Air Bag Component Deburr and Inspection Station
Air Bag Component Deburr and Inspection Station

The Challenge

A manufacturer of air bag components needed to deburr parts made from a screw machine operation. The deburring process required the clean removal of a parting mark and the chamfering of a drilled hole. The production required the processing of 45 parts/minute.

The Solution

Creative Automation designed and fabricated a turret indexing, second op machining system to perform the above operation. Components were automatically fed and loaded onto the machines turret and after the operations were complete, the parts were automatically offloaded. The operators' task was to maintain a sufficient supply of components in the supply hopper, which held enough parts to operate the system for 2 hours.
