This production line was specifically designed for a new production concept of assembling the rear axle transmission. A new line, strictly focused on added value, has been realized for the assembly process. The assembly line is designed in a flexible way, it can assemble 4 transmission sizes with automatic change over. The workpiece carrier circulation is realized using a low-floor transfer system. The cycle time is 58 seconds.
The assembly line requires 18 x 110 meters of floor space. The 18 automatic stations with 5 semi-automatic and 6 manual stations offer maximum flexibility. All press-in operations use electric spindles and are force/position monitored. At full capacity the assembly line requires 9 workers, operating multiple stations.
This concept significantly reduces the cycle times.
