Cartridge Weighing, Measuring Machine - CWMM
A complete in-line four stage production line designed to “Load, Weigh and Measure the round" and present for final manual verification” LIVE 9mm cartridges.
The process starts with loading cartridges onto an indexing conveyor using 2 high capacity vibratory bowls. Cartridges are then indexed to the weighing station which checks the individual weights insuring the correct charge is present or rejects the part if it is not.
Passed cartridges are then indexed into the “True Form” verification station where they are individually inserted into gauges and checked for length and form. The final process involves off loading onto a inspection line where the manual inspected.
Live munitions require intrinsic safe design.
