Fully automated assembly line

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

WingShield Industries prides itself on its precision and efficiency. That’s why we have created the most up-to-date kit bagging assembly line in the Arduinoverse. Witness our factory floor:

OK, it’s really just a row of parts and a few hours of mindless grab-n-bag. But we dream big.

Wires everywhere

This project uses three Arduino boards and just as many sets of ScrewShields. It’s the Railographic Apparatus, or Rail-O-Graph, that Usman Muzaffar and I are creating to show at Maker Faire.

The ScrewShields have been a lifesaver getting this put together, and staying together.

Here’s one use for a ScrewShield: add a thumb-destroying Molex connector!


First order is bagged and tagged

The awesome dudes at the Maker Shed took a last-minute order (OK, way past the cutoff, actually) for a box of ScrewShield kits to sell in the Shed at Maker Faire. The kits are now bagged up, labeled and ready for shipping. Thanks Marc, Rob, and Dan!

Zillions of parts

This is an impressive amount of terminal blocks and stacky headers!

ScrewShield PCBs are in

We just got the PCBs for the ScrewShields in and they look bad to the bone. The logo design by Andrew H. Leman is spot on.

Next, we’ll write up the kit tutorial and start bagging them up for Maker Faire.
