The custom solution, which simplifies the production of automobile steering
assemblies, provides three main functions: The first function involves the
assembly of a ball nut. During this process, the bearing is assembled to the
ball nut, Loctite is dispensed to the threads, and the spanner nut is assembled
and secured using a DC driver. The second function involves assembling the ball
nut to a rack. This process includes gauging the rack and ball nut, selecting
ball bearings and loading them into the assembly, where the two components are
mated and checked for lash. The third function involves complete noise,
vibration and functional testing of the final assembled part. Upon successful
testing, the assembly is coated with an anti-rusting agent.

Overall, the Evana systems offer complete component traceability, process data
collection of torque values, ball selections, part measurements, lash readings,
performance data and test readings. All of this data will be tagged to the
serial number of the final part and saved in a database for future
accessibility. Delivery of the fourth system, which is going to a manufacturing
facility in Anting, China, is scheduled for June 2014.

“Evana is proud to be the automation partner for this repeat customer, who
already has three of these Evana systems in production,” said Randy Wire,
General Manager of Evana Automation Specialists. “The systems offer efficient
and effective solutions to complex requirements, all while expanding Evana’s
global reach.”

Evana utilizes diverse technologies to specialize in motion control, robotics
integration and system architecture by linking production equipment, material
handling systems, data collection, networking, as well as computer software and
hardware into flexible, unified technology. Test equipment can be integrated

for manufacturers all over the world in industries like automotive, aerospace,
defense, healthcare and alternative energy.
