Car Manufacturing Made Easy with Universal Robots

Jun 12, 2017

Car manufacturing production lines can be greatly improved with a collaborative solution from Universal Robots. Universal Robot collaborative arms offer reduced production time, compact and space savings, and an extremely fast set-up time and deployment.

Auto­mo­tive pro­duc­tion lines can now move to the fast lane with a col­lab­o­ra­tive robot arm from Uni­ver­sal Robots. Uni­ver­sal Robot col­lab­o­ra­tive arms bring numer­ous advan­tages and great val­ue to all stages on the pro­duc­tion line with­in the auto­mo­tive and aero­space indus­tries. Here are some of the great ben­e­fits that a UR arm can bring:

  • Reduced pro­duc­tion time on the assem­bly line
  • Com­pact, offer­ing great space-sav­ing options
  • Easy to re-deploy to mul­ti­ple appli­ca­tions with­out chang­ing the pro­duc­tion layout
  • Extreme­ly fast set-up time, only about half a day
  • No tra­di­tion­al added costs
  • The fastest pay­back in the indus­try- around 195 days!

A Uni­ver­sal Robot arm can be used in the robot­ic car man­u­fac­tur­ing sys­tems just like any oth­er car man­u­fac­tur­ing or auto­mo­bile robot. They are incred­i­ble suc­cess­ful in all types of envi­ron­ments that depend on high qual­i­ty and pre­ci­sion. These appli­ca­tions include engine foundries, laser-cut­ting rigs, form­ing press­es, mold­ing machines, and pack­ag­ing and pal­letiz­ing lines. These Uni­ver­sal Col­lab­o­ra­tive robot arms can also be used in screw dri­ving, assem­bling, label­ing, han­dling, and qual­i­ty con­trol scenarios.

How­ev­er, a huge ben­e­fit is that any of the three dif­fer­ent col­lab­o­ra­tive robot arms can eas­i­ly be inte­grat­ed onto exist­ing auto­mo­tive pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ments. These amaz­ing ben­e­fits and flex­i­bil­i­ty are demon­strat­ed with a real-life Uni­ver­sal Robot project summary. 

Uni­ver­sal Robots was recent­ly very suc­cess­ful­ly with installing their sys­tems into a Swedish con­tract man­u­fac­tur­er, LEAX. LEAX pro­duces dri­ve shafts, main shafts, input and out­put shafts, drill bits, indus­tri­al gear­box­es, and com­plete pro­peller shafts for heavy vehi­cles. In the past, they would have to move machin­ery around in the fac­to­ry in order to find the best flows. They were ready to switch to a more flex­i­ble pro­gram, that was eas­i­er to set-up, pro­gram, and that used their space more effi­cient­ly. LEAX man­u­fac­tures a vari­ety of items that require small vol­umes or up to 100,000 units. This means that they not only require, but expect, quick exe­cu­tion and focus. After dis­cussing their options, the LEAX Group went with three UR10 robot arms for chang­ing bits with­in a shav­ing machine, and also for load­ing and unload­ing two gear-cut­ting machines with a three-fin­gered gripper.

The beau­ty of their pur­chase of the three UR10 robots is that if they choose to stop man­u­fac­tur­ing a cer­tain prod­uct, these arms will be able to be used with new and dif­fer­ent appli­ca­tions. So, LEAX was able to get all of their desires and more as they con­tin­ue pro­duc­ing a vari­ety of prod­ucts effi­cient­ly now and also as they move into the future of unknown pro­duc­tion items. Over­all, the flex­i­ble UR robot was able to suc­cess­ful­ly opti­mize pro­duc­tion, use of space, and enable agile man­u­fac­tur­ing for the future.
