Hole Driller – Mass Production

Mass Production – Hole Driller

This is our first paid gig with Evezor robotic arm and brought in enough to pay for over half an arm.

This job took a few days to put together and program 3 days to run and 300 total tubes drilled in the end.

 

Let’s start by seeing the production run

baskets of tubes drilled by evezor

This project was the reason I started designing evezor in the first place

After creating the the original hole driller I found myself very disappointed with the machine, not that it didn’t do a good job, but that it would only ever do one job. It could only ever drill holes in these tubes.

PCB Fabrication

EVEZOR ROBOTIC ARM PLACING SMD COMPONENTS ON A CIRCUIT BOARD

Evezor Will Mill PCBs and Place the Components

 

The traces were milled out with a 1mm endmill in a standard rotary tool.  The toolpaths for the traces were designed in Inkscape.

The smd components were 0603in size, picked with a vacuum gripper, then placed in the desired locations.

The solder paste was done by hand, but could have just as easily been done with evezor.  We have designs for a solder paste extruder but will be waiting until we come back to this project again in the future.

Glass Etching

Today we etched the letter U into glass

 

Our tool post, once again, was just a hunk of 2X4.  Then we used a hose clamp to secure the rotary tool to the tool post.

We used a diamond bit to do the glass etching and some lightly soapy water as coolant.
