Ear Plug Assembly System
Ear Plug Assembly System

The Challenge

A manufacturer of corded ear plugs was looking for a way to assembly and package corded ear plugs. The system needed to make a hole in the plug, apply glue, measure, cut and insert the cord into the hole, wind the cord up and insert into an automated packing system.

The Solution

Creative Automation designed and manufactured an automated system that burned a hole in the ear plug, deposited a predefined amount of adhesive, measured, cut and inserted the cord into the hole, coiled the cord up and placed the assembly into a vertical packager.
