„Ball and Ramp” assembly system

  • Task

    For the fabrication of new brake callipers with an electric brake adjustment, the customer needed a fully automatic system for preassembly of the "Complete cartridge" system. During this project, WEBER GmbH had to design, build and commission a new assembly system, including spare parts, for different product variants.

  • Performance

    The project included the following activities:

    • Individual parts feed was solved with palletisers and feed bowls
    • Construction of the assembly stations
    • Mounting of individual parts in chained assembly and testing stations
    • Faster transport of the workpiece carriers using a spindle conveyor system
    • 100 percent inspection of assemblies
    • Detection and rejection of NOK components after each assembly step
    • At the end, the finished product parts are palletised with a cycle time of less than 7 sec.
