Application Example: Voestalpine Polynorm Group

In-house development of special tools and robot production processes

Incredible production flexibility, while still ensuring efficient production – even of the smallest batches. Rotary tables from WEISS impress yet again.

Challenge

The Voestalpine Polynorm Group manufactures bodywork parts for the automotive industry. To this end the group develops efficient production means which are specifically adapted to production by product groups. In the interest of lower total cost of ownership and a faster return on investment.

Solution

In particular, WEISS heavy duty tables and electromagnetic tables are used. In order to achieve an ergonomic working height, the heavy duty tables are recessed in the floor, which is facilitated by their low overall height. The motion sequences of ABB robots and rotary tables can be perfectly synchronised due to the high precision of the WEISS tables. And last but not least, the reliability and durability of the WEISS components increase the return on investment.
