How to Find a Injection Moulding in Onaway ?

Whether the fabricator’s shop is large or small, the Ironworker is the backbone. The Ironworker isn’t a single machine; it is five machines united into an engineering wonder. It has much more versatility than most people would imagine. The five working sections that are involved in the make-up of this machine are a punch, a section shear, a bar shear, a plate shear, and a coper-notcher.

A number of the cheaper ironworkers are constructed to employ a fulcrum where the ram shakes back and forth, building the punch go into the succumb at a small angle. This normally leads to the erosion of the punch and succumb on the front rims. The higher quality machines incorporate a ram which moves in a direct vertical line and employs modifiable gibs and guidebooks to guarantee a constant traveling path.

When you look for a End of Arm Tooling (EOAT)  that develop a Injection Moulding in Onaway, looks for experience and not only pricing.

That devotes more life to the tooling, and allows the punch to penetrate the die right in the middle in order to capitalize on the machine’s total tonnage.

When looking for a design house that designs a Injection Moulding in Onaway  don’t look just in Michigan , other States also have great providers.

This job is among one of my favorites. It’s because the entire project was mine. I started by going out to their facility and seeing their inefficiencies. One cell that they were very excited to revamp was their Silica dump cell. I was able to come up with the initial concept, quote the project for materials and labor, and then do the engineering myself. I did, not only the mechanical design and detailing, but also the electrical and pneumatic schematics. I felt in charge of the whole thing- high risk, but high reward.

A HUGE 6 axis robot (ok, not that huge, I’ve used bigger) but an R2000 robot picks up these paper bags filled with Silica. The end-of-arm-tooling (EOAT) used vacuum suction to hold onto the bag.

It bring it over to a hopper, where a smaller robot uses a knife to cut the bags. The larger robot then flips it’s tooling to dump the Silica into a hopper. Seems pretty simple and for the most part it was. However, the Silica is so densely packed into the bags that even when the bags were cut wide open, the Silica wouldn’t dump. To help the Silica loosen and fall, we stick needles into the bag and blow air through these probes which moves the Silica powder around. We then (for a lack of engineering terms) flap the bag to further empty the Silica. It may sound tedious, but any powder or residue left in the bag is money wasted for the company.

An SMC slide cylinder pushed the air probes through the paper bag, and the fittings attached to the other side provided air to go through to the holes in the probe.

Another part of the project was to add a tool changer to the smaller robot. It was originally just equipped with the knife, but by adding a tool changer with a “Silica break tool” the robot was able to then go into the hopper and break up large clumps of Silica helping the contents of the hopper drain. Imagine a giant potato smasher. (Which is in fact what we ended up often calling the tool.)

I had a lot of fun working with my machinist and builder on this project. I did everything I could to help them succeed, but also knew they had my back on this as well. I understand that that dynamic not all that common in the work place, so I really appreciated it. The install is happening currently and now the programmer is up to bat. The EOAT has a camera and laser to locate the bag. The camera locates the XY location of the bag and the laser the Z (height) location. I can’t wait for the tooling to be fully power, programmed, and running. I really think the customer will be happy with this addition.

End Of Arm Tooling Parts

Sprinklers may get bent or broken by accident. Most of them are made from hard materials that do not get damaged easily but accidents do happen. Broken Arm Spring can be repaired by, pulling the fulcrum pin with a diagonal or side cutting pilers. You should press the pin in the body and it should come out when pulled.

Please go on performing as we suggest, hold the arm in your hand such that the cup part of the spoon facing you and spoon end of arm pointed to your right, now feed end of spring into the hole which is on your right then on through the hole on the left from the back side. Now look end of spring pointing towards you. Let's bend over end near about half with the help pf needle needle node pilers.

The length of spring is normally more than required. Hold arm with spoon end pointing toward you looking down on top of arm. Now cut off the tag end of the spring at the center line of the arm. Now install arm in the body. With the help of hammer drive fulcrum pin into lower hole. Pull arm around as far as it will go, away from nozzle and feed upper end of spring into the hole that is at a distance from the nozzle. Now feed through the other hole so it extends about "1/8" and bend this extended spring end over sharply to clinch. Rain Bird distributors and dealers provide Arm weights for some sprinklers model in order to maintain proper spring tension.
