    Solution of the Month: LCSV Vacuum Spindle for Long Reach Application

    Each month we feature a unique application design solution we've developed.  Sometimes it's a tailored solution for a complicated obstruction point or maybe it's a solution to reduce product quality issues.  This month we are featuring the LCSV Vacuum Spindle for Long Reach Applications.  This innovative solution will change the assembly game for manufacturers.  It's built to drive screws in deep part recesses that you used to have to drive by hand.  No more operator fatigue!   

    In a recent application, we used this long stroke vacuum spindle in conjunction with the C30 drive and ZEL feeders. This application is for an assembly that required 50 screws to be installed in various locations, some wide open and others recessed down a long sidewall of 200mm. The LCSV provided the solution to feed and drive all 50 screws utilizing a X-Y Cartesion robot, as a Z-axis was not required. The long analog depth sensor allowed for depth measurement reading of 256mm.  The C30s is designed to solve complex screwdriving applications, allowing you to count cycles, collect screw installation data of assembled parts along with on-board analysis tools to ensure quality and uptime.
