Due to safety concerns for the switch assembler, IAC was contracted to design and build a solenoid assembly machine. A main component of this machine is a powerful earth magnet. Serious injury could occur should the magnet come in contact or close proximity to another magnet, the solenoid housing, or other metals during assembly.
The assembly fixture is constructed completely of non-ferrous metals. Sensors for each component insure proper orientation for correct assembly.
Operator safety was paramount during the design process. IAC also knew that production output could be increased as well. Once in production, the machine was able to produce in 1 hour 45minutes what previously took 8 hours to complete.
