The line is used for automatic assembly of adapters and semi-automatic assembly of multiports using pre-assembled adapters.
The line consists of two stations:
1 station – installation of adapters in multiports,
2 station – automatic assembly of O-rings on adapters
At the first station, the operator is responsible for assembling multiports and supplementing components in Wibramet vibrating feeders. The housings are placed in a rotary turntable rotating 180 °. While the Mitsubishi RV-4FR robot takes the gasket with a nut and screw them into the multiports, the operator completes the second fixture. Turntables are located on two sides of the station and can be used simultaneously depending on production needs. The ASG SD2500-50FX screwdriver is equipped with a specially designed tool for picking and tightening nuts with gasket.
Automatic assemlby of adapters
The second station is equipped with vibrating feeders and an automatic system of applying O-rings to the adapter and o-ring lubrication. The adapter is lifted by a positioning socket into a gripper connected to the Festo pendulum drive. Than the adapter is inverted.
The operator’s task is to supplement the components for vibrating feeders in accordance with the messages on the HMI panel.
Ergonomic production line
Work on the line is sedentary. The station has been adapted to the related safety requirements. The stations are equipped with Keyence safety curtains. Process control is easier due to HMI (Human-Machine Interface) operator panels, located at station 1.
Panels allow you to start or stop line operation, directly control line elements in manual mode, and display information about errors and warnings. You can also access error logs and user logins from the HMI level. The processes are supported by the Balluff vision system.
