Automatic assembly machine for car radiators

This stacking system for heat exchangers uses robots to bring two different sheets together.

  • Task: Stacking two different sheets on top of each other.
  • Solution: The sheets are first separated, then fed into the stacking system, while within the plant, the sheets are stacked alternately on top of each other by five robots. If the stack is full, the end is formed with a lid and the stack is removed from the machine to then be inserted into the press by an employee.
  • Result: This enables the production of finned heat exchangers to be automated with an expedited cycle time of just 0.25 seconds per part. It also paves the way for automatic detection of defects during the manufacturing process thanks to a powerful camera system.
