Ground Pin Weld Bend Machine
Bowl feeds headers through an inline track and escapes them into a dead nest from which they are advanced by a walking beam. Bowl feeds ground pins through an inline track and escapes them through the feed tube into a holder which positions the pins for welding then spot welds the ground pin to the header. Pins on the completed assembly are bent and then tested for correct length and pitch. Rejected assemblies are escaped through a tube into a reject bin. Good assemblies are offloaded by the walking beam through a 2 position chute into 1 of 2 good part bins. When the selected good part bin is full, the chute automatically positions to the other good part bin and the full bin is then manually replaced by an empty bin.
