axis robotic grease dispensing machine.
manufacture of the overhead console of the Ford Falcon requires
that the hinges and catch of the sunglasses holder be lubricated
during assembly. The operational procedure specifies the accurate
placement of 3.5 ml of grease at five positions on the catch and
one each on the four hinge pintles.
operator inserts the base into the robot which applies the grease
to the catch section. The operator then fits the catch and
completes assembling the holder. When this is done, the assembly is
inserted into the robot which applies the grease to the hinge
pintles. The operator then mounts the completed sunglasses holder
in the console.
is programmed to detect the holder presented to it, compare this
with the position required by the dispensing programme, and having
done this it deposits the grease in the appropriate places. The
robot can do either catch or hinge dispense or both together. In
this way a continuous product flow is achieved.
is applied with EFD 740V-SS which ensures that the precise volume
is delivered to the exact position every time. The valves are
controlled by the ValvemateTM 7000 which provides for optimum
accuracy and reliability.
