Tube bending and end forming equipment-maker AddisonMckee of Lebanon, Ohio, has been commissioned to manufacture entirely new and rebuilt Eagle equipment for a Michigan exhaust manufacturer to produce the muffler assembly for Chrysler's new C platform vehicle in the U.S.
The equipment features a lockseamer with a sheet destacker system and tool changer interfaced to a shell flanger and muffler internal baffle stuffer. The front-end muffler module is interfaced to a robot that removes a shell from the transfer system, loads it on a 50-ton press to produce the side entry hole and extrusion, and then returns it to the transfer system for stuffing.
The company also is completing the total rebuild of a horizontal spinner transfer, with all equipment scheduled to be delivered to Michigan to commence production in late autumn 2012.
