Einstellrad Montageanlage

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

Gerät zum Biegen und Nieten von Airbags

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

Messuhrenmontageanlage

Over­view Engi­nee­red and instal­led a new semi-auto­­ma­­ted machi­ne to assem­ble pins to a rub­ber val­ve, uti­li­zing mini­mal ope­ra­tor inter­ac­tion while maxi­mi­zing qua­li­ty and through­put on a thought­ful­ly desi­gned no-tool chan­­ge-over plat­form. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE Our cus­to­mer was swam­ped with new orders and frus­tra­ted by try­ing to find someo­ne to engi­neer, build and install a new semi-auto­­ma­­ted machi­ne to assem­ble and crimp pins onto a rub­ber val­ve. This machi­ne nee­ded to maxi­mi­ze qua­li­ty and through­put on a thought­ful­ly desi­gned no-tool chan­geo­ver … Read More

Over­view We worked with our cus­to­mer to deve­lop a cus­tom solu­ti­on to a signi­fi­cant pro­cess pro­blem they had with the tes­ting of their tem­pe­ra­tu­re pro­bes. PRO­BLEMS WE SOL­VE One of our cus­to­mers had a signi­fi­cant pro­cess hurd­le in the launch of one of their tem­pe­ra­tu­re pro­be pro­grams. They nee­ded an indi­vi­du­al machi­ne that mea­su­red for per­for­mance cha­rac­te­ris­tics as well as labe­led and seria­li­zed the sen­sors based on the results of the tes­ting. This pro­cess was requi­red to ensu­re that non-con­­forming … Read More
