Design and manufacture of several standard quick change-out models with auto-centring zero point clamping system. Custom part handling solution, integrated with the positioner for the safe change-out of all dedicated assembly tools. The turnkey solution (handler + quick change-out interface) provides productivity gains and improves ergonomics of working conditions for assembly line operators.
Requirement / Handling of large parts.The aircraft assembly line requires large parts to be handled for riveting. In order to reduce the production series change-out time, the SMED rapid change-out solution must accelerate manufacturing rotation and minimise machinery down-time. In order to provide maximum production flexibility, the handling system can perform several specific part pick-ups. Lastly, sensors are included to manage information storage.
Solution / Standard change-out interface unit.
- A standard zero point quick change-out interface and counter-plate in various part pick-up formats,
- Rapid and safe change-out of dedicated tools,
- Clamped / unclamped position management sensors,
- A unique solution combining specialised part pick-up and an ergonomic handling unit.
