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.
The SDC team created an in-line measuring system to measure the diameter of each part using a vertical laser micrometer after the parts are cleaned and correctly oriented on the conveyor.
This machine uses camera-based vision systems to locate the end of the wire and the position of the holes in the housing, then a robot uses offset coordinates based on vision results to make a precision move to insert the wires.
SDC designed and built a semi-automated leak test machine using upgraded technology to test the seal between a pipe nipple and its tubing.
The experts at SDC designed and built an automated machine that uses a custom conveyor system to load boxes with glass bottles into the cell. As the bottles are moved into the cell, a complex machine vision system accurately identifies the position of the bottles.
This large cell automatically creates large sheets of fiberglass through a process of feeding individual sheets of fiberglass, one at a time, coating them with a layer of resin, and then stacking them on top of each other to move into a large press.
To increase the machine’s speed, a servo-driven ball screw was used to replace the air-over-oil cylinder. Previously, this cylinder proved to be a bottleneck when pushing the machine to its limits.
The automated assembly machine takes a cotton fragrance wick and inserts it into a plastic holder. A small nail is then inserted to hold the assembly together. The indexing table fixture consists of a precision bore to hold the plastic sleeve, as the remainder of the assembly is built in the sleeve.
SDC designed and built a testing system that can hold bulk quantities of 3” x 3” glass panels and automatically process them to measure…
SDC designed and developed an automated assembly machine that consisted of two servo indexing chassis’, surrounded by multiple SDC Flex Feeders and Vibratory Bowl…
