From design to delivery of automatic test station for checking operation for the SHIMANO bicycle hub gearbox series production line.
The project was carried out in collaboration with AUTOCONT CONTROL SYSTEMS.
In one of the in-process inspections, the test station checks the height of inclined latches on the hub gearbox shaft. Latches incline in a different sequence and configuration for a particular gear. The height of the latches is measured by electronic sensors and automatically compared with the production procedure data. After the operator manually inserts the product into the test station, the full cycle of measurement and testing in different positions is carried out automatically.
MITSUBISHI PLC is used to control the test station.
