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.

Precision Wire Insertion Machine

Precision Wire Insertion Machine 1

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.

Automated Glass Bottle Loading Cell

Machine

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.

Fin Former Machine

DSC03837

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.

High-Speed, 3-Part Home Fragrance Assembly Cell

Home-Fragrance-Assembly-Machine

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.

Medical Port Device Assembly

Epson-SCARA-robot

While the parts were being designed, SDC worked with the product designers and the individual component manufacturers to ensure that the final parts could be assembled and packaged.

Automated Medical Device Assembly Machine

Fanuc-Robot-Assembly

SDC designed and built an automated robotic machine that produces assemblies containing extruded medical tubing. Key components of the assembly machine include tube feeding…
