Precise welding and handling in the body shop

Body manufacture in automotive production is a job for welding robots.
Robust solutions have to position the sheet metal with great accuracy and repeatability, supply the line with small parts, and the welding guns with compressed air and cooling water.

 

Suitable products for the body shop

Elektrisches Terminal CPX

Command bridge to Industry 4.0

The electrical terminal CPX together with the valve terminal VTSA.
This automation solution combines I/O modules, valve functionality and safety functions in accordance with ISO 13849-1 into one unit. The high level of function integration, the comprehensive fieldbus options and IO-Link® make this unit the decentralised intelligence in Industry 4.0 scenarios.

 

Maximum productivity: terminal CPX

Valve terminals with function integration

Energy efficiency module MSE6

Energy efficiency module MSE6

 

Ideal for supplying compressed air to cells. With leakage detection and continuous pressure and flow measurement. The automatic reduction of the holding pressure during non-productive times prevents the pneumatic clamps from falling off. Provider for condition monitoring and process data acquisition systems.

Manufacturing with the best energy balance

Connection of additional devices (IOs) on the hall or robot installation plate.
