Assembly and testing for vacuum cleaner handles

Required Process:

Assembly of the cable hook to the vacuum cleaner handle and different functionality tests of the vacuum cleaner handle. If a test is not OK, then the machine will not release the faulty part for the next process.

Step 1:
Manual loading of the pre-assembled telescope handle and a spring.
The slide switch on the handle for controlling the vacuum power is set to position 0.

Step 2:
The inserted handle is held with various clamping devices and a counter holder – that also verifies the grip's interior parts – in the machine. Are the ridges inside the handle grip positioned correctly and were there no assembly errors in any of the previous assembly processes?

Step 3:
The hand grip is attached with the handle tube.

Step 4:
A hydraulic cylinder moves the slide switch on the vacuum cleaner handle from position 0 (vacuum cleaner OFF) to position 3 (maximum vacuum power). Simultaneously a test is performed, whether the handle is positioned at a predefined tilt angle.

Step 5:
The pre-assembled cable hook must be attached to the handle. The required screws are automatically supplied by a vibratory feeder and tightened with a MINIMAT-C inline screwdriver spindle. The integrated depth control verifies the correct screw depth. At the same time a tensile test establishes whether the handle tube is attached securely and whether the grip is seated positively.

Step 6:
Cable hook is turned by 30 degrees

Step 7:
Embossing: Every module is furnished with a manufacturing identification number. That way the traceability within the quality management is possible and it is possible to recall the manufacturing status of the assembled telescopic handle.
