and Check System - Vibrating Bowl Feed & Laser Measure
To meet the demands of 100% checking and inspection
requirement that are becoming standard within the automotive industry,
TQC designed and manufactured a standalone machine for the automatic
feeding and checking of an automotive plug.
Utilising an elevating hopper and vibratory
bowl feeder to accept bulk product and orientate each plug, a laser
measurement system is incorporated to check a feature on the product.
The plug is transported through the machine using a walking beam
and the part is rotated a full 360 degrees.
The automotive industry based customer required
a 100% check to ensure that a continuous bead of thread locking
sealant is the correct thickness and continuous round the flange.
The system accommodates a single size
of stud at any one time, but is adjustable for sizes from M10 to
M20, the overall throughput was 20 studs per minute.
