The ATS Consists of a variety of testing stations. The system integrates a SCARA style robot to move balls from station to station. Each test can be custom written to allow for different routines for many different styles of testing

24-Ball Tray

The ATS auto-removes balls from the tray and maintains the balls orientation throughout the test. The system can also test the ball at multiple points along the balls perimeter, all relative to the position the ball is placed on the tray. Each ball has an identity corresponding to tray position.

ADC Size and Compression

This station utilizes the Gen4 Compression Tester to generate size and compression data. A separate feed/rotate device is attached to the system to allow for multi-point testing. Each result is tied to its actual position on the ball.

Weight

The SWC System includes an interface with the Ohaus Adventurer Pro precision balance Model AV212. The balance capacity is 210g, Readability and Repeatbility of 0.01g.

Standard Features

  • GEN IV Compression System
  • SCARA Robot
  • Ohaus Adventurer Pro Balance
  • Interlocked Safety Chamber
  • Mechlab Pro Software

Multi-Point Testing

Record compression and size along multiple points of the ball’s perimeter using servo-controlled indexing

Optional Features

Ball Temperature: The system measures the balls temperature at the time of test. This temperature is stored with the test data and can be attached to the barcode or numerical lot number. This is especially important in QC atmospheres.

Printing Station: This station includes an ink jet style printer, capable of printing at speeds up to 866 fpm. Data printed on the ball can be numerical (i.e. xxxxxxxx-xx,) or a variety of different style barcodes. A barcode reader can also be added, so that balls can be retested, or used as calibration balls between several labs.

Size Station: The system has the ability to add an advanced laser micrometer that the robot rotates the ball through. This gives the most accurate size measurements, as well as allows for faster size measurements and more size data.

Multiple-Level Ball Trays:An additional level of the 24-Ball tray in order to increase your sample size for any number of tests.

Ball-Sorting:A feature where the robot will place the balls in a separate tray for online testing.
