AIRSKIN® in moving-line assembly
Revolutionizing Safety in Automotive Manufacturing at Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH with AIRSKIN®
Exciting strides at AIRSKIN®! In collaboration with InPro electric GmbH (https://www.inpro-electric.de/) we could help Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH make further steps towards open and fenceless production. AIRSKIN® enables automated rolling of door paneling in the open production at the running vonveyor belt.
- Automatic rolling of door paneling synchronized on both sides using KUKA Cybertech and AIRSKIN® with 50-100 N pressure.
- Achieving a remarkable speed of 500 mm/s in open space (and a potential for 750 mm/s), surpassing previous industry standards.
- Ensuring safety without the need for additional safety technology, marking a leap forward in fenceless applications.
Key Benefits for VW:
- Improved Ergonomics: Eliminating arduous manual labor and challenging working positions, fostering a safer and healthier workplace environment.
- Enhanced Efficiency: Empowering employees to focus on complex tasks, optimizing resource utilization for more impactful contributions.
- Space Optimization: Overcoming spatial constraints by enabling fenceless applications, crucial in VW's finishing areas where setting up traditional fences is impractical.
- Safety: Completely safe fenceless operation adhering to ISO/TS 15066.
Impact on Production:
Programmed collision retraction of several centimeters allows uninterrupted production, with a subsequent full stop occuring only if the collision persists, ensuring both safety and productivity.
Our partnership with Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH demonstrates how AIRSKIN® unifies productivity, safety and workplace ergonomics within the automotive sector.
We take pride in supporting Volkswagen's dedication to innovation and ensuring the well-being of their employees.
