Sub Assembly Equipment
Sub assembly equipment can be designed for manual or robotic applications. The rugged simplicity of our design, combined with use of reliable components, assures problem free operation.
As production begins, your need for more sophisticated assembly fixtures increases and our ability to add complex mechanisms to simplify the process is limited only by your imagination. We offer the following optional equipment to meet your requirements.
- Swing Mechanisms – Fully Automatic, Semiautomatic, Vacuum Part Holding, Balanced for 1 Pound of Force, and Pull Tests
- Poka Yokes and PLC Controls
- Movable/Changeable Parts
Our method of designing a fixture with change pieces can sometimes dramatically reduce the number of connections that are needed for change-over. We utilize Common Vacuum Cups and Part-Presence Sensor locations and, frequently, we can switch to a new version using only the bolts that hold the inserts in place. Additionally, we are capable of programing the PLC to automatically update the program to sense changes assuring that the entire change was completed and to inspect for the correct set of options without any input from the operator.
Our guards allow safe operation during production but are easily removed for servicing of machinery. We offer guarding for fully robotic production or for safe operation by an individual operator. Our safety devices and interlocks are in compliance with all applicable regulations. Our use of a cable-style Emergency Stop Switch allows rapid access from any position near the machine.
The edge fold machine eliminates the need for extra trim to cover product edges. You simply provide the math data describing your fold and Covert will provide a fixture that delivers a smooth, finished look, automatically.
We can provide tooling using the material that satisfies your design and production requirements. Whether it is the flexibility of composite or the durability of aluminum, our skilled team of tooling designers and equipment technicians will build a fixture to meet your specifications.
Within the reinforced plastics world we have developed tools for our post modeling applications as well as molding applications. We provide a variety of systems for solving the requirements of your specific part of assembly. Our drilling, bonding, routing and process handling experience provide us the proper tools to address your application.
There are several unique fixtures that can be employed to augment and complete your production process.
- Heat Wave Press
- Hot Stamp/Air Bag Labeler
- Pinch Roller
- Bezel Crimpers
- Interlocked Screwdrivers
- Glue Gun Integration
- Optional Touch Screen Interface
- Ethernet/Internet Connectivity
- Heat Stake
- Ultrasonic Welding
As with any machinery – safety remains paramount. GWe place guards conveniently to maximize functionality and attractiveness. If a safety issue does occur, the guarding allows the operator to remain safe by preventing exposure to moving parts, while, concurrently, the parts can be captured until the appropriate operation is performed.
