Linear system for cylinder lock production

The LS linear system forms the basis of a fast-cycle cylinder lock assembly system.

Challenge

High positioning accuracy with the shortest possible workpiece changing times. These were Aumat's requirements for the design of a new, fully automated system for assembling cylinder locks.

Solution

The cylinder lock goes through a total of 15 processing stations before it becomes a finished product. This large number of stations as well as the required short cycle times were the main reasons for using the LS 280 linear assembly system. The design of the system allows short workpiece changing times of 0.5 seconds and high positioning accuracy with fixed interlocking. The modular cell concept is flexible and offers enhanced accessibility.
