Plastic-Component Assembly Cell - Medical Industry
Service Detail from DEPRAG, Inc.
The feed-system loads each part fixture with two (2) plastic components. The rotary table indexes the part fixtures to the Plasma pretreatment station. There, the plastic surface is pretreated (surface flaming to increase components surface energy for improved ink adhesion) by the use of a Plasma flash. Thereafter, the components are indexed underneath the pad-printer and imprinted.
On the next station, the imprinted components are dried using an infrared drying system. The camera system checks if the imprint is O.K. or NOT O.K. The unload-station automatically pushes the O.K. parts down a ramp into packaging containers and the NOT O.K. parts into a reject container.
