Ultrasonic welding of plastic components

AUTFORCE inspection and testing stations

For our customer PAYER we had the pleasure to implement an
assembly process using a collaborative robot.

The project

For our customer, PAYER International Technologies GmbH, we had the pleasure to realize a CUBE in connection with a Cobot. The assembly station is used to automatically insert two halves of a plastic component into the ultrasonic welding unit and then deposit them into a box. With fully loaded magazines, the robot works autonomously for around 45 minutes.

Keyfacts

  • Two plastic components are welded together using ultrasound.
  • The two halves of the part are removed one after the other from the magazine by a collaborating robot using a vacuum triple gripper and placed in a finished part box.
  • In addition, there is still the possibility of a subsequent extension by a leak tester in the existing CUBE, directly next to the welding unit. The leak tester would also be automatically loaded via the existing robot.

Automation of production

Once the robot has been loaded with the relevant magazine, it operates completely autonomously for around 45 minutes. The operator does not have to stand at the welding machine all the time and is available for other work.

Flexibility thanks to modular design

The modular design makes it possible to weld different types of components. Since the robot is mounted on a separate CUBE, it can also be docked to other stations. It is als possible to use the welding station as a manual workstation.

Customized
coloring

Our customer also benefited from the completely customizable color scheme of the CUBES. The CUBES fit seamlessly into the corporate design of our client and are also a real eye-catcher in white and blue.
