CDS Manufacturing designed and built this indexing dial machine. This system automatically assembles lenses to camera faces using heat staking equipment.
The operator loads a camera face and lenses onto the assembly nest at station one. The operator presses the palm buttons. As the camera face and lenses cycle through the three assembly stations, the heat staking equipment assembles each of the lenses to the camera face. When the completed assembly reaches station one, the operator removes the assembly from the nest.
