A connector assembly manufacturer required a system to automatically feed and install contacts into a connector block.
Creative Automation designed and manufactured a floor standing system for automatically orientation, feeding and installing contacts. Oriented contacts were fed through a track guidance system to an installation station. An operator places a contact block onto the systems carriage. Once the start button is pressed, the block is automatically positioned to receive contacts. The contact population process is automatic and once all the contacts have been installed, the carriage returns to its starting position for the operator to remove the completed assembly.
