Camozzi delivers pick and place precision for speaker assembly
Camozzi Automation’s C_Applications division has developed a highly efficient pick and place unit for use in a car speaker assembly line. The speaker assembly machine performs the task of loading and gluing a grill and felt pad onto a speaker housing unit, an intricate process that was previously carried out by hand, but prone to producing reject units.
The bespoke machine was designed from scratch by Camozzi’s technical applications manager Tim Lobley and comprises six different stations, each carrying out a separate task including placing the pads and grills on the bases, heating and curing the glue and applying controlled pressure to ensure a strong, neat seal is achieved. A camera tracks each stage of the process, before the completed units are transferred to the packing station, where a box label is automatically printed once 6 good units have been produced.
Lobley comments: “When this process was undertaken by hand it could not meet the volumes required and reject levels were high. Using our automated solution, the customer is achieving a much higher output and the quality of the end product has improved dramatically.”
