On Reconfigurable Machines and Reconfigurable Assembling Machine for DC Connector Plug


Article Preview

Reconfigurable machines are essential components to implement a reconfigurable manufacturing system. This paper focuses on one of reconfigurable machines: reconfigurable assembling machine. A reconfigurable automatic assembling machine for DC connector plug is designed. It can be divided into the basal module and the changeable module. The same basal module with different changeable module can be assembled into different special assembling machines for DC connector plug with different shape, size or number of electrodes.
