Next, the wire sleeves were cut to length and placed in the tape-backed windows of the card stock. The mechanical system required great precision to leave space around the sleeve so it would not touch the window edges of the card stock.
The engineers at Aladdin Engineering & Manufacturing created a mechanical system that used the sophistication of electric servos, vision, and robots to be flexible and advanced enough to quickly change over from one product to the next with zero-tooling changeover. The system incorporated 21 Allen-Bradley servos, 4 vision guided Denso robots, and 7 Cognex cameras. Our mechanical system provided a significant increase in throughput compared to our client’s existing systems and exceeded expectations because of the flexibility and zero-tooling changeover time.
