This unit was designed for field testing, lab testing, and calibration of mobile air samplers. Automated test protocols are supported by multiple challenge chambers with remotely actuated butterfly valves and HEPA pre-filters. Multiple production units were built in Mitech’s prototype shop.
This electronic chip production tooling module includes a bayonet mount with over-center latch. It provides quick change-over while maintaining precision referencing of product to the tooling. The machine interface includes electrical and fluid connections with coded flagging for automatic tool identification and monitoring. A specially designed actuation system supports high speed tool motion while limiting accelerations on delicate electronic components and avoiding part ejection.
This custom designed machine uses standard sanding belts to accurately clean and true the ends of both straight and bent fiberglass pipe. Designed to be quickly adjusted, this machine can handle pipe sizes from 2-8 inches. Pneumatic controls and a dust containment system minimizes health and safety risks.
This device is designed to dispense high strength magnets used in the assembly of OEM automotive components. The Dispenser reliably separates individual magnets from a stack and presents them for ready access by the machine operator. The design virtually eliminates jamming and misfeeds common to the hardware it was designed to replace. A locking magazine supports material tracking and control requirements.
Designed a machine to fold flat, die-cut box blanks and dispense onto a multi-directional kitting line conveyor. Flat box blanks are loaded into the machine using wheeled magazines configurable for four box sizes. The box size is detected based on blank size and the folding mechanism automatically adjusted to match the box size. The design provides the ability to quickly change box sizes without requiring operator reconfiguration or adjustment by maintenance or set-up personnel.
This transport rack lift system with modified transport racks is used in an air-filled 1000 °F bake oven as part of an abrasive manufacturing process. This novel design provides a rugged, abrasive-dust-tolerant mechanism, while eliminating exposure of sensitive components to the high-temperature oxidizing environment. The project included design, fabrication, and installation in multiple bake ovens.
