ROBOTIC WORKSTATION FOR ASSEMBLY OF PLASTIC INSERTS INTO ALU WHEELS

 

BASIC CHARACTERISTICS

Thanks to its simple layout, the line can include one or two robotic arms. Using a state-of-the-art camera system for wheel orientation detection and its sophisticated co-operation with FANUC robotic arms, ALU wheels are flawlessly placed into automatic screwdriving stations where the plastic inserts are fixed.

The entire line system is powered by the TEMEX BlueLine conveyor system, adapted for greater endurance in automotive operations and dusty environments.

 

SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS

The equipment requires the presence of only one operator and the intuitive control software allows flexible line setup for use on all wheel types produced. Thanks to the robotic arms, the line achieves a very efficient cycle time of 8.5 s/wheel in a two-arm design and can be used in 24/7 working mode.
