Our customer, a product manufacturer and supplier the medical device industry, required a new automated assembly system to accommodate their sales growth and order fulfilment.
High speed, around-the-clock production.
On consultation with the customer, our engineering team learned of a need for a system that could support 1000 ppm at any given time, for around-the-clock production. Sewtec’s proposed solution incorporated a linear motor transport system to manipulate the many products necessary to the assembly, part feeders for separation and orienteering of the various components, and our standard Servo controlled units for assembly and test.
In operation, the system uses multilane technology to accommodate the many components needed per product, and runs at 50 cycles per minute with each step processing 40 products at a time. Installed within an ISO8 clean room, our system was validated by Sewtec engineers up to the IQ phase.
