Front Axle Testing Automation

Industry:
AUTOMOBILE (FARM EQUIPMENT)

Material handled:
FRONT AXLE ASSEMBLED

Activity to be mechanized/automation:
– AFTER ASSEMBLY OF THE FRONT AXLE WITH INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS, TRIAL RUN TESTING AT 3000rpm SPEED IS NECESSARY FOR ACCEPTANCE PARAMETERS OF AXLE
– SYSTEMATIC PERIOD TESTING OF EACH FRONT AXLE ASSEMBLY IS NEEDED PRIOR TO FINAL ASSEMBLY
– RPM TESTING TO BE DONE WITH FLEXIBLE PARAMETERS FOR DIFFERENT MODELS

Issues faced:
– TESTING CANNOT BE DONE WITHOUT THE NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURE OR MACHINE
– RPM TESTING EQUIPMENT MUST HAVE ADJUSTABLE POSITIONING TO MATCH AXLES
– TESTING PARAMETERS OF EACH TYPE OF AXLE MUST BE ADJUSTED FOR TESTING
– MIS-ALIGNMENTS IN THE CENTRE LINE SHAFTS OF TESTER AND AXLE NEED RESOLUTION

Solution provided with equipment:
– AXLE MOUNTING CUSTOMIZED TROLLEY FOR MANUAL/MECHANIZED MOVEMENT
– TROLLEY CLAMPING UNIT FOR TESTING FIXTURE ALIGNING
– TESTING FIXTURE WITH TEST MOTOR, COUPLINGS AND ADJUSTABLE POSITIONING
– VFD BASED CONTROL PANEL WITH POTENTIOMETERS AND NECESSARY SWITCHGEAR

Benefits:
– PLANNED ACTIVITY FLOW WITH TESTING FACILITY
– REDUCTION OF OPERATOR EFFORT FOR FIXING OF AXLE AND TESTING
– ADJUSTABLE SETTINGS FOR EASE OF RE-ENTRY OF NEXT TROLLEY ONE AFTER OTHER
– OVERALL SIMPLIFIED AUTOMATION FOR ENSURING SMOOTH TESTING OF THE AXLES.
