Evana Automation Specialists, a systems integrator and builder of custom, automated assembly and test systems in Evansville, Ind., has shipped two multistation lean manufacturing systems to a Tier 1 automotive supplier of electronic components that will assemble and test next-generation lane departure warning systems.
The assembly systems comprise several semiautomatic workstations that assemble circuit boards and lenses to holders, focus the lenses, place the assemblies into housings, label units, and test and pack out completed products. The units have complete serialization and traceability throughout the entire assembly process. Driver data, test values, and press forces are captured and assigned in a database to the part serial number. The cells are designed with quick-change tooling to allow the addition of future products.
