This complete testing system was designed and manufactured by Quality First Systems, Inc. personnel. This system production tests in-tank fuel pumps at a rate of 1200 pumps per hour. This testing system incorporated an asynchronous line, four (4) three station testing machines and four (4) Adept robots to load and unload parts from the test fixture.
This entire system was designed to Class 1, Group D, Division 2 rating. The pumps ran a fuel solvent in place of gasoline.
If a part failed a test, the robot automatically placed the pump in the appropriate reject bin. There were (4) reject bins which corresponded to four (4) tests. Machine controls were handled with an Allen-Bradley PLC-5/15.
Two (2) operators were required at the end of the line to unload the accepted parts from the pallet for pack-out.
