Mini Skillet Line
Customer: Automotive Assembly Plant
Application: Mini Skillet system for Instrument Panel assembly line.
Issue: The instrument panel mini skillet line is a highly automated assembly system that incorporates Automated Guided Vehicles and Robotic handling of parts.
The skillets are considered tooling and are required to be precisely located in order to correctly interface with the automation. Material and debris on the floor could impact the locating of the tools as they moved through the manufacturing process.
Solution: For consistency in locating the tool, Caster Concepts designed a guide wheel that would precisely engage the assembly track and assure proper location of the tooling throughout the assembly process.
Track Brush wipers were incorporated into the Toe Guards to minimize the impact of foreign debris or objects interfering with the travel or location of the tool.
