& Systems - Assembly & Testing
Rotary assembly machines are used extensively
in fully and semi automatic assembly and test.
The advantages of using an indexing or continuous
motion dial plate with a series of fixtures are the relative low
cost and rapid index of the transport system.
Fully automatic systems can reach throughputs
of 400 a minute or more when continuous motion is used. The use
of a rotary assembly and test machine is advantageous when the cycle
time is greater than 5 seconds and an operator is best used for
some of the assembly processes.
The operator can be used to position difficult
to feed parts into the fixtures or used as a final inspection operation,
Rotary or carousel type assembly machines can
also offer a compact form of semi automatic machine. The nest tooling
tends to be dumb because of the continuous rotation.
The assembly and test tooling is usually arranged in a radial fashion
secured outside of the dial plate. Twin or even multiple track nests
are possible, as are interchangeable nests for different variants.
TQC have considerable experience in engineering
rotary assembly machines, combining sophisticated test and assembly
on the same machine.
