Power Steering Fluid Fill Adapters
We provide equipment for accurate and reliable filling of power steering fluid on the production line. Our system capabilities include fully automated power steering fluid fill adapters for hands-off operation, pressure and vacuum leak testing, audio/visual signals for operators (LED lights, alarms, stack lights), and full integration and data communication to the customer’s Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)
The operator starts by selecting a recipe – either by barcode scanner, MES, broadcast, or a push-button. The operator then places the fluid fill adapter tool onto the vehicle port. The automated adapter clamps to the port and proceeds with its automated programming to fill the reservoir.
Our power steering adapter tools can use either pressure filling or volumetric filling:
Step 1: Evac the vehicle for vacuum leak testing (optional)
Step 2: Fill the vehicle with the power steering fluid. Pressure leak test with the fluid
Step 3: Level Down to the target volume and detach the adapter tool
A volumetric fill bypasses the pressure testing stages and fills the vehicle with steering fluid to the desired fill line within +/- %5 accuracy.
All of our fluid fill adapter tools have automated clamping options and can be customized to meet unique customer requirements. We also offer adapter maintenance services to make sure your new or legacy adapters are always operating within system requirements.
