Introduction
Like all Rexroth flexible assembly systems,
TSplus is constructed solely from standardized modules that are precisely matched to
each other. One important benefit of this
modular design is that you can interlink
manual and automatic work stations freely,
making TSplus suitable for virtually any assembly task. Another is that you can easily
expand a TSplus installation: Use TSplus
alone as a closed system, or as a subinstallation in a higher-order materials-handling, manufacturing or assembly system.
The manual is divided into the following
sections to make it easier to use:
• Application and Function
Gives general information about the
TSplus Lift-Rotate unit.
• Technical Data

Application and Function
The lift-rotate module is designed to
change the horizontal orientation of the
workpiece pallet on the transfer line by
rotating the workpiece pallet 90º or 180°.
This module will function with pallet sizes
from (160 mm x 160 mm) to (480 mm x 480
mm). However, if the workpiece pallet is not
square, rotation must be limited to 180º by
the host controller.
Each lift-rotate module consists of two
components; the lift-rotate unit and the
control enclosure. The lift rotate unit performs the rotational positioning function. It
uses a parallel shaft indexer driven by a DC
gearmotor for variable speed control of rotation. The lift-unit mounts to the underside
T-slots of the conveyor section.
The control enclosure contains the motor
drive assembly and terminal strip for all wiring connections. It may be mounted to the
T-slots in the side of the belt section or leg
sets near the lift-rotate unit. The controller
contains the logic to complete one 90°
rotate cycle. An external signal must be
provided by a host controller to initiate the
rotate cycle; 180° rotation can be obtained
by cycling the module twice. The lift and
lower movements of the lift-rotate module
are also controlled by the host controller.
Speed control of the lift and lower operation is provided by flow controls and endcushion adjustments on the pneumatic
cylinder. Speed control of the rotate cycle
is provided by an adjustable potentiometer
located on the motor drive controller inside
the control enclosure.
Stop gates and proximity switches must
be supplied separately to provide for pallet
pre-stop, stop, and pallet present sensing. In addition a double-acting detented
pneumatic valve will be required to control
the lift/lower cylinder.
In operation, the lift plate on the lift-rotate
unit contacts the workpiece and positions
itself into the corners of the workpiece
pallet’s frame. Lift action is provided by a
pneumatic cylinder with the capability to lift
up to 30 kilograms or about 66 pounds.
The lift-rotate unit has a 90mm nonadjustable stoke which in operation lifts
the workpiece pallet 68mm above the
system’s
transport height. This nonadjustable stoke ensures that the rotating
workpiece pallet will clear any other modules or components which are attached to
the transfer line near the lift-rotate unit.
As with other modules, the lift-rotate unit
uses proximity switches which signal the
status of the device. One proximity switch
indicates when the module is in the lift
position while another indicates when it
is lowered. In addition, a third proximity
switch senses the position of a flag on
the shaft of the rotate unit. This switch
indicates each 90º increment of workpiece
pallet rotation.
The rotational movement is supplied by a
direct current gearmotor and cam indexer.
Rotation speed and the direction of rotation must be selected at the time of installation. The lift-rotate unit is not designed
for force absorption, or programmable bidirectional operation. However, a special
bi-directional unit is available as a modified
standard option.
NOTE: All proximity switches are included for lift-rotate operation. A separate proximity switch and stop gate are
required to detect “Pallet Present” This
stop gate and proximity switch typically
attach to the conveyor side rail.

Adjustments
Rotate cycle cam adjustments
(Fig. 7 & 8)
Clockwise lift-plate rotation
(Fig. 7)
Counterclockwise lift-plate
rotation (Fig. 8)
The rotation cycle cam is used to adjust
the stopping position of the unit. When the
rotate home limit switch rolls back up onto
the cam, the unit will stop. Depending on
rotation speed and load, a varying amount
of “dwell” will be required for the unit to
come to a stop after the limit switch has
engaged the cam.
With the drive motor wired for clockwise
lift-plate rotation, the cam lobe will rotate
counterclockwise. With the Rotate Complete proximity switch in the on position,
loosen the set screw in the rotate cycle
cam and turn it until the Rotate Home
limit switch is just starting the dwell cycle
(Fig. 7). The unit will automatically initiate
another rotate cycle if the cam passes
beyond the dwell area of the Rotate Home
limit switch.
With the drive motor wired for counterclockwise lift-plate rotation, the cam lobe
will rotate clockwise. With the Rotate
Complete proximity switch in the on position, loosen the set screw in the rotate
cycle cam and turn it until the Rotate Home
limit switch is just starting the dwell cycle
(Fig. 8). The unit will automatically initiate
another rotate cycle if the cam passes
beyond the dwell area of the Rotate Home
limit switch.
The amount of dwell on the rotation cycle
cam is pre-set at the factory for a nominal
“home” position based on a clockwise
direction, full-speed rotation, and no load.
However, some final adjustment will be
required once the unit is installed. The
amount of adjustment will vary depending
on the load and speed of rotation. Also, the
direction of rotation will change the orientation of the cam (see Fig. 7 & 8).
Adjust the cam by loosening the set-screw
and rotating the cam on the shaft. The cam
is in position with the proper amount of
dwell once the unit’s rotation cycle ends
with the exciter for the “rotate complete”
proximity switch aligned with the proximity switch. See the following sections for
specifics on cam orientation for clockwise
and counterclockwise rotation.

Operating Instructions
The TSplus conveyor is designed to transport Bosch WT2 workpiece pallets or WT2
workpiece pallet frames with integrated
fixtures built into the pallet design. Since
the conveyor is modular in design and part
of a larger operating assembly system, it
is the responsibility of the integrator or
end user to provide a control system and
WARNING!
• Use a qualified technician who is familiar with the control
system during the initial start-up.
• In case of control system failure, DO NOT attempt to
catch or in any way prevent a pallet from falling from the
end of the conveyor. Use the emergency stop switch to
halt conveyor movement!
• KEEP HANDS CLEAR of moving conveyors and pallets.
Pallet accumulation creates a crush hazard between
pallets, stop gates, and guide rails. A crush and pinch
hazard exists between Lift-Position Units, Lift-Transfer
Units, and Lift-Rotate Units. Assembly operations should
be performed ONLY when the workpiece pallet has
come to a complete stop.
• DO NOT perform pressing operations on a workpiece
pallet without the use of a Lift-Position Unit.
• DO NOT operate the conveyor or any other components
in the system with the guards removed. It is the operator’s responsibility to make sure that all guards, covers,
and other safety equipment is in place before the system
is put into operation.
operating procedures. For your safety,
please observe the following guidelines
when operating the conveyor:
CAUTION!
• Do not operate or work near mechanical equipment when
wearing loose clothing. Moving components such as roller
chain, drive belts, drive shafts and pallets can snag long
belts, scarves, ties and other loose fitting garments, pull the
worker into the equipment and cause serious, or in extreme
cases, life threatening injury.
• Operators having long hair must wear appropriate head protection (hair nets, hats, and hair caps)
to minimize the risk associated with working near moving
machinery. Hanging hair can get caught in moving components such as roller chain, drive belts, drive shafts and pallets, pull the worker into the equipment and cause serious,
or in extreme cases, life threatening injury.
