En bref :
  • Modification ZF island
  • Number of project hours: 325 hours
  • 4 technicians

CLIENT EXPECTATION

The automotive supplier chose to invest in two new robotic islands which would be added to its existing manufacturing line pulleys. With this investment, it hoped to increase productivity and relieve the drudgery of its operators. In fact, the first island sends the pulley to the forming machine, then the second island receives it at the exit.

The aims of the project were therefore clear:

  • Install two robotic islands in addition to those already existing
  • Update the forming machine’s electric cabinet
  • Integrate a new conveyor system

DV GROUP SOLUTION

To reach these objectives, we suggested that our client:

  • Integrate two robots from the LR Mate FANUC range for the loading and unloading of the forming machine.
  • Create a customised pallet conveyor system to evacuate the pulleys as they exit the forming machine.
  • Replace the forming machine’s defective cables.
