HVAC I/O Mechanical Lock Machine

This customer came to Overton with a problem, looking for a solution. Their business had really grown and they were struggling to keep up with demand, a great problem to have, albeit a problem. Their manufacturing team was looking for a partner to develop a custom machine to be able to mechanically lock their bent tubing to a sheet metal tray. Not only did they need this machine, but they needed it to be able to do families of parts that consist of different materials and different numbers of tubes and locations. 

Overton built a vast part reciple system that integrated 12 individually controlled hydraluic valves that could be adjusted based on the material and part number being ran. This ability to adjust each mechanical lock station individually allowed for drastically reduced changeover times and less scrap. 

“The flexibility that was designed into this machine is going to help our manufacturing team meet our commitments. Without having Overton involved in this project, I don’t think that our production would have been able to keep our customers happy.”
