MESH is exhibiting a MAC and MiniMAC at FABTECH in Atlanta, November 6-8!

Come check us out at the HBS Stud Welding Partners booth(C13468) and the Kember America booth (C11352).

Lean Cells for Cam Phaser Assembly and Test

Project to supply three lean cell (semiautomatic) that allow the operator to assemble cam phasers. Machines would insert/press filter screens, pins, collars, springs and other components to precise dimensions and forces. 5 ton presses used for the main process. Poke Yoke systems in place to prevent the wrong tooling to be used. Force and displacement sensors used to monitor and document actual press force and distance as per end user specifications. Other sensors used to detect that holes were machined in the correct place.

Machine Performance:

  • Capacity Requirement:      30 seconds / piece
  • Expected Utilization Rate:  24 hours / 7 days
  • Allowable Scrap Rate < 1%
  • Equipment Availability:  > 90%
