Insertion head, pneumatic or servo motor, comprises of tool set, which could be changed to another one according to the application.
There are several types of insertion heads according to the pin types: end-to-end, right angle, U-band (bandolier) or terminals.
Insertion accuracy is highly stable and equals ±0,05 mm (CPK > 1.68). When using servomotor, insertion depth is controlled by encoder.
Insertion technique involves the use of precut round or square wire with acceptable section from 0,3 to 1,5 mm (with servo-drive head) or 1 mm (with pneumatic head).
The pin is fixed in the insertion head one step before cutting position, which decreases the tolerance of pin length and thus provides cutting and insertion precision.
Pins unreeling systems
There are various pin feeding systems according to each pin type: end-to-end pins floor-mount unreeler, carrier pins unreeler for bandolier pins, terminal unreeler.
Frame & cabinet
Machine and all its components can be integrated into floor mount frame with PLC and HMI units for operation control.
Lighting & safety beams
Safety beams can be installed on the frame to detect foreign object presence and to stop the machine. This feature as well as work area lighting guarantees operator’s safety.
Vibrating feeder for connectors
Option for in-bulk connectors feeding. A bulk supply hopper automatically doses parts into the vibratory bowl and inline vibrating conveyor.
Alignment supports for components
Work table can be equipped with alignment supports. Components are mount onto this support to simplify its positioning.
Automatic motorized positioning
Pininsert 2100 could be equipped with motorized table. In this case its movement to the work area (X axis) and/or from one insertion position to another (Y axis) is performed automatically with a step motor.
Components position laser control
Components position laser control detects wrong positioning, sends an error message on the screen and doesn’t let the machine work till the component is placed correctly.
Low/high definition camera
Camera with integrated logics for pin insertion height control. Choice of definition depends on the dimensions of the components.
Pin presence laser control
Pin presence laser control lets the machine differ empty slots and already inserted pins. New pins are inserted into the empty slots only and other positions are skipped.
Insertion force control
System controls each insertion and compares it to the reference values of insertion force. In case of deviation machine stops automatically or gives an alarm sound.
Force data export to Excel
System allows to download all the insertion data in Excel format.
Parts indicated by laser or insertion force sensor as defective are to be thrown into special container. Until these parts are detected inside of the container, the machine wouldn’t continue operation.
