Fully automatic production cell for the automotive industry

This fully automatic cell was recently installed in one of the biggest OEM automotive supply chain world manufacturers. It can receive and process with fast change time, rounds, squares, and rectangular tubes.

Tubes are fed in bundles and isolated, a unique eddy current probe detects the welding line, and the double gripper robot removes the bent part from the machine, provides the new blank tube, and downloads the bent part on the extracting conveyor.

This production cell will increase productivity as it can work 24/7. Besides, it incorporates state-of-the-art VLB 3D Software, ready for Industry 4.0.

After one of the most demanding periods in modern times, the automotive industry is reinventing, and we are an active part of that.
