Edson designs and manufactures innovative machines used for case packaging of goods, food, pharmaceuticals, and other products into corrugated boxes. Machine steps include automatic feeding of the boxes, folding, adding the product, and closing the box top. Market pressures require client ability to swiftly change over to package a new product. Edson must also be able to rapid customize design and correctly manufacture for a potential new client machine sale. Towards this goal the project will create 3D solid part models and intelligent subassembly hierarchies. Mating points on parts will be identified geometric tolerancing analysis, and best assembly sequences will be documented. Modern Design for Manufactuability and Assembly (DFMA) methods, including Poka-Yoke, ergonomics, etc. will be emphasized. The success of the effort will be measured by internal video capture during actual assembly, time and error reduction, client feedback, etc.
