Electrical Connector Production

Project Scope:

Electrical Connector Production

An industry leader in electrical components needed a machine to optimize the assembly of two kinds of jack modules.


Automatic tool changer with two jack grippers

Two custom part feeding systems with escapement

Foil label applicator

Allen-Bradley PLC & HMI

The Solution:

The SDC team developed an automated assembly machine with the capability to accommodate two styles of parts. A FANUC SCARA robot was integrated with two jack grippers that could automatically change tooling as needed.

The machine vision system directs the robot to move the jack to the exact label coordinates on the feeding pad and precisely applies the label to the jack. The label position and color are then measured and verified. The part is moved to a reject or accept bin based on the results of the machine vision readings.

Machine Rate: 30 parts per minute
