Muffler Assembly Systems
Criteria for this electric vertical muffler assembly system:
- For mufflers
of length up to 36". (see Details below)
- Capable of
range of 'stuffing' depths - (see Details below)
- Operate in
a clean, quiet, and safe manner - (inherent in selection of electric
system, not hydraulic)
- Target cycle
time of six to eight seconds (on average) (see Details, Operations
- Service /
support is timely with minimum of spare parts; in house resource
capable of basic troubleshooting & servicing. (software & components
compatible with that of the Aristo ERL-001, Electric Ridgelock
of the system design are:
- Sturdy steel
tubular / plate frame with approximate 4-foot x 4-foot footprint,
eleven feet tall.
- Power is
provided by a servomotor. An action jack screw device with 36"
of travel develops up to 12,000 lbf (equivalent of 4" bore cylinder
with 1,200 psi hydraulic unit).
- CTC screen
used as MMI interface for operator (same as that for the Aristo
- The guide
mechanism consists of a carriage running on 45mm STAR Linear motion
components for accuracy and correct load distribution. The end
of the screw is attached directly to the carriage on the centerline
of the tool holder.
operation of the system:
of forming operation is determined by the value entered in the
- Great flexibility
in sequencing capabilities reside in using this type of program.
- The feed
rate is approximately 2 inches per second. The position repeatability
is within 0.010 inch.
- To ensure
safety in operation, the machine will have a 'first stage' motion
to a 'preset - part specific position' proximity switch allowing
the operator to hold the muffler body until the top tooling guide
lip, approximately 0.25 inch long with stabilize the part. After
this, the operator will require both hands on palm buttons to
finish the actual work cycle.
