ACTIVE SENSITIVE KIT 201
A grinding system specially developed on the basis of Active Compliant Technology for optimized post-processing of laser-soldered joints, which provides the following advantages:
consistent high quality level
automatic tolerance compensation
integrated suction hood
process monitoring in real time
The premium automobile manufacturer continuously optimizes its production (f.e. frame production and body-in-white) in order to work cost-effectively and shorten throughput times, and has also perfected the process of grinding roof joints.
To achieve an optimal paint result, the laser-soldered joint that connects the roof to the body must be ground flawlessly. Station time and manual labor have been reduced to a minimum to perfect the process.
The process begins with the automatic adjustment of the suction hood on the FerRobotics ASK to achieve the optimal suction effect and an associated reduction in dust formation. Then the two grinding systems grind both roof joints in a single step, instead of three, as was formerly required. Thanks to our patented Active Compliant Technology, through which precise, constant contact pressure is applied, the laser-soldered joint is ready to paint after this process step.
- Perfectly prepared surfaces
- Consistent, reproducible quality
- Enormous savings in production costs
- Guaranteed process safety
