Cycle Test Station
CYCLE TEST STATION SUMMARY
Designed with safety, repeatability, and flexibility in mind, the cycle testing fixture is a fully automated pneumatic system operated over MODBUS TCPIP. This modular fixture can accept multiple devices or device families simply by adapting and 3D printing modular device holders, button grips, and collar grips. As shown, the cycle fixture uses a linear air cylinder attached to a rack and pinion to cycle the medical device collar, and a rotary air cylinder to cycle the action-on/action-off button. Pipeline’s proprietary “SMC” (simple motion control) software easily allows users to edit, save, and load various sequences and keep track of vital information such as cycle time and safety status.
Mechanical Engineers, Software/Control System Engineer, Electronics/Cabling Engineer, Machinist, Assembly technician
