Automatic seat rail bolting

After the first milestones, automatic wheel assembly and automatic frontend assembly in continuous flow operation, IBG expands its technology leadership to final vehicle assembly.

The first automatic seat rail bolting in continuous flow operation denotes another technological novelty.

A six-axis robot and a gripper with six bolting systems fixes the seat rails mounted in the interior from below, in order to then bolt them to the body by means of electric screw spindles, which are 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 bolting process, a sensor system is additionally installed on the gripper, which measures the body and transmits the correction data to the robot.

In addition, the sequence check of the vehicle is carried out before assembly in order to know the position and number of screws of the vehicle.

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.
