Body & Lid Feed Systems
Bodies and lids are manually loaded into elevating bulk feeders, which store and transfer them on demand to their respective vibratory bowl feeders. The components are fed and orientated by the vibratory bowl feeders, before being transferred to vibratory linear tracks. The vibratory bowl feeders are internally lined with soft felt to reduce and minimise product marking.
A rotary indexing table collects two bodies at a time from the discharge end of the body feed system’s linear track, before presenting them to the discharge position of the lid feed system.
Lid Pick and Place
A pick and place handling system collects two lids at a time and place them onto two bodies presented by the indexing table.
A tamp station on the indexing table presses down on the lid and body together to form the assembled component.
A check station tests two assembled components at a time to ensure that the lid is present and correctly pressed down onto the body.
Good/Bad Eject Stations
Components found to be missing the lid, or with the lid incorrectly tamped, are rejected from the system into a storage container.
Components that pass the check station are ejected from the system into the customer’s storage containers.
RNA design and develop rotary indexing system that is tailored to the customer’s specific applications. The system can be utilized in many environments ranging from assembly, machining, testing, printing to parts positioning and transfer.
