This semi-automatic work station is designed for the assembly of intake modules.
The 4-channel screwdriver system is positioned manually by a worker. Then the automatic, 3-stage, synchronized screw driving process is started (1x torque tightening, 2x angular tightening operations). After finishing the screw driving process, the station retracts automatically into returned position. Subsequent screw driving operations are performed using a manual screwdriver, which is integrated in the screwdriver control as an additional tool.
For process monitoring and traceability all actual bolt joint data, the scanned serial number, type and date/time are sent via TCP/IP-Protocol to a central control system. If the data can not be transmitted by technical reasons, it is automatically stored temporarily on the screwdriver control system.
