USB Connector Assembly|Production Machine
USB connector assembly machine, in full-custom design, engineering, and manufacturing to provide an automation solution for USB connector manufacturers thus to reduce the manpower investment in production and automate the production line.
USB Connector assembly machine provide one-stop solution to solve material loading and feeding, sub-assembly, final assembly and final inspection.
Terminal Loading & Feeding
To achieve an excellent assembly automation, mostly the feeding and loading method must be selected according to the nature of material and packing type that to determine the proper loading and feeding system;
Plastic Core loading
Plastic core in bulk is designed to be loaded by full-custom made vibratory feeder bowl to feed the plastic core one by one;
A continuous loading and feeding movement can ensure the plastic cord enter into processing station or assembly station independently.
Subassembly (Terminal & Plastic Core Assembly& Terminal Bending)
A sub-assembly mechanism will perform movements includes inserting the terminal into plastic cores, bending the terminal and cut terminal to finish a semi-finished product.
Metal housing Loading & Feeding
Metal housing, generally, can be loaded and fed through coil feeder or vibratory feeder bowl in accordance with the material packing types.
A Final Assembly Station will assembly all of the semi-finished product as well as other component and form a final product.
According to customer’s testing demand to ensure the quality assembled by our assembly machine, our engineering team can integrate following testing system into this USB connector assembly machine.
Conductivity Test ,Hi-pot Test ,Matching Test
Based on the testing result, this USB jack assembly machine can sort the NG products from OK products.
Final Product Unloading
A final unloading system will unload the product into plastic pallet or a bin to collect all of products.
Assembly Automation Theory:
The Aligned Parts Assembly System (APAS)has the potential to revolutionize assembly operations in which injection molded parts are used. APAS uses the same logical concept that was invented many years ago to improve efficiencies in the electronics industry. That concept is the use of belts to carry and dispense parts into a subsequent assembly operation. This is the same idea used to feed bullets into machine guns.
APAS captures and retains the natural alignment and orientation of the parts as it is molded. No special orientation or manipulation operation (manual or robotic) is needed. APAS is natural and simple, parts are simply captured by a moving belt as they are molded and then transported to the next assembly operation where the belt feeds the parts reliably and efficiently.
