Decklid Ultrasonic Welding Machine

This machine completes nineteen different welds using servo-motion-controlled actuators. All clips to be welded onto the decklid are manually loaded into a nest. When the cycle-start button is pressed, the clamp extends into the pressing position. Five welds are going on simultaneously with the ultrasonic generator setup.

There are a total of fifteen parts with this assembly and each one is poka-yoked for presence prior to each weld cycle; this helps to keep bad parts from being shipped out during the production cycle. The HMI is set up to show each weld, the amount of time for the welding process, the amount of joules to complete, and if the weld was a pass or fail. Each actuator is controlled independently from the HMI and allows the operator to adjust for stroke distance and force.

Hinge Bezel Ultrasonic Welding Machine

This machine is designed to go through the center of the part and complete the welds on the hinge bezel in four places using one ultrasonic welding horn. This requires travel in the x, y, and z axes with a rotational movement for the horn alignment. Two different parts can be placed on this machine for the welding operation.

Each side is independently operated, allowing the operator to load or unload a part while the opposite side is in operation. Also, this machine incorporates an automatic gluer where the operator loads the parts and the machine completes the rest, adding the glue and placing the parts onto the glue in the correct position. The glue operation works simultaneously with the welding operation, completing both at the same time.

Deburring Machine

This automated stand-alone unit is designed to deburr a part automatically. The part is loaded manually and a cycle start button is pushed. A safety curtain drops down to shield the associate from any flying debris. Light curtains are also installed to keep associates from getting into the workspace during operation.

Control panel for the deburring machine. Mitsubishi PLC with (2) VFD drives to control the speed of the brush. The brush also reversed during cycle operation.

Sun Visor Inspection Machine

Poke-Yoke system to check for imperfections on sun visors. SAS fabricated One (1) left-hand and One (1) right-hand machine. This system consists of an upper and lower camera to detect: color, parts present, correct label, and label position. The system also includes an HMI to show pass/fail of each item that is being checked.

This stand-alone machine is completely mobile. The table is adjustable to work at an ergonomically correct height. The part is loaded manually and a cycle start button is pushed. Light curtains are installed to keep associates from getting into the workspace during operation.

Bend Tab Machine

This machine is designed to bend the tabs on the weather strip that is installed on the top of the interior door trim. The weather strip is manually loaded into the machine for installation onto the door. The Yellow Guard/Door is closed and the cycle start button is pushed to start the bending motion. Interlock switches are in place to keep the machine from operating if Guard/Door is open. These units (right- & left-hand) are fabricated with an overhead work light, adjustable inspection stand, and casters for portability.
