• Gas Range Valve Assembly Test System

Gas Range Valve Assembly and Test System

This equipment utilizes a Merrill Engineering & Integration standard reciprocating platen (RP) machine that is driven from a combination of “C” face and Geneva cams to deliver a synchronous operation, and a power and free conveyor system for final product testing. This system auto feeds and assembles ten product pieces utilizing one hand-load operator with each completed valve passing four test operations as follows: low, medium, and high flow test with valve shut leak test.

Good parts are counted and dropped into a auto box handling conveyor. Rejects are tracked, sorted, and dropped into a fault designated containment area.

Production rate
