Automatic Food-Grade Lid Assembly Machine

Project Scope:

Automatic Food-Grade Lid Assembly Machine

This fully automated machine was custom designed and built by SDC to create food grade container lids.

The Solution:

Specially designed and built by SDC, this fully automated machine creates food grade container lid assemblies from base component parts utilizing the SDChassis. The SDChassis was a perfect platform for this machine since it required many of the built-in motions already included in the SDChassis.

The SDChassis

The SDChassis is a Steven Douglas Corporation proprietary, preengineered rotary dial automated machine platform. The base SDChassis provides a precision rotary indexing dial along with vertical actuating platens, that in turn can be used to provide a wide variety of common assembly motions, such as: pick-and-place, light press, probe/verify, sense, etc. The SDChassis is constructed of heavy structural steel and robust precision components. By taking advantage of this preengineered chassis with the ability to derive all these motions from one base, the SDChassis quickly becomes a very attractive value point when considering a custom, multi-part assembly or multi-step processing machine.
