Door Trim Assembly Machine
This door trim assembly machine was designed and built to be a semi-automated standalone machine to assist the operator in the assembly of the rear door trim panel. Part-specific aluminum nesting was used to locate the hard plastic trim piece. Multiple sonic horns attached to a pneumatically controlled upper platen used to attach the sound deadening pad to the door trim piece. This was a dedicated machine that was designed specifically for this particular part and did not include interchangeable tooling. A PLC and HMI were used to control the machine.
