Abstract : A robotic kitting apparatus takes parts bags containing electronic components and places these bags in appropriate kit boxes for use in assembling electronic products. Each parts bag has a bar coded allocation tag that is read by a bar scanner. A computer controls a claw machine that picks up the parts bag from a conveyer belt and moves it to a kit box requiring that parts bag. (Author)
