Fully Automated Dye Penetrant Systems

Ramco AMK36 Automated FPI Line
This Ramco Fully Automatic Dye Penetrant System was designed for ceramic bearings. The bearings are processed in batches of 100 (shown below) in a fully automated system using Ramco transport/oscillating elevators as the basic building block for each of the stages. The bearings are processed through penetrant application, excess penetrant removal and hot air knife dryer as per specification. Exclusive Ramco features include Multiple Rollover, MultiPort Oscillation, RamTough Automation, and MultiZone Spray. Ramco can design manual or fully automated systems to accommodate water soluble or oil based penetrant processes.
The operator loads a four tray carrier at the beginning of the line and unloads at the end of the line ready for inspection. A multi zone zero pressure power conveyor is used to pre-stage and feed carriers into the automation system. The entire process automated using RamTough Automation. Each stage is a standard modular Ramco MK Series Immersion System that has been modified to fit the application. Automatic opening and closing covers are included on each stage. The bearings are immersed in a water soluble dye penetrant and allowed to drain under the closed cover for a preset cycle time.
This Fully Automatic Dye Penetrant System incorporates a number of key Ramco attributes. Transport/oscillating elevators are the basic building blocks for each of the stages. Exclusive Ramco features include MultipleRollover, MultiPort Oscillation, RamTough Automation, and MultiZone Spray.
