CDS Manufacturing designed and built this semi-automatic assembly system.
This system allows two assemblies to be processed at the same time by one or two operators. The operator(s) load one insert and one bracket on to each nest and then begin the machine cycle with the corresponding touch buttons. Part present sensors confirm that the components are all present and then the parts are automatically assembled. A discrete punch mark is applied to each assembly for traceability. Completed assemblies exit the system to the rear of the machine.
