In this application, a six-spindle robot linked to a vision system takes plastic housings of various geometries from bulk separation and moves them into position on a workpiece carrier for further processing.
In the production of high-end electronic car keys, the individual components are moved by vibratory conveyors and very compact stack storage with three robots, and joined on a round plate. All process steps and events are captured and visualized by Huf Tools production data acquisition and sent to on the network the line server for evaluation.
Automated Assembly Lines
This fully automated system is used for the manufacture of several different types of radio car key inserts. All palletizing cells [3 MB] include precision handling systems for assembly and joining.
The supply contained can be replenished at any time without interrupting automatic assembly of the key inserts on the line. Assembly takes place on workpiece carriers. Relevant information is written to the transponders on the workpiece carriers at each assembly station, so that the status is updated from assembly station to assembly station. If the data on a workpiece reads out as not OK, the fault or faults are categorized as reparable or irreparable. A control computer archives the line data and product test data.
Assembly line for car door locks with multiple components and number of variants with short cycle times. The line has 8 automated stations and 14 semiautomatic workstations with various functions, including parts supply, bolting, greasing, joining, riveting, mechanical and electrical function testing, and laser lettering.
Integration of Identification Systems for Conveyor Control
In complex conveyor systems the parameters for each product and production process can be stored for evaluation and analysis of product-specific test and measurement data.
To do this, conveyor systems are fitted with our identification system, which also provides conveyor control. There is a transponder on each product carrier to record data. Each station has a read/write unit and an antenna on the conveyor for writing data to the product carrier transponder.
