Over­view Desi­gned and instal­led a new, ful­ly auto­ma­tic assem­bly and test sys­tem to assem­ble mul­ti­ple models of sprag style, auto­mo­ti­ve clutch assem­blies. A sin­gle machi­ne chas­sis was desi­red with a pair of syn­chro­nous trans­fer sys­tems cou­pled by an accu­mu­la­ting con­veyor. Model chan­ge-over requi­re­ments inclu­ded both auto­ma­tic and manu­al ope­ra­ti­ons with too­ling and posi­ti­on feed­back at all set points to veri­fy cor­rect model set­ups.

Over­view Desi­gned and instal­led new manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess equip­ment to align and assem­ble air­bag infla­tors with gas gui­des using sound ergo­no­mic princi­ples and in-pro­­cess checks to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­plied with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE Our custo­mer nee­ded to attach an air­bag infla­tor to the gas gui­de. This pro­duct was requi­red to with­stand high pres­su­re in ope­ra­ti­on. The assem­bly pro­cess would need to reli­ab­ly join the­se parts and it was key to the suc­cess of … Read More

The Chal­len­ge: Increa­se Pro­duc­tion While Eli­mi­na­ting Error One manu­fac­tu­rer, known for their high-qua­­li­­ty con­su­mer pro­duc­ts, faced fore­casts that their cur­rent pro­duc­tion capa­bi­li­ties could not hand­le. As a result, they nee­ded to deve­lop a sys­tem that could bet­ter faci­li­ta­te part chan­geo­ver and redu­ce cycle times—all while main­tai­ning the inte­gri­ty of their pro­duct. In addi­ti­on, the com­pa­ny was moving pro­duc­tion from Euro­pe to the US. To keep costs low, the sys­tem had to accu­rate­ly assem­ble, inspect, and test their pro­duct with mini­mum … Read More
