- Needle Plungers are fed from feeder bowls to an escapement where a second robot picks and places it in to a laser gauge where the O.D. is measured and recorded again with micron precision.
- The system verifies the Needle Plunger O.D. and matches it within the programmed tolerances of a Fuel Injector Tip that has been measured.
- The second robot places the matching Needle Plunger in to the corresponding Fuel Injector Tip.
- Once the entire tray of tips has been fitted with Needle Plungers, the Forte Tray Stacker/De-Stacker transfers the tray to the re-stacking area where they are stacked and made ready to be manually removed.
