Claim of US Patent No. 10,605,023

1. An automatic push corer system comprising:a base;
a power group, disposed on the base, the power group having a rotating shaft and a motor, the rotating shaft coupled to the motor;
a Geneva transmission group, disposed on the base, the Geneva transmission group having a driving member and a driven member, the driving member coupled to the rotating shaft of the power group, the driven member coupled to the driving member, the driving member configured to control the driven member to perform a first intermittent rotary motion;
an intermittent transmission group, disposed on the base, the intermittent transmission group having a first transmission member and a second transmission member, the first transmission member coupled to the rotating shaft of the power group, and the second transmission member coupled to the first transmission member, the first transmission member configured to cooperate with the second transmission member to perform a second intermittent rotary motion;
a vertical coring transmission group, disposed on the base, the vertical coring transmission group having a third transmission member, a fourth transmission member, and a fifth transmission member, the third transmission member coupled to the second transmission member of the intermittent transmission group, and the third transmission member coupled to the fourth transmission member and the fifth transmission member, the third transmission member configured to cooperate with the second intermittent rotary motion of the intermittent transmission group to control the fourth transmission member and the fifth transmission member to perform a third intermittent rotary motion;
a clamp group, coupled to the fourth transmission member and the fifth transmission member of the vertical coring transmission group, the clamp group configured to cooperate with the third intermittent rotary motion of the vertical coring transmission group to perform a lifting reciprocation; and
a coring group, coupled to the driven member of the Geneva transmission group, the coring group having a plurality of coring tubes, the coring group configured to cooperate with the first intermittent rotary motion of the driven member, and cooperate with the lifting reciprocation of the clamp group, to respectively complete a coring operation and a tubing replacing operation.
