METHOD AND DEVICE FOR REMOVING UPPERMOST OBJECT FROM STACK
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH04159923
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

PURPOSE: To separate a card from paper sheet between cards by attaching a pin and a suction pad to a support head movable vertically and to the right and left, inserting the pin into an opening of the card, and bringing it into contact with the paper sheet below it to lift the card.

CONSTITUTION: A flexible paper sheet is nipped between cards 12 in which openings 36 are formed on four sides thereof and is loaded. A plurality of pins 22 insertable into the opening 36 and suction pad 20 are attached to a support head 10 movable vertically and to the right and left, and the pin 22 is energized downward by a spring 26. When the head 10 is lowered on an uppermost card 12, the pin 22 passes through the opening 36 to press the paper sheet 14, and the card 12 is sucked and lifted by the pad 20 to separate the card 12 from the sheet 14 in order to convey the card 12. Next, the head 10 is returned, and the pin 22 is pressed against the sheet 14 to absorb and lift it by the pad 20 so as to cause a clearance between the sheet 14 and the card 12 below it so that air creeps therein to convey the sheet 14 only.
