Control Systems & Automation

SPOKO Integrators Ltd. provided an Automated Screw Loading Machine based on an operator placing a tray onto the machine and initiating a cycle to begin loading screws. Once the cycle was completed the operator removes the tray loaded with screws for further processing. The screw dispenser included a custom bowl feeder, vibrating beam, loading mechanism and tooling for locating 400 screws into the tray at approx. 2 minute cycle time. Screws that did not load into the tray (overflow) have been recycled back to the bowl feeder for the next dispensing cycle.

The System handled screw size #6, #8 and #10. The System was safe guarded and was controlled via a Human Machine Interface (HMI) programmed for ease of use by the operator.
