초록

A control system for a needle singulation and infeed apparatus that automatically picks up surgical needles in random, un-oriented positions on a transport conveyor or like device, and places them in oriented positions for suture attachment at a fully automated needle swaging station. The apparatus employs one or more robot devices for picking up the needles and placing them in individual precision engagement devices for sequential conveyance to an automatic swaging machine. After gripping the needle, and, depending upon the orientation of the needle wit...
