Automatic front-end assembly

Task:

Fully automatic bolting and assembly of the front end on continuous flow production line.

Solution:

A 6-axis robot to which a special-sized gripper has been adapted to accommodate the front end is used in this automation process.

With this gripper, the robot takes the front end from the pickup position and then bolts it to the body by means of electric screw spindles, which are also integrated on the robot gripper.

The movement of the robot is synchronized with the conveyor technology of the vehicle.

In order to detect the exact position of the body before the joining process, a 3D sensor system is additionally installed on the gripper, which measures the body and transmits the correction data to the robot.

In addition, a sequential test of the vehicle and the frontend is performed before assembly.

System benefits:

Significant increase in productivity by avoidance of downtime and high availability of the system.
