MARS Automation Inc

Single Assembly

This is one of MARS Automation Inc’s first customer applications. The customer wanted an automated machine which would close a cap prior to being placed on a plastic lemon. The parts are oriented using a vibratory feeder and then lifted by a pneumatically controlled arm which in turn places the part on a cam which closes the cap. The unload operation is conducted by an air exhaust which launches the part up through a catcher (shaped like a candy cane) which in turn drains into a box.
