Abstract—The article deals with increasing production assembly of two types of electrical contacts. Currently, use of manual assembly is insufficient, since production increases up to twofold. The solution is to deploy SCARA robot with the task of not only individual parts inserted into the mounting nests, but the assembled contact subscribe afterwards. The article proposed two similar solutions, which vary by time the autonomous operation of 3 or 5 hours. The difference lies in the use of a larger pool of necessary components. Their storage and subsequent use is realized by means of vibratory conveyors
