Workstation Assembly

Workstation Assembly machines | Poka-Yoke tooling from APL

Workstation assembly machines (assembly benches) are a cost-effective solution for complex products produced in small quantities. Custom-engineered products such as machine tools, industrial equipment make use of assembly bench to perform the assembly work on the product.

APL have extensive experience designing and building manual or semi-automatic assembly systems with single workstation. APL design and build custom-tailored workstations to suit customer’s individual requirements. Poka-Yoke tooling is commonly incorporated into the system to help workers be ‘right first time’, enhancing the quality and overall output of the process.

  • Lower costs of quality control
  • Increased production flexibility
  • Reduced inspection time
  • Increased safety
  • Increased customer satisfaction
  • Elimination of set-up errors and improved quality
  • Decreased set-up time with associated reduction in production time and improved productivity

Rotary Assembly

Automated Rotary Assembly Systems from APL

Rotary indexers are a very popular platform for automated assembly and testing applications. Assembly operations performed on rotary indexers include pick and place, dispensing, printing, parts feeding, riveting, screwdriving, welding, etc.

Robotics, Vision Inspection and testing can also be incorporated into rotary indexing systems. APL have years of experience designing and building rotary assembly and testing systems for various applications across a number of industry sectors.

In-Line Assembly

Automated Assembly Line Machine from APL

In-Line Assembly – A series of automatic workstations located along and in-line transfer system.

Indexing Conveyors (Pallet transfer systems) – suitable for all industries: mechanical, manufacturing, assembling, packaging, and every genre of application: medical, cosmetic, electronic, and many more. APL Indexing conveyors combine excellent accuracy, high speed, smooth movement, high load capacity, versatile positioning, with custom lengths. Available in “carousel” or “over-under” type.

Walking Beams – A high speed container transfer System based on the walking beam principle which has high performance and provides stable and fast transfer where in-line transfer systems are not suitable.

APL excel at designing and developing custom assembly automation machine and assembly line automation solutions to meet your specifications.
