Vacuum Technology in the Final Assembly

Vacuum Technology in the Final Assembly

During final assembly, the car is fully assembled, meaning that the last parts, such as bumpers, cardan shaft or tank, are added to the painted body. The next step in the process is assembling the interior, the windows and attachment parts such as windshield wipers, lights, wheels, etc. In the “marriage” process, the motor and auto body are combined. After subsequent function testing, the finished car is driven from the assembly line.

Schmalz’ selection of suction cups allow even difficult-to-hold workpieces such as textiles or bumpers to be handled dynamically. For manual handling operations, vacuum lifters relieve the user of the weight of the workpieces, and make processes ergonomic and efficient.
