Hydraulic Suspension Component Assembly & Test #1
The challenge was to design a system that could safely assemble and test suspension components that weigh up to 4 tons each. In addition there were seven different sizes of the completed assembly.
The solution was a ten axes, servo operated machine that assembles the various components into the main housing and then rotates the assembly vertical for functional testing. In addition to the mechanical design, we also programmed all the servo axes.
