Tape Cassette Guide Machine
This machine is part of a full automatic assembly line. It automatically assembles the two tape guides of a computer tape cassette. The machine picks up a the cassette base plate from a conveyor belt, places it on an index table where the individual tape guide parts are automatically fed in from feed bowls, placed on the base plates, then riveted. The machine will then pick up the finished assembly, rotate it to a different orientation and place it back on the conveyor belt. Numerous sensing devices for safety, machine continuation and part testing are incorporated in this system.
