 FMS-204 - Shaft selection/ supply


In this fourth workstation, the shaft is assembled onto the workpiece coming from the previous station. There are two types of shafts depending on their material: aluminium and nylon. This increases the number of possible finished products, while also increasing the didactic capacities of the FMS-200.


The different operations undertaken in this station are distributed around an index plate. The operations are: shaft feeding, shaft presence detection, verifying shaft position, positioning the shaft in the correct orientation, material detection, removal of an incorrect shaft and finally the insertion of the shaft into the assembly.


The troubleshooting simulation system is included, which generates up to 16 different breakdowns to be diagnosed by the user.
