Differential Case Automation

Industry: Automobile (farm equipment)

Material handled:
Differential case under machining and assembled machining

Activity to be mechanized/automation:
– machining of the differential case between side facing and boring (on side)
– haphazardly placed machines need to be connected with conveyors
– orientation and one at a time feeding of the components per machine
– assembly of left and right handed assemblies for assembled machining

Issues faced:
– different machines at different locations are sequential in operation
– components from machines to be conveyed without manual intervention
– wherever needed, orientation changing devices must be incorporated
– use of resources for component travel must be efficient
– selection of feeding one component at a time or as buffered
– assembly area of the components to be online with conveyors

Solution provided with equipment:
– idler roller split type conveyors with rigid frame & adjustability
– lifting/lowering units with oat (one at a time) units
– tilting with clamping units with oat units
– plc and advanced pneumatics based control elements

Benefits:
– flexibility in designing layouts for effective placement of large machines
– hassle free movement of components using free gravity
– overall usage of resources is at minimum
– maintenance friendly equipment design with least issues
– sequence of operations with standard operation procedures can be established and monitored
