The Design and Application of the Turnover Drum Tooling of PROTOS Cigarette Machine
It is difficult to disassembly and time-consuming when the turnover drum need to repair or maintenance due to the turnover drum is a complex structure and high precision parts in PROTOS cigarette machine and the original special tooling has some limitations. To solve this problem, a new type of turnover drum tooling is designed. The application results show that the new tooling is an effective solution to solve the turnover drum maintenance difficulties, disassembly time-consuming problem. The maintenance lead time reduce from 12 hours to 4 hours. It also ensures accuracy of parts after the dismantling of the turnover drum and eliminates the security risks that exist in the repair process.
