Combination of machines and equipment in automated complexes

Example of an application of the combination of machines in brake disk manufacture

Machinery LinkingComplete machinery interconnection, starting with a semi-product and ending with a finished machined piece, has been implemented for a production line with vertical lathes.

An extra-flexible solution, including NC-controlled machine loading mechanisms and adjustable rotary units, had to be developed for a universal range of brake disk parts for passenger cars.

In order to meet the confined space conditions in the manufacturing shop and to save hall area costs, workpiece feeding and distribution by means of elevators and elevated lines have been implemented.

Fields of application:
  • Series production
  • Machine loading and unloading
  • Automation in hall spaces / production line combination
  • Elevated transports
Workpieces:
  • Individual gearbox and brake components
  • Individual axles, complete shafts
  • Individual set components
  • Individual engine components
Various types of drives:
  • Unit power plants with and without frequency converter
  • Pneumatic cylinders
  • Hydraulic cylinders for special requirements
Properties:
  • Robust
  • Nearly maintenance-free
  • Wear-resistant
  • Suitable for areas with chip-forming mechanical production
Advantages:
  • Varied range of transport systems
  • Comprehensive solution including handling
  • Minimum workpiece change times
  • Space planning and the coordination of machine tool interfaces
