ATC Automation has more than four decades of experience providing automated assembly systems for consumer products manufacturers.

Recently, the integrator was called upon to design and build a fully automatic system to assemble a multicomponent residential electrical product. The high-speed system consists of two cam-based chassis. The subassembly of this product begins on an eight-station Weiss rotary assembly dial. The subassembly is then transported to a Stelron precision-link conveyor, where final assembly and test is completed. The system is integrated with a variety of parts feeders, intelligent screwdrivers, precision dispensing valves, and welding equipment. Quality checks are performed throughout the process using sensors and vision systems.

When the assembly is complete and all quality checks are verified, the assemblies are fed directly to a third-party packaging system. The assemblies are kitted and boxed by the packaging system. ATC supplied a palletizing system that uses a Fanuc robot to stack boxes onto a pallet.
