Rotary table, Free pallet line
This assembly and testing line of auto sensor signed Camas, is fully automatic and of the latest generation. The production line is composed of 3 rotary tables interconnected by going-and-going belts and a total of 40 working stations, which allow the production of 1200 pieces per hour.
Some of the most relevant assembly applications present on this system are:
– Hot welding
– Palletising systems for delicate components (specifically plastic components loaded from blister packs)
– Printed circuit board unwinding system
– Integration of a co-moulding system
– Laser welding of the two body shells
Particular attention is paid to the handling of the components, as they are electronic components. For this reason their feeding is mostly done through palletizing systems and the gripping is done through grippers with suction cups.
In the second part, the assembly and testing plant for car sensor consists of a free pallet line, where the sensor, previously assembled, is programmed and immediately tested in its functionality (EoL test).
The sensor circuit programming software and the EoL test are entirely designed and manufactured by Camas.
The QR code marking is done through the use of several laser units. The QR code marked includes the serial number of the part to which all production data is uniquely associated. Through the tracking system of the components and the assembly and testing process, it is possible to retrieve all the production data of the single sensor, even in the after-sales phase.
The export of this data is completely interconnected with the company’s production system.
All operations are controlled by means of vision systems that verify the correctness of the components, correct assembly and final aesthetic performance.
Also in this case the programming of the vision systems is carried out entirely by Camas.
One of the successes of this complete automatic line for car sensor is the achievement of excellent production values (OEE), a result obtained through careful balancing and division of the various assembly phases first and then testing.
