Lens Casting Production Cell

The SDC team designed and built a casting production cell. To accommodate needed components, our team mounted a FANUC six-axis robot to the ceiling.

Automated Hose Leak Tester Image 1

Automated Hose Leak Testing

An in-line processing machine was designed and built by SDC with two leak testing and unload stations on either side of the machine.

3D Bin Picking Case Study 2

3D Bin Picking System

A 3D bin picking system was created using a loading system with a custom three-axis servo-driven cartesian robot. Tooled with magnetic grippers, the system picks parts off a cart and places them onto a belt conveyor.

Conduit Clamp Automation

Automated Conduit Clamp Assembly

An assembly work cell consisting of one central automated assembly machine was created to optimize the manufacturing process and increase quality with production.

Wire Forming and Assembly Machine Overview 2

Wire Inserting and Forming Assembly Machine

SDC designed and built an indexing dial assembly and test machine to manufacture a secondary bobbin assembly. This system was built on the SDChassis machine platform and provided a pre-engineered, smooth-running and cam-driven machine platform.

Semi-Automated Valve Assembly 2

Semi-Automated Gas Valve Assembly

The SDC team built a custom semi-automated assembly machine. To accommodate several part sizes, a split plate fixture providing the drive torque was designed for a quick change-out with different sized plates stored below the operating area.

Continuous Motion Packing System

Within this system, we designed and built several fully automated continuous motion systems which apply a powder coating to both sides of a tape product, feed and prepare containers for the tape, load the tape into the containers and seal the containers with a lid.
