Evana Automation to Provide Custom Assembly and Test Systems for Tier 1 Automotive Supplier

Evana Automation Specialists, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading Systems Integrator and builder of custom, automated assembly and test systems, recently received a multi-year contract from a Tier 1 automotive supplier to provide six custom assembly and test systems that will simplify the production of automobile steering assemblies.

The six custom systems will provide three main functions: The first function involves the assembly of a ball nut. During this process, the bearing is assembled to the ball nut, Loctite is dispensed to the threads, and the spanner nut is assembled and secured using a DC driver. The second function involves assembling the ball nut to a rack. This process includes gauging the rack and ball nut, selecting ball bearings and loading them into the assembly, where the two components are mated and checked for lash. The third function involves complete noise, vibration and functional testing of the final assembled part. Upon successful testing, the assembly is coated with an anti-rusting agent.

Overall, the six Evana systems will offer complete component traceability, process data collection of torque values, ball selections, part measurements, lash readings, performance data and test readings. All of this data will be tagged to the serial number of the final part and saved in a database for future accessibility. Delivery of these six systems is scheduled for later this year and 2014 to locations in the United States, China and Poland.

“Evana is proud to be selected as the automation partner for this repeat customer, who already has three of these Evana systems in place,” said Randy Wire, General Manager of Evana Automation Specialists. “The six new systems offer efficient and effective solutions to complex requirements, all while expanding Evana’s global reach.”

Evana utilizes diverse technologies to specialize in motion control, robotics integration and system architecture by linking production equipment, material handling systems, data collection, networking, as well as computer software and hardware into flexible, unified technology. Test equipment can be integrated into assembly systems, stand alone systems for automatic testing, or manual test benches. Overall, Evana’s custom assembly and test solutions improve efficiency for manufacturers all over the world in industries like automotive, aerospace, defense, healthcare and alternative energy.
