Evana Automation Specialists, a leading Systems Integrator and builder of custom, automated assembly and test systems, recently received a contract to design and build three custom workstations for a leading automotive manufacturer of driveline systems. The workstations will support an existing Evana assembly and test system that produces electronic actuators for a transmission.
The new workstations will provide automatic and semi-automatic operations. One of the operations involves pressing magnets into cartridge forks. Another operation involves installing gears and seals into the encoder. In addition, gears and shafts will be pressed into the housings. Individual components will be manually loaded. Vision inspection, along with servo press force and distance data, will be captured and archived as part of the customer’s SCADA quality control system. The workstations are scheduled for a December 2015 delivery.
“The Evana workstations provide a solid platform for the assembly and testing of critical part production of an automobile transmission,” said Randy Wire, general manager of Evana Automation Specialists. “The solution also provides effective quality control measurement for part data.”
