Keywords: Automatic rod packing machine, four-bar linkage mechanism, feeding system

The main objective of this study is to improve the feeding system of a machine for automatically packing rod-shaped objects such as chopsticks. The automatic rod packing machine uses a motor to drive a four-bar linkage mechanism to achieve automatic feeding, but this feeding system can cause noise, and the operation process requires a large torque to prevent components from jamming in the storage box. Thus, the internal mechanism is susceptible to damage by stress, and the adjustment of the machine is very complicated when the damaged components are renewed. To overcome this shortcoming, the feeding system of a conventional machine for automatically packing rod-shaped objects such as chopsticks is first drawn in a 3D diagram. Then, the proposed feeding system of the machine tool, which includes motors, lead screws and linear bearings, is used to replace the four-bar linkage mechanism of the conventional automatic rod packing machine feeding system to reduce the noise generated by the mechanism when transporting materials and to reduce the damage of the internal mechanism due to stress, and thus the frequency of parts replacement. This design is equipped with two storage boxes and improves the feeding efficiency, the feeding system is made of sheet metal and is combined with motors, lead screws, and linear bearings, and its motion is tested to complete the development and design of the feeding system of the improved machine for automatically packing rod-shaped objects such as chopsticks.
