This ball valve rod assembly can handle the assembly of dozens of different product codes.
Different product combinations can be made according to:
Large numbers of combinations necessarily require rapid retooling systems to speed up the changeover from one product to another, replacing as few components as possible and zero adjustment.
The machine can work in two configurations:
In 100% automatic mode, the machine covers a high percentage of the article range, producing 80% of the total rod volume.
In this configuration the machine can work unmanned. This allows a single operator to manage several automations and related feeding systems in total autonomy.
Products with a smaller volume, or which would have had a large impact on the investment and complexity of the vibratory feeding system, are loaded manually by the operator.
The ball valve rod assembly automation manages the unloading of parts in both modes. This allows the right oring to be checked before unloading.
This machine is also very easy to manage, maintain and has a reduced footprint with its total footprint of 4.5 square metres.
Camas has also produced the same type of automation, with the appropriate modifications, for the assembly of internal orings in valve bodies.
