Assembly stations

Tailored solutions for individual components

Small standalone assembly machines that solves time consuming tasks.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Every project is handled by a project manager responsible for project development who ensures progression of the project as scheduled, technical implementation, reaching of the goal on time and creation of a suitable assembly system.

The procedure for realising your project is as follows:

  • Consultation
  • Analysis
  • Testing
  • Concept
CONSULTATION

Preliminary review and consultation with a Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)
Each assembly system is a custom-tailored individual solution. For this reason, an extensive dialogue must be held with the customer to clarify the conditions that form the framework of the project. What are the customers’ economic and technical requirements? We are familiar with every option and advise customers on the respective advantages and disadvantages.

ANALYSIS

Thorough analyses prevent subsequent misguided developments. This is why we analyse the existing production environment and evaluates every factor that could affect the automation options. our supplier performs risk analyses and carries out feasibility studies using the FMEA principle (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis). Here, we evaluate the current danger potential of existing risks in overall production for the end product using cause-and-effect chains and also find measures to reduce this danger potential.

TESTING

Individual processes are tested by the suppliers technical centre. This verifies whether automation options will succeed or fail in a real application.

CONCEPT

we create a comprehensive concept for each customer that includes detailed information on the best automation options. It provides an absolute guarantee that the selected assembly platform will ensure the greatest possible efficiency, dependability and process reliability.

Here we show examples of station assembly from MAFU

THE TASK

Automate the filling of gear wheels with cylinder rollers. Customer: ZF

  • filling of the gear wheels with 17 cylinder rollers on each side of the spacer ring
  • the same cylinder rollers are to be used for gear wheels of different heights
  • the difference is to be compensated for through the use of various spacer rings
THE SOLUTION

Mafu develops and manufactures a fully-automated system. The parts are fed via a part bin and a rail. The distance ring and auxiliary spindle are inserted, and the buffer is filled with the 17 rollers in two steps (9 + 8).
The first roller bearing is slid onto the auxiliary spindle with the spacer ring, and the second roller bearing is then slid on up to the spacer ring.

THE ADVANTAGES

  • gear wheel need not be switched around for filling on both sides
  • no twisting of the pin during insertion with auxiliary spindle and spacer ring
  • can be switched over for both gear wheel sizes
  • complete filling in 8 seconds

The simplest solution is often the best solution

Success means return on investment:
Where up-to-date prodution calls for careful consideration, Lanco is the business partner for the future. In almost all areas of industry, Lanco assembly and feeding systems realize time and cost savings.

Customers capitalize on the modular building block system. Individual components can be substituted. Virtually any system expansion can be accommodated allowing a quick response to innovative ideas and product enhancement.
