Five typical custom-designed and -built machines were produced. These machines perform one operation in the process of manufacturing dashboard electronic consoles for automobiles. A partially assembled dashboard unit is loaded into a fixture along with the required pointers for the guages (speedometer, tach, etc.). A robotic arm then picks each pointer individually and precisely installs into the dashboard unit. Each Pointer Set Stand is controlled by an A-B SLC-500 series PLC interfaced with an Adept Robot controller.
