Turnkey systems

Automated manufacturing systems enable the precise mechanical machining of workpieces for the conventional powertrain. The focus here is to reduce system auxiliary process times and optimize system availability.

The production design involves CNC machines working in parallel in standardized manufacturing cells. Each machine in the cell performs specific machining steps. Engine blocks, cylinder heads or gearbox housings are machined in the area for cubic parts using gear cutting, honing, drilling and thread cutting to give them the desired shapes and dimensions. Rotational and grinding processes are used when machining cylindrical workpieces like crank shafts or camshafts.

The number of machines in a cell depends on the cycle time and number of machining operations. Additional machines can be added easily. Using adapter plates means new types of workpieces can be integrated without costly retrofitting work. Conveyor belts generally facilitate material flow between the cells.

The linear gantry allows unimpeded access to the machines while sliding hatch covers ensure safe access even in Automatic Mode. Maintenance work can therefore be performed without interrupting production and keeps more systems available. Workpieces can be unloaded and loaded for quality assurance using SPC spaces.
