Medizingerätmontage und -prüfanlage

The Chal­len­ge Our cus­to­mer nee­ded a sys­tem that would assem­ble, test, and label their medi­cal device. Using in-pro­­cess checks, they wan­ted to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­plied with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards; addi­tio­nal­ly recor­ded data from post-pro­­cess tes­ting ope­ra­ti­ons was requi­red on all of the devices. The Solu­ti­on Invo­tec deve­lo­ped a sys­tem that employ­ed lean cell tech­no­lo­gy in an assem­bly line approach— incor­po­ra­ting a manu­al­ly index­ing, pal­let con­veyor to trans­fer assem­bled com­pon­ents bet­ween ope­ra­ti­ons. Machi­ne visi­on sys­tems were … Read More

Over­view Desi­gned and instal­led a new manu­fac­tu­ring lean cell to fold and assem­ble air­bag assem­blies using sound ergo­no­mic princi­ples and in-pro­­cess checks to veri­fy that all com­pon­ents in the assem­bly com­ply with rigid qua­li­ty stan­dards. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE  Air­bags were auto­ma­ti­cal­ly fold­ed at a sta­ti­on atten­ded by an ope­ra­tor whe­re they were manu­al­ly loa­ded, unloa­ded, and then trans­fer­red to the next ope­ra­ti­on. Rivets were auto­ma­ti­cal­ly instal­led at a sepa­ra­te sta­ti­on to attach com­po­nent hard­ware that was manu­al­ly loa­ded, the sub-asse­m­­b­ly … Read More
