Assembly Automation Case Studies: Robot Cell for Automated Assembly and Screw Insertion

Client: Mobile Phone Manufacturer
Part: Mobile Phone
Machine supplied: Robot Cell for Automated Assembly and Screw Insertion
Overview: This system was designed and manufactured in order to give the customer the ability to automatically assemble parts within their production environment. TQC developed this system alongside the client to allow them to produce assemblies quickly and accurately.

Key features:

This single robot cell was designed to automate the assembly of a small electrical handset. An operator loads the bottom casing (containing the PCB) and top casing into the assembly jig section of the machine, which then automatically closes, clipping the two parts of the handset together.

The SCARA robot picks four screws from the component bowl feeder and drives them into place in the handset, one at a time. This cell produces a complete handset every 12 seconds.

TQC supplied a number of these robots cells to the customers.
