Control Handle Inspection Station, Model 1104:

This station was developed to inspect the control handle, seen in the gallery below. Before the machine releases the assembly, it verifies the presence of the rubber stop button, confirms the spring is installed and functional, checks for the proper insertion of the handle pivot pin, and makes sure the "E-Clip" retainer is installed properly. The use of an encoder strip enables the PLC to monitor the position of the end of the pivot pin, and confirm that it is oriented correctly, and the "E-Clip" is installed. The pin inspection tool end is designed with an insert to confirm the "E-Clip" is seated in the groove properly.
