Our references in the field of automotive
Axle assembly – An example for the successful implementation of industry 4.0.
In a long-standing cooperation with a big automotive supplier and the resulting experience we built a pre-assembly plant for the production of components of axles for commercial vehicles. The plant is able to cover a wide range of parts without the need to replace type-specific change parts.
Assembly plant for brake systems
The plant was built up in modules with standard cells so that it can extended for follow-up processes. Due to the modular structure, high synergies can be obtained with the construction as well as the mechanical manufacturing.
Gear Assembly – An example for a flexible and complex assembly line with a one-piece flow system
An example for a flexible plant in the matter of measurement technology and assembly technology is the realization of a gear pre-assembly line for big automotive suppliers. The plant stands out by the use of flexible measurement technology (3D coordinate measurement machine) in combination with special stations for static and dynamic measurements.
Vibration absorber assembly
Special features of that plant are the ability to supply and isolate coil springs, to combine coil spring packages and check them (“spring rate”) and to install the coil spring packages in the vibration absorber using a scara robot including riveting processes.
Highly complex assembly plant for gear components
Workers equip the components at manual workplaces and supply them to the assembly cell. Robots take over the transfer of the components from processing station to processing station.
Assembly line for a hydraulic pump
The hydraulic pump is mounted in different steps, mostly semi-automatically. The manual activity predominantly consists of material handling, placement operations and scanning operations. The plant includes processes like joining, riveting, screwing, controlling tasks via vision-systems and finally laser labelling of a DMC.
