Yorkshire based Datek Systems approached HJC Design to assist them in developing an automated assembly machine to build and test an electronic airbag module for the automotive industry.
Design For Assembly
Developed in conjunction with a global car manufacturer, this automated assembly testing system produces 2 million quality assured plastic airbag modules a year.
3D CAD Engineering
HJC Design engineered the entire assembly using Solidworks 3D CAD software, and produced a suite of technical drawings to BS8888 for final manufacture.
The automated machine utilises 16 individual stations located around a central indexing dial plate to assemble, test and inspect the 2 types of airbag module component parts.
Laser and proximity sensors are used precisely to monitor the system to ensure quality and prevent damage to the external surfaces of the module.
Electronic testing, label application, bar code tracking and automatic visual inspection are all computerised within the innovative design to meet the rigorous standards expected by the automotive industry.
