Flexibility on the assembly line. Pneumatics keep a firm grip on car body assembly.
Body parts are transported from one welding station to the next. Pneumatics are used for holding and gripping. Optimum tailored solutions are required. Festo offers a wide selection of compact, space saving and function-specific cylinders and valves, enabling transport robots to work quickly and accurately.
Customers demand flexibility right from the start.
During body assembly, there are already several hundred different designs for one vehicle type. This requires the highest flexibility in automation. The correct parts have to be in the right place at the right time and need to be held in position with absolute precision. When welding, for instance, the repetition accuracy for the position of the spot welds is particularly important. And this is the exact reason why car body assembly is a main area of application for innovative Festo pneumatic solutions, whether in welding facilities, on welding guns or for parts handling.
Welding processes make high demands on the individual components. For example, the cables need to be made of flame retardant plastic or metal. This is why Festo has developed special products for welding tongs. Whether you choose products with conventional control or with servopneumatics, Festo will improve your welding quality every time.
