Fitting assembly system
Tube fittings for fluids and gasses are assembled with the Forte Fitting Assembly System.
Stacks of trays loaded with “T”, elbow or straight fitting bodies are loaded in to the cell.
The trays are destacked and loaded onto a rotary dial where they are presented to the load robot.
Empty trays are restacked for unload.
Fittings are picked by the unload robot and placed in to fitting specific change tooling fixtures mounted on an indexing conveyor.
Nuts and ferrules are fed by feeder bowls in to position where custom tooling installs the ferrules and threads the nut on the fitting and torqued to a controlled setting.
The system checks the assembled fitting to ensure proper threading and assembly.
The finished fittings are then unloaded to bins.
