Screw Feeding and Torquing Automation

L o a d i n g

Compass designed and built a custom system to pick and torque four different screw types into an antenna assembly for a defense contractor. 

An operator loads an assembly into place using a cart.  The screws are bowl fed and picked by a Fanuc M20 robot.  Machine vision is used to determine if the correct assembly is present.
The system then torques thousands of screws.  The assembly is re-positioned as needed for the robot to drive the remaining screws.   Compass integrated a Desoutter driver.  The one Desoutter driver allowed us to torque screws from a .05 newton meter range up to several inch pounds. The system is fully integrated into the customer's SCADA system for statistical process control.
