Automotive Sensor Weld and Assembly

This turnkey system performs performs automated assembly on a sensor for use in the automotive industry.   A series of operations are completed on a rotary dial index as the system  processes and assembles precision components.

Components are automatically fed from a magazine into a rotary dial which is designed with two sets of custom-designed fixtures, for assembling three different families of parts.

Once placed on the dial, the parts are positioned and ultrasonically welded.  The welded assembly is then robotically transferred to a linear system for metal trim removal and photo-sensing for quality inspection.  A SCARA robot transfers final parts onto trays for conveyor packout.
