Multi-Station Assembly & Inspection System

This Multi-Station Assembly & Inspection System assembles the Gap Compensating Nut Assembly at a rate of 30+ parts per minute. The assembly process is accomplished by rotary motion using a Camco indexing drive with 16 positions. Each of the 16 positions nest two part; A and B. Parts are orientated by feeder-bowls, presented to the dial via linear vibratory track feeders and placed in and out of the dial with pneumatic pick and place units. All finished part assemblies are inspected by two Cognex cameras; a colored angle view and a side view. Good/Passing finished part assemblies are removed from the dial, deposited into shipping boxes presented to the operator to seal and label once full. Bad/Failed part assemblies are deposited onto a conveyor belt, tracked during travel and sorted into totes based on their defect(s).

Bulk feed systems for the larger components reduce loading times and quantities.

The large main (and three smaller) enclosures protect the UL Certified electrical backpanels from the environmental factors within the production facility (ie. oil, dust, etc). The 13 guard doors provide easy and safe access into the machine; automatically switching the internal lights on and off to ease maintenance.

The 550+ Alarms makes discovering, diagnosing & resolving issues quick — keeping the machine producing.

A collection of top of the line components, primarily Allen-Bradley, form a large network of intelligent devices; minimizing electrical and software troubleshooting by reducing the amount of wire terminations. Pneumatic runs are kept short by placing Ethernet/IP valve bank manifolds local to their use. Various levels of permissions allow the administrator to customize each user’s access and responsibilities. The optional remote pendant allows maintenance to debug each individual station, capable of stepping forward and backward through the routines.


The capabilities of this equipment are designed to meet, if not exceed, a set of custom requirements based on the needs of our customer. Our engineers are more than happy to customize a machine to your requirements.
