Endmontage – Alles im Griff
Endmontage – Alles im Griff

To securely handle the complex steps in final assembly, we offer just the right product technologies and configurations. Such as for exact motion control, logging of sequences, or for reliable identification.

We offer high-value solutions which we customize to your special requirements – just like the individual trim levels and engine options of the vehicles themselves. This provides you with a reliable classification system and guarantees reliable processes in the provision of the individual parts so that you finish the painted bodyshells with the needed parts in the correct quantity and type. Using our technology you execute your customer assembly orders with perfection.

Application examples

  • Positioning gripper systems on robots

    Positioning gripper systems on robots

    The solution

    In final assembly our inductive distance sensors reliably detect the linear motion of the gripper jaws – directly on the robot gripper system. Since you can fully integrate the sensor, it is ideal for your very fast-moving applications. Your lightweight robots are continually monitored, for example, in carrying out overhead work such as shock absorber installation or perfect application of door seals.

    The features

    • Compact, solid and reliable
    • Absolute, distance-proportional analog signal
    • Short downtimes for high machine availability
    • Need-based maintenance enabled by continuous diagnostics data via IO-Link

  • Controlling driverless transport vehicles

    Controlling driverless transport vehicles

    The solution

    Rely on our RFID systems and facilitate navigation of driverless transport systems. Which makes efficient material flow possible.

    Permanent communication between the RFID reader in the vehicle and data carriers embedded in the floor means you can precisely guide the vehicle to the respective workstation and track the deliveries. Vehicle parts are reliably provided through the entire plant. And our photoelectric sensors ensure precise positioning at the loading and unloading stations.

    The features

    • Detect absolute position in passing
    • Can verify at any time which vehicle is located where and with what materials
    • Communicate non-contact and maintenance-free
    • Automate work sequences, reduce manual operations

  • Optical identification of semi-finished parts

    Optical identification of semi-finished parts

    The solution

    Our SmartCamera is ideal for identifying the delivered parts for different vehicle models on assembly lines. It reliably checks all common 1D and 2D codes, for example, on bumpers or shafts and ensures that the right semi-finished parts are assembled. The SmartCamera is simple to operate from a common browser.

    The features

    • Operator-friendly user interface
    • Rugged housing and standardized M12 connections for all interfaces
    • Includes image processing software based on the HALCON image processing library from MVTec
    • Integrated IO-Link master port for incorporating additional sensors
    • Exclusive for Profinet users: send process-relevant information as well as control and image data over a separate network

  • Monitoring levels in liquid containers

    Monitoring levels in liquid containers

    The solution

    Our capacitive sensors ensure the highest application security for getting the correct results when testing vehicle function. In function tests they detect levels of various liquids such as coolants, brake fluid, wiper fluid or fuel with absolute reliability. Installed directly in the tanks or without contact through glass or plastic walls. As the level drops, liquid is automatically added to ensure optimal filling.

    The features

    • Non-contact and wear-free
    • Detect aqueous to highly conductive media
    • Can be installed without calibration and requires no cleaning
    • Variants that compensate for moisture, foam and deposits
