Key Ring Assembly Machine
The Worth Key Ring Assembly Machine provides a semi-automated solution for the assembly of parts to our lightweight line of key rings. The machine eliminates the repetitive wrist rotation required by manual assembly of key rings, which can be a contributing factor to wrist fatigue and carpel tunnel issues.
The cycle time is approximately 2 seconds per piece. With loading and unloading it allows for assembly of approximately 20 pieces per minute. The machine feeds rings from a vibratory feeder to an assembly station. The parts to be assembled (key fobs, tags, other rings, etc.) are hand placed on a custom fixture. When the machine is cycled, the key ring is opened and rotated onto the assembly items.
The Worth Key Ring Assembly Machine can be built to accommodate Worth Lightweight key rings size three and larger. The Worth Key Ring Assembly Machine requires 110-volt power and 90 psi air supply.

Model 9000 Split Ring Assembly Machine
The Worth Model 9000 Split Ring Assembly Machine is a fully automated self indexing device for attaching split rings to one or more independent components. The Model 9000 Assembly Machine substantially reduces operator training in assembling component parts, allowing users to become proficient in a very short period of time. It also eliminates fatigue and harmful rotary wrist movement often found to be a problem in manual operations.
Upon actuating a foot petal, rings are fed from a vibratory bowl to a transfer arm which relocates the ring between four rotating fingers. A sensor arm then locates the opening of the ring, indexing and opening it at the front of the machine. Parts may now be applied to the ring.
The assembly machine utilizes solid state proximity sensors to check ring position thereby eliminating mechanical switch adjustments and fatigue. Air cylinders are used for mechanical actuation to reduce heat, wear, and eliminate electrical shock hazards. All movements are controlled by a solid-state programmable computer.
