Trigger & Bottle Assembly System

/, Robotic Integration/Trigger & Bottle Assembly System

Midwest Engineered Systems Designed a fully automated bottle assembly system to assemble a part every 5 seconds or less.

The Challenge

  • Automatically convey filled bottles to assemble station (multiple sizes)
  • Automatically sort and orient triggers for assembly (multiple types)
  • Automatically torque triggers to bottles within specifications
  • Ultrasonically weld triggers to bottles

the Solution

  • The following methods, components and technologies were implemented and integrated to provide a comprehensive solution:
    • Trigger hopper and flighted conveyor system control trigger introduction
    • Dynamic trigger picking and orientation using robotics and vision
    • Dynamic trigger placing using robotics
    • Full dynamic bottle sortation using Linmot linear actuators
    • Bottle transportation using custom plastic chain type conveyor
    • Bottle control using dual servo feed-screw control
    • Trigger closure torque control using custom servo torque head

Impact to the Customer

  • Part rate of 1 part assembled every 5 seconds or less
  • Parts are automatically assembled
  • All trigger closure torque’s are verified and tracked
  • All parts are 100% verified
  • Bad parts are automatically identified and segregated
