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.
