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.
In addition further assembly processes are fusion processes and screw driving processes. All Stations are chained with a transfer system. A RFID-system transports the quality data through the whole assembly process and transmits them to a control technology system.
Scan processes are performed at all manual workplaces to ensure the affiliation respectively the batch traceability of all components.
