Automation of assembly tasks and processes

System Layout Stand alone

Example

Purpose

spot welding of gaskets in two different variants and with different layers

Process steps

  • Loading metal sheets in the magazines by hand
  • Translating metal sheets into the welding mounts of the turn table
  • Welding of Gaskets with 3 points
  • Automatic stacking of good welded parts into blisters
  • Automatic sorting of bad parts into separated bad part box

Fully Automated Production System

1 Magazines for metal sheets
2 Transfer handling metal sheets (3 times)
3 Metal sheet test – quantity and orientation (3 times)
4 Turn table with eight welding mounts
5 Welding unit (3-way)
6 Transfer handling gaskets – good parts
7 Transfer handling gaskets – bad parts
8 Conveyor system with trays – good parts
9 Protective housing

Cell Layout Transfer line

Example

Assembly line for Activated carbon filter valves

Purpose

spot welding of gaskets in two different variants and with different layers

Process steps

  • Provision of the various components by hand
  • Loading the workpiece carriers by hand
  • Translating loaded workpiece carriers through all stations (No. 2 – 15)
    by a workpiece carrier transfer system
    The various components will automatically assembeld, checked, marked and cleaned.
  • Packaging of the good parts by hand
