Ferdinand Wagner relies on two UR5 robots They work closely together and with the other machines. One of the robots takes care of the first processes. It selects the parts to be welded, places them in a spot welding machine and places them in a liquid.
In the second process, the second collaborating robot transports the part to a high-frequency soldering station for assembly. After this work, the robot holds the parts in a camera system for automatic inspection.
Since Ferdinand Wagner Profiles works with sensitive parts and the surfaces must not be damaged, the robots and grippers are very finely adjusted. This avoids high costs caused by the unusability of damaged parts.
Both robots are designed for the joint processing of 160 parts. Machining takes place in two-shift intervals, followed by a free shift. Even after the end of the working day, the Cobots continue to work in an unnamed one until the material is used up.
Employees did not have to be released from work. They can now devote themselves to smaller series and thus have much more variety.
