Instal­led new manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess equip­ment to manu­fac­tu­re Infla­t­a­ble Side Curtain assem­blies with sound ergo­no­mic princi­ples and in-pro­cess checks to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­plied with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards.

PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE

Cushion Assem­bly: Fold­ed Cushions have rivets, bolts and was­hers instal­led with push­pins and ramps to com­ple­te the cushion sub-assem­bly. Press clamps are manu­al­ly advan­ced and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly locked to press and secu­re com­pon­ents in cushion tabs and will not be release until all pro­cess checks are com­ple­te. Adjus­ta­ble fix­tures with line­ar posi­ti­on trans­du­cers and quick chan­ge fea­tures move bet­ween posi­ti­ons to accom­mo­da­te pro­ces­sing LH and RH models from the same side of the assem­bly sta­ti­on.

Inflator/Bracket Assem­bly: Infla­tors and Bra­ckets are manu­al­ly clo­cked into the cor­rect radi­al ori­en­ta­ti­on and auto­ma­ti­cal­ly veri­fied to be pro­per­ly loa­ded befo­re the pres­ses advan­ce to fas­ten the assem­bly. Bra­ckets are posi­tio­ned with the requi­red radi­al ori­en­ta­ti­on and secu­red to the infla­tor with a crim­ping ope­ra­ti­on.

TOOLS WE USE

Line­ar posi­ti­on trans­du­cers report the posi­ti­on of adjus­ta­ble fix­tures for model set­up veri­fi­ca­ti­on, manu­al­ly advan­ced and pneu­ma­ti­cal­ly locked clamps eli­mi­na­te too­ling guards and pro­vi­de a method to con­trol reject hand­ling. TOX press sys­tems uti­li­ze cus­tom pres­su­re con­trol­lers, a pres­su­re switch and inte­gra­ted line­ar distance trans­du­cers for pro­cess opti­miz­a­ti­on. The con­trol sys­tem inclu­des an Allen Brad­ley PLC and Panel­View ope­ra­tor inter­face ter­mi­nal.

SOLU­TI­ONS WE PRO­VI­DE

Cushion Assem­bly: Adjus­ta­ble fix­tu­ring with quick-chan­ge fea­tures and set­up veri­fi­ca­ti­on in the sta­ti­on con­trol­ler allows for a rapid chan­ge bet­ween models. A redu­ced fix­tu­re inven­to­ry and the capa­bi­li­ty to adapt to future chan­ges and new models without exten­si­ve re-too­ling or purcha­sing new capi­tal equip­ment can be rea­li­zed.

Inflator/Bracket Assem­bly: Pro­gramm­a­ble TOX press pres­su­re con­trol­lers allow the pro­cess to be fine tun­ed for model spe­ci­fic requi­re­ments and the mul­ti­ple press arran­ge­ment eli­mi­na­tes the need for press tool set-ups bet­ween LH and RH models.
