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.
