FUNCTIONAL TEST STATION SUMMARY
The functional test fixture allows an operator to simply insert and remove a device – the rest of the test sequence is fully automated via a custom LabVIEW program which steps through a multi-button cycle test and a vision system 360-degree scan that can encompass mechanical/quality characteristics as well as operational characteristics (such as RPM, speed, shaft straightness, vibration, and more.) Downstream, the outcomes of the tests can be automatically logged and statistically analyzed to create Pass/Fail flags ultimately reducing operator error and mean time between devices.

TEAM:
Mechanical Engineers, Software/Control System Engineer, Electronics/Cabling Engineer, Machinist, Assembly technician

DESIGN TOOLS USED:
SolidWorks, LabVIEW

MARKET:
Medical Devices
