Automated assembly solution will simplify the process of manufacturing steering gear sub-assemblies

Evansville, Indiana – Evana Automation Specialists, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading Systems Integrator and builder of custom, automated assembly and test systems, recently received a contract from a Tier 1 automotive supplier to provide a multi-cell assembly system to simplify the process of manufacturing steering gear sub-assemblies.

The system will consist of five lean assembly cells that automatically feed components to stations where the sector shafts are assembled to the side cover, piston end caps are torqued into place, valve housings are assembled to the worm rack, and the gear balls are installed. The system has complete component traceability, including data collection of torque values, ball selections and running torque. All items are tagged to the serial number of the part and saved in a database for future accessibility. The system is scheduled for delivery in February 2014.

“This is the second system that Evana will provide to this facility,” said Randy Wire, General Manager of Evana Automation Specialists. “The customer knows that they can count on Evana to delivery an efficient solution to meet their objectives.”

Evana utilizes diverse technologies to specialize in motion control, robotics integration and system architecture by linking production equipment, material handling systems, data collection, networking, as well as computer hardware and software into flexible, unified technology. Test equipment can be integrated into assembly systems, stand alone systems for automatic testing, or manual test benches. Overall, Evana’s custom assembly and test solutions improve efficiency for manufacturers all over the world in industries like automotive, aerospace, defense, healthcare, alternative energy, and mining, as well as commercial and consumer products.
