Armature Arm Assembly Gauge
This article describes a gauge device that holds parts in an aligned position
on a pallet during transmission through a multi-station assembly line and also
during manual assembly.
The gauge of this disclosure eliminates a common but complex procedure of
assembly. Usually after placement of a magnet armature arm, a current
energizes the coil to hold the arm in place. Coils must stay energized until the
magnet is completely assembled. If the magnet is assembled on a fully
automatic assembly line, the assembly process and the line itself become much
more complicated. Not only must the armature arms placement stations supply
current to the coils, but the whole assembly line must be electrified for the
duration of the assembly process.
The armature arm assembly gauge disclosed herein is shown in perspective
view in Fig. 1. A shaft 1 is connected to head 2 with connecting pin 3. Two
locating pins 4 are provided for engagement with the magnet stator plate tooling
holes. Cavities A hold the armature arms, and cavities B provide clearance of
the screws of the stator plate subassembly.
Fig. 2 is an exploded perspective view showing the gauge positioned on top
of magnet stator plate 5 with the locating pins 4 in the stator place tooling holes
(not shown). The gauge remains in this position until eighteen armature arms 6,
hold down spring 7, and spring plate 8 are assembled and secured with screws 9. The assembled magnet is shown...
