Q1:Can we use the Westech’s Parts Aligner using pallets that we currently own for inspection?

A1:
In majority of the cases, parts are aligned on customized pallets designed specifically for the customers, and transfer the parts onto the customer’s pallets. There are several main factors that must be considered to minimize alignment time and noise and maximize yield. The weight of the pallet also affects the performance of the Parts Aligner.

Reason One: The geometry of the individual cavities plays are significant role in the alignment process. The Parts aligner’s performance is extremely sensitive, even the difference of 0.1 millimeter of the cavity opening or the minor change of the angles and sizes of the chamfers could reduce efficiency.

Reason Two: The pallets that the customers wish to use for alignment are most likely not suitable for the parts aligner due to the materials. Both the parts and the pallets may become damaged due to the repetitive angular vibration. The weight of the pallets can also affect the Parts Aligner; if the customer’s pallets are too heavy it may exceed the machine’s capabilities.

Westech often uses Bakelite material for the pallet because it absorbs impact of the parts during alignment, is ideal for precision machining and it is resistant to wear.

We are always open to discuss whether your pallets are compatible to the Parts Aligner. There are cases where the customer’s pallets may be used for alignment.

Q2:We have parts we would like to have aligned. What would be the first step?

A2:
If you send a sample of the parts along with the dimensions you would like to have aligned, we will make a sample pallet for the alignment test. The approximate cost will be 30,000 Yen to 50, 000 Yen. The price will differ accordingly to the complexity of the parts.

This test will allow us to determine the most effective parts orientation, minimum pitch to maximize capacity, duration of the alignment and the alignment yield.

---Parts Alignment Test Procedure---

Please contact local distributors or you may fill out the Request Form.

If alignment test is necessary, we will request sample parts, parts specifications, and the desired configuration of the parts on the pallet.

The Geometrical cavity is determined by an experienced designer using data accumulated over decades. The CAD data is then transferred to the Machining Center where the test pallets (100x100mm) are fabricated with extreme precision. Finally an engineer will install the test pallet onto the Parts Aligner to select the optimum conditions to obtain the maximum yield.

The full result of the test pallet will be reported to the customers by our sales person.
