About Assembly Automation:
In the manufacturing domain, the assembly includes amalgamating all the essential and required parts for a given product. It helps swiftness, performing examinations and functional testing, tagging & labelling, distinguishing good assemblies from bad, and packaging and/or organizing them for final use.
Assembly is different as compared to the manufacturing methods like grinding, machining and welding in that most of these procedures consist only a few principles and possibly only one. Many of these non-assembly operations cannot be executed without the help of the equipment; hence the development of automated techniques has been obligatory rather than optional. The assembly, on the other hand, may include one device, many of fastening techniques like riveting, welding, screw-driving and adhesive submission. Automatic parts selection, probing, gaging, functional test, labelling and packaging are also included.
A manufacturing or production process that breaks the processes of a product into steps that are accomplished in a well-defined sequence. Assembly lines are the very frequently used technique in the mass manufacturing of products. They have the power to decrease the cost of labor since unskilled workers would be easily skilled to execute specific tasks. Rather than employ a skilled designer to integrate an entire piece of furniture or engine of the vehicle, companies would appoint a worker to only add a bolt to a machine or a leg to a stool.
A Tail Lamp:
In the automotive industry, a tail or lamp is the lighting system used in a vehicle, essentially places on the front and back of the vehicle. The lamp is not a single product but a pair of two (left and right) connected to the forward-facing and rear part of the automobile. The lights or lamps possess different functions to be used uniquely.
The turn lights, or signal lights, are together called the tail lamp assembly. Due to the regulatory standards, the color is normally yellow that indicate the right or left turning of the vehicle. Many times, they are also used in the times of emergency. The reverse lights are also included in the tail lamp assembly to reflect whether the vehicle is backing up. The reverse lights are lit automatically when the vehicle is put on to reverse shift. Such lights often have the strongest lighting in the tail lamp assembly but lesser than compared to the head lights. The park light in the tail lamp assembly indicates the driver seat behind for a presence of another vehicle whenever it is the foggy, dark or rainy weather. This is also best used as a broken light. Also, the park light normally has the highest portion in the assembly which turns on as the driver slams the brakes.
The Assembly Procedure for a Tail Lamp:
Process 1: Take out the old tail light. Initially, undo the mounting screws on the exterior, if you find any. Open the trunk or any rear door or opening on the vehicle to reach the tail light’s back. The wiring harness must be detached from the assembly from its back. Once the wiring harness is taken out, you can now undo the mounting nuts or screws, whatever catalyst is used. With least screws or nuts holding it in place, push out the assembly from the back.
Process 2: Crosscheck if the tail light assembly just removed is the same as the new one. See if they have the same design, constituents, and catalysts to confirm proper fixings.
Process 3: Fit the new assembly into the tail light pocket. Once it’s fitted into place, secure it with the screws or nuts. Tighten them appropriately. You can now plug in the wiring harness that you detached earlier.
Process 4: Examine the new assembly by switching them on. If the result is negative, then some adjustments must be done to the newly connected tail light equipment.
Process 5: Fix back cover, trim, or element that was detached to reach the tail light assembly.
Appreciatively, this procedure can be performed by any driver unless he or she creates the right environment, obtains the proper tail light lens, the precise tools, and follows a few easy steps. Since the problem requires immediate attention, drivers might need to have knowledge of the environment. Therefore, the assembly automation becomes necessary in the automotive industry because of so many reasons.
