Basket Assembly Machine
A conveyor feeds the empty baskets to a dead track where they are picked and placed 2 at a time into a double nest on a 16 position indexed dial plate. A generant disk is then bowl fed and placed into the bottom of each basket. A series of conveyors feed the propellant wafers from a wafer press in another room to the machine where they are split into two lanes and the required number of wafers is automatically stacked. Two of the stacks of wafers are then transferred into the two baskets in the index table.
