A robotic workstation for assembly and tightening of axle and shock absorber bolts. The workstation was developed for an automotive industry. The idea of automation of this process arose from the need to relieve employees, while preserving the pace of the manufacturing process and creating a more thorough control of the screw connections.
The workstation is made of two stations, while each of them consists of three robots. Each workstation detects the car model which is currently inside. There is a tightening tool and a camera on each robot. The camera guides the robot to the joint depending on where the screw is currently located. It calculates the deviations within the line and corrects the trajectory of the robot. The resulting data such as tightening torques of individual connections, OK / NOK connections, including the position, is sent to the server.
