CDS Manufacturing designed and built this semiautomatic system for installation of braze rings.
The operator loads parts into the low profile hopper. The hopper supplies parts to the feeder system. The number of parts in the system is automatically maintained. Braze rings in the proper orientation are fed to the end of the orientation track where an operator installs the ring by pressing on a tube at the assembly nest.
