Plastic Device Automation

Plastic Device Automation – The assembly system is designed around a race track type conveyor and feeds tooled pallets around the system to one of 10 modules. As the pallet progresses, the device on the pallet is populated with the individual components. At each stage the product assembly is inspected, with no added values to the device if it fails any functional or assembly checks. Plastic device automation works well to obtain competitive advantages in this common problem.

Parts are fed using a combination of bowl feeding and tray feeds system. Auto screw feed systems are also employed to secure part of the assembly, PCB’s were loaded using a high speed industrial robot, which was also used to present the PCB for inspection and parts type verification using an SP Automation & Robotics automatic inspection systems.

Rejected parts were off loaded into a segregated collection area, with final “good parts” being off loaded and fed to a series of final inspection stations before packaging.

Plastic device automation has seen our clients expand their workforce by 40%, as they are now better places to meet the demand of modern production.
