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.
Automotive customers can configure their vehicles as desired. This also makes final assembly very individual. Hardly one vehicle is like another. This high degree of individualisation entails a highly complicated logistics process. The right parts must be in the right place at the right time. Cobots automate these logistics processes.
