INDEXING DIAL MULTIPLE PIECE ASSEMBLY MACHINE
Indexing dial multiple-piece assembly machines provide dwell time which allows for multiple, complex operations to be preformed accurately and typically at a lower cost than continuous motion machines. Central Machines is experienced with creating indexing machines that can perform operations such as assembly, testing, inspection, heat staking, ultra-sonic welding and flash trimming during this important dwell time. Operations such as electrical connector and component assembly, as well as other assemblies from ink jets to baby bottles can all be performed on our index machines.
The Indexing Dial Multiple Piece Assembly Machine is based on Central Machines standard dial-indexing platform with cam driven pick & place units mounted in board of the assembly dial to provide good accessability to the individual stations.
The machines include the following standard features:
- A Precision Indexer with precision stops will drive the tooling dial plate.
- Piece part fixtures mounted to the indexing dial plate will transport product between stations.
- Feeder bowls to orient product.
- In-feed tracks to transfer the product to the pick and place escapements.
- Precision cam driven pick and place devices that transfer product from the escapements to the fixture nest.
- Off load conveyor to transfer assemblies to a two position box diverter.
- Fixture tracking system will monitor good and bad parts thru the system.
- Touch screen operator interface with message display.
- Mechanical and Electrical operating manuals.
Each station is mounted on identical station plates for added flexibility, and is constructed with tooling mounted to a ground steel top plate supported by a fabricated steel base. Mechanical, pneumatic and electrical equipment are group mounted on the base. Electrical controls are mounted in NEMA 12 style enclosures and all tooling will be hardened and ground. Machine components can be anodized, plated, or painted as necessary. Pinch points and rotating sections will be guarded to prevent operator injury. Perimeter guarding is electrically interlocked and fabricated with clear polycarbonate panels and extruded aluminum.
