Abstract

There is shown and described an improved design which facilitates automated assembly. The magnet yoke 2 is stamped from flat stock and includes structural elements to permit the armature 4 to rotate thereabout. The armature design includes indentations 6 for engaging the studs 8 on the magnet yoke. For assembly, the armature 4 is held 180ยป from its working position by a robotic manipulator (not shown), and is slid onto yoke 2. Armature 4 is then rotated clockwise to its final position, as shown in Fig. 2. During rotation of the armature 4, a ramp surface 10 is engaged. Surface 6 serves as an up-stop for armature 4 in operation.
