Glass Door Support Roller Automatic Assembly Machine

A manufacturer of consumer home products required a system for producing roller assemblies for their sliding glass door hardware kits. Creative Automation rose to the challenge, engineering a turnkey special purpose machine that automated both the product assembly and unloading processes.

The Challenge: Integrating Multiple Complex Assembly Operations

The door roller products required multiple complex assembly operations including the installation of the rollers, riveting, and custom hardware installation. The manufacturer also required a turnkey system with automatic unloading to further streamline production and minimize labor requirements.

The Solution: Turnkey Automated Assembly and Unloading

Creative Automation designed and manufactured a system that enabled an operator to place roller housings onto tooling mounted to a dial-type indexer. The system automatically installed rollers and rivets, along with an adjustment screw to complete the assembly. The finished part was automatically unloaded from the station tooling.
