Assembly line for electric motors
Assembly line for electric motors

This machine solution is a semi-automated assembly line for the type-specific production of electric motors.

An operator partially loads and unloads the system, but critical processes are fully automated.

Due to different levels of automation, scalability from 55s to 28s cycle time is possible. The assembly system was designed and built with ergonomic guidelines in mind.

On the system are primarily joining processes, both by force and by path, including inductive heating of components. In addition, laser welding of electrical connections with fully integrated laser power feedback measurement can also be implemented. To enable complete traceability of production data, a VMDT (= Virtual Mobile Data Carrier) has been integrated.

Assembly system for gas generators
Assembly system for gas generators

This machine solution is for a fully automated assembly line for the production of gas generators for airbags.

The plant is partially loaded and unloaded by an operator, but critical processes are carried out fully automatically. The plant has an autonomy time of 120min. Through various degrees of automation, a cycle time of 6.9s per generator is possible.

The design and construction of the assembly system was carried out taking into account ergonomic guidelines, as well as compliance with guidelines for explosive substances. On the system are joining processes (force-monitored), welding processes (laser welding, capacitor discharge welding), various camera inspections, testing processes (leak testing), and setting processes.

The assembly data of each generator is stored in a master computer system, so that even the room temperature during assembly can be tracked.

Manufacturing system for fuel cells
Manufacturing system for fuel cells

In fuel cell production, efficient cycle times and absolute precision are crucial. To this end, our systems cover all process steps from component production and stack assembly to the finished fuel cell system.  

The modular, scalable design of the systems enables individual adaptation to the production capacity envisaged by the customer in each case. We are already working on machine solutions for fuel cell productionwith international teams of product and production specialists from renowned institutes and industrial partners.
