The challenge

The production of an electronic product required a sequence of detailed assembly operations, each demanding precise product alignments, and fixture-based workflows. The variability in tasks - from SSD insertion and thermal padding to end-of-line labelling - presented a significant challenge that necessitated seamless collaboration between human and machine.

The solution

Fixtures for Electronics Product Assembly

Three specialized assembly fixtures were designed to constant workflows tailored to each stage of the product assembly. Each fixture has integrated electrical screwdrivers, vision systems, and 2D code scanning, along with mask locking, signal lights, and step-by-step assembly commands, to reduce operator errors.
