring and marker.

Automated module markup fuel element consists of an x-ray apparatus 1, an industrial robot 2, marker 3, the orienting device 4 device for observation 5, the control system 6, shop loading and unloading 7.

The orienting device 4 consists of a carriage 8 with a gear 9 fixed hinge and clamping the rotating roller 10 to the guide 11 of the carriage 8.

Marker 3 consists of a spring-loaded writing element 12, the sensor applying labels 13 installed on the axis of the low-speed motor 14 through semivowel lever 15.

A device for monitoring 5 installed on a frame orienting device 4 consists of a fluorescent plate 16, the reference strings 17 and pivotally installed at an angle of mirror 18.

The gripper 18 industrial robot 2 consists of two robotic arms 20 protivostoyanie connected to the mechanism 21 vertical movement, and a mechanical gripper arms 20 consists of a head plate 22 and arcuate hooks 23.

Automated module RA and control panel 6 includes a system control module. Industrial robot 2 takes the fuel rod from the magazine 7 and sets on the carriage 8 orienting device 4. Enables the actuator 9 and the carriage 8 at a higher speed is fed to the x-ray beam x-ray device 1, where the carriage 8 is automatically scan rate. When moving reference strings 17 on the fluorescent plate 16, the operator, seeing the mirror 18 border of the active layer of a fuel rod, stops the carriage 8.

Turns on the electric motor 14 that rotates lamivudin the lever 15, and a spring-loaded writing element 12 makes the markup on one end of a fuel rod. Sensor application label 13 issues a command and the carriage 8 takes the other end of the fuel rod under the markup.

After marking the boundaries of the active layer of a fuel rod sensor 13 issues a command readiness of an industrial robot 2 and the carriage return 8 to its original position.

While the mark of the first fuel rod, the industrial robot 2 was taken to the loading area of the carriage next TVEL.

When the carriage 8 in the initial position activates the drive mechanism 21 vertical movement and the gripper 19 with the help of matchmakers removes the marked-up fuel elements and sets a new one.

After that, the cycle stand is a reliable, desired performance automated module markup fuel rods.

Managed to drastically reduce the impact on the operator of air ionized by x-rays, improve the technical level of production. Actual performance has increased by 5.3 times.

Automated module marking the boundaries of the active layer in the fuel rods containing the x-ray machine, industrial robot, Plater, the orienting device and the device for observation, while the orienting device, a device for monitoring and marker set between the x-ray machine and an industrial robot and is connected electrically, and orienting the device is made in the form of a vertically installed the carriage and pivoted by the actuator, the marker is made in the form of a spring-loaded writing element with sensor applying labels and installed by semivowel lever on the axis of the low-speed motor, a device for observations made in the form of a fluorescent plate with a marker and set at an angle mirror, while the industrial robot contains two mechanical hands with tongs, vertical guides and the drive movement R the control movements of the hands, and grip each of the arms is made in the form of a beam with curved hooks.
