Trust is good. Monitoring is better.
High-performance identification systems from Leuze electronic make possible quick and reliable component identification in quality assurance with simple integration into all current fieldbus systems. Highly modern safety solutions also protect the quality assurance employees when they have to intervene in running processes and remove parts to be checked. Thanks to our sensor solutions, faulty work pieces can be identified, registered and removed from the process during fully-automated procedures.
Casting and storing automated parts
Increasing automation in production and storage of cast parts also necessitates automated logistics and process monitoring. Special sensor solutions are used here, since casting molds, for instance, can only be durably identified via temperature-proof RFID transponders. Highly-dynamic transport on conveying belts or using cranes and robots is also monitored with active optoelectronic protective devices and is safeguarded just like the actual casting area.
So that it moves forward
Different work and processing steps have to mesh together in a way that prevents as many faults as possible in the various assembly steps of a power train. This is why powerful sensor solutions in the smallest designs from Leuze electronic are used for the mounting of motors, gears and axles. Today, the material of power train components is directly equipped with 2D-codes. Highly-developed code readers ensure that the right parts are mounted at the right place at the right time.
From a simple plate to a complex component
These days, press plants are almost completely automated and are controlled and monitored using fast, resistant sensors. The plates are transported directly from the coils to the press line at whose end the completed punched and formed pieces are removed by robots. Modern manufacturing methods require the identification of plates, usually with dot-peened 2D-codes, to facilitate the monitoring of the further process sequence with code readers.
Extreme strain at the highest precision
In body shell production, different body types are often produced on one welding line. This type of flexibility requires faster and highly-precise sensors, e.g. for use in fitting tools. In addition, the sensors used are also exposed to extreme mechanical stress due to flying welding sparks and regular cleanings with dry ice. Leuze electronic has developed solutions to meet these demands.
Efficient corrosion protection and aesthetic paint jobs
At the latest during the elaborate catalytic dip coating process, the vehicle bodies or skids have to be marked using RFID transponders, since these are the only ones that sustainably withstand the immersion baths and oven drying at up to 200 °C. During the subsequent painting job with robots, powerful sensors and camera systems are also essential to ensure problem-free processes and consistent results.
From individual parts to a fully-functional vehicle
In the final mounting stage of a vehicle, man and machine work together very closely. Hazards must therefore be ruled out with reliable safety sensors. Furthermore, high quality standards require the consistent checking and logging of components marked with bar codes, 2D-codes or RFID. Leuze electronic has sensor systems suitable for detecting the location of the vehicle body on pushing platforms, skids or telpher lines at any time and checking its production status.
