My 3 cup rolling jig. It could be 3 of the same or 3 different patterns at once. What a time saver

    The nice thing about this is I have different holding fixtures so I can do 3 cups, jars, small vases, and pistols. It took awhile to design it for the different heads to work but I'm happy with it so far

    I have a few questions that may help you streamline the design and make it more production friendly. I design and build fixtures for new large production runs A few times a year. These are all things I take into consideration.

    Does the entire fixture then go into the rinser? Or are you removing the cups?
    If you're removing the cups, does the plug stay with the cups or the fixture?
    And do they have a quick-connect system that won't start to rust from the water and chemicals?
    Edit: I also forgot durability. Make sure the parts last enough to run thousands of parts. Rebuild on the fixtures can cut into your profits quickly.

    Finally, Remember to time yourself. A production dipper could easily be dipping two of those cups every 3 minutes or so. Make sure it's actually saving time or increasing consistency enough that it's worth it.

    @MidOhioHydrographics I use the system from paint to rinse. Everything is made from alum or stainless so no rust and haven't did a big time study yet but if i had 12 different patterns and only 4 times to wash over instead of 12 I would be saving time there for sure

    Sounds awesome! Remember you can put more than one pattern on the tank at a time hand dipping also.

    cool. like it. might you have shortened the shafts, and added a sliding divider so as to use less material?
  • DeviousDipsDeviousDips Posts: 676Member ✭✭✭
    @PanamaCityHydro yeah that was the test run to decide what all I could get away with to make it efficient

    That is very cool. Would be interested in something like that for sure.

    That's excellent! Great Job! I am trying to phase out cups but I would still be interested if you decide to sell them.
