Laser Printer Wheel Assembly Machine

Laser Printer Wheel Assembly Machine adapt automation

A cam operated, overhead tool plate indexer assembles thin star wheels onto each side of a plastic wheel hub. Custom feeding of the star wheels uses a magnetic separator to isolate them for loading.

This machine is fully automatic in its operation with a mechanical cam operated index table that is equipped with an overhead tool plate for synchronous operations.  The star wheels are fed with a unique system utilizing a gravity feed with magnet separation.   These thin wheels will not feed in a common feed system.  One star wheel is located in a nest on the index table, one hub pressed on and the second-star wheel on top of the hub.  The presence and proper installation are verified after each operation.
