E-Clips are used to...
...keep shaft held components in place.
To reliably automate the assembly of these E-Clips, we tooled this Mini-Feeder to get them to a robot.
Parts are stored in a 1/2 cubic foot bin and step-metered to a linear vibratory orientor.
A static mandrel gets oriented parts into a vertical stack where a coin changer escapement moves one at-a-time to a robotic pick point.
Under the right conditions E-Clips can be assembled without a robot.
As pictured, the feeder operated at 62Db (A) sound pressure at 15 pc/min rate.
A lexan enclosure was provided.
