Circlip assembly

World’s first automatic circlip assembly system

Automated assembly for circlips presents a challenge to technical systems in many ways. Due to the different circlip diameters and the constantly varying position of the hole pattern, a reliable automatic assembly was previously not possible.

Thanks to the system developed by IBG, it is now possible to assemble circlips with different geometries process-reliable and precisely robot-controlled. The system offers numerous advantages for automated production:

  • Identification of the hole pattern by a camera system
  • Intelligent gripping by an adaptive gripper and servomotor-driven widening of the circlips
  • Controlled relaxation and sliding off of the circlips with position monitoring
  • Designed for internal and external circlips

The developed assembly system consequently increases the manufactured quality and the ergonomics during the production process to the same extent.

Optimisation of production processes in all sectors

Automation and Robotics as instruments for increasing the efficiency of industrial production processes are designed and developed by the IBG / Goeke Technology Group, under the guiding principle "Transformation of human genius into technical perfection". Technology solutions and high technology systems are designed for the individual requirements of our global clients and all sectors, from our main headquarters in Neuenrade, Dortmund.

Automotive solutions, robotics-based solutions and other technology systems from the IBG / Goeke Technology Group are best-in-the-class industry technologies. We achieve this top level in industrial technology through close interlinking of decades of experience as engineers with science and research. We ensure that our know-how in the automotive and robotics fields, as well as our technology service, benefits from optimisation of industrial processes, but without losing sight at the person at the centre of it all – learn more about our social engagement here.
