Needle assembly machine

Needle assembly machine

Our customer, an international surgical equipment manufacturer required a semi-automated system to assemble various plastic and rubber mouldings onto a stainless steel needle.

The special purpose machine was required to take the manufacturing process on a stage from solely hand-assembled operation but not to a fully automatic machine. All parts are manually loaded to fixtures on the machine bed and hinged and interlocked guarding protects the operator while simple but efficient pneumatics push the components firmly into place. All contact parts are in stainless steel as befits a machine used in a medical manufacturing environment.
