The flexible, semi-automated solution will assemble and test two different automobile power transfer units with 100% traceability of key assembly and test data. Each station operates independently, but is synched to the master database via bar codes so that non-conforming assemblies are not allowed to pass. Assembly steps include bearing and seal presses, drive and fastener installation, snap ring installations, shim selection and verification, oil fill, leak test, run-in, as well as noise/vibration/harmonics testing.

"This innovative system provides a flexible, low-cost solution for producing quality PTU products," said Randy Wire, general manager of Evana Automation Specialists. "Two different models, with major variants, will be built on this line with virtually no changeover."

Evana, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI), utilizes diverse technologies to specialize in motion control, robotics integration, welding 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, as well as manufacturers of commercial and consumer products.
