Hi everyone, I have a project where I have to sort 1000's of metal pieces made of spring steel, that are all shaped as "V"'s. I've considered a few ideas - but was looking for some input because none of my ideas so far are that reliable. So... the V's are all the same size. made of spring steel (magnetic) are made of flat stock (approximately 0.2" wide, and 0.05" thick, with 2" legs on each side of the V, bent at about 30 degrees. They are delivered in a bin, mixed up in a big mess. I need to be able to sort them so they all stack neatly, one inside the other, preferably mechanically. Ideally I would like to not use a vision system, robotic arms, or anything cost intensive. I've considered things like a magnetic "nail alignment" system, however I dont think that solves the problem... I've also considered letting them fall down an angled slightly friction inducing plane,. hoping that they would self orient into downward facing arrows. Anyone have any ideas? Any similar machines for different applications that do this? Thanks in advance!
