Difficult to access machine loading
When moving a highly complex, out-of-sight cell, it is essential to avoid a lengthy production stoppage.
The deviations that occurred were corrected by the Wiest software, and the line was immediately returned to production. Wiest AG helped the customer reduce a lengthy production stoppage to a minimum.
Integration on the second line without reteaching
Prevention of downtime
Shortening the commissioning
The plant produces shift forks for transmissions. A KUKA KR30 feeds the parts into an out-of-sight CNC milling machine. There they are inserted into the machine by the robot. This process is highly complex and is supported by a force-torque sensor that guides the robot.
The cell is to be moved. The existing robot programmes are very difficult to teach because the cell is not observable. Teaching itself is only possible with mirrors. This line is also important for the customer’s global production. A lengthy production stoppage for a time-consuming teach-in would therefore be unacceptable.
