Always perfectly connected

There are many ways to connect parts with each other, with the trend clearly going towards automation. As a leading technology, Active Compliant Technology ensures that in these applications, parts are joined together with ideal pressure too. This is important because the optimal application of force is a decisive key factor for the quality of execution. Handling and assembly tasks with collaborative robots particularly benefit from these impressive advantages.

Joining &
assembly

Joining and assembly processes, in which the delicate handling of the object is crucial, pose particular challenges to automation. The contact intelligence of Active Compliant Technology recognizes the contact situation and uses the precise amount of force for these tasks. ACT improves joining and assembly processes and shortens their processing time.

In repetitive gluing processes, the pressure exerted is the decisive key parameter, because the adhesive coats the surface, but must not be pressed out between the adhesive surfaces. Due to customized and constant contact force, ACT delivers constant top quality even under variable application conditions.

Force-controlled gluing of door seals

In an automated process, the ACF guarantees the required pressing pressure for a perfect gluing of seals on vehicle doors. Also radii are handled easily. The reliable process security of the automated gluing process eliminates the problem of possible water ingress and guarantees a consistently high quality standard.

Joining with integrated quality control

The ACF offers force control for both, pushing and pulling. That is why this equipment is the ideal automation solution for inserting plugs on car bodies. At the same time the firm fit of the plug is checked and all joining parameters are transmitted by the ACF to the control system. Each work step is documented precisely, enabling quality control to be carried out continuously and fully automatic.
