REACHING YOUR DESTINATION WITHOUT CONGESTION: INDIVIDUAL AGV TRANSPORT SYSTEMS WITH ACTIVE OR PASSIVE LOAD HANDLING DEVICES. WORKPIECES CAN BE MOUNTED DIRECTLY ON THE PLATFORMS OR TRANSPORTED BETWEEN THE INDIVIDUAL WORKPLACES.

SML, Genk, Belgium

Over 100 ek robotics transport robots of the vehicle type CUSTOM MOVE are in use at the automotive supplier SML for the assembly of engines and axles. Within seven months, the transport robotics specialist designed and manufactured customised assembly vehicles and put them into operation during a 3-week shutdown. The engines and axles were delivered to the car manufacturer's SOP without interrupting production and just in time.

The assembly vehicles with a SIEMENS PLC use inductive tracking with CPS in flow or stop-and-go assembly.

OEM, China

For flexible engine assembly, 130 ek robotics transport vehicles were designed, manufactured and commissioned on site at an automotive plant in China.

With the transport robots designed by ek robotics, the engines can be lifted, rotated and tilted as part of the assembly steps. This ensures particularly efficient and ergonomic working for the various assembly activities.

The customised assembly solution includes the integration of the ek robotics master control into the customer's PLC process control.
