This is 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. This system auto feeds heat shield bodies, insulation paper wraps, and coil springs that are auto assembled. All operations are 100% error-proofed with spring depth verification and gaging of a roll formed diameter as stamped in the bodies.
Good parts are counted and dropped into an auto box handling conveyor. Rejects are tracked, sorted, and dropped into a containment area.
42 parts per minute = 2520 pieces per hour (gross)
