Automotive Chassis and safety

Automation solutions for car body and passenger safety

Our sales team

Laser cutting of body panels, coating of headlamp lenses, milling of composite front aprons, high tech assembly of ABS systems, zero-defect production of airbags – the scope for deploying robots in the areas of bodywork and safety is almost endless.  Stäubli robots are proving their worth in all conceivable applications where there is no room for error. The strengths of the four-axis and six-axis machines – precision, dynamics, trajectory control and reliability – are the prerequisites for viable solutions in these sensitive areas.

Success stories
Stäubli AG - WHSPlastics-pim-2x-68844-jpg-orig.jpg
Full processing of injection-molded parts with two robots (WHS Plastics)

A British plastics processor has invested heavily in the full processing of components by robots alongside the presses. The concept has been so successful that the robot is now part of the package with every new injection molding machine ordered.

X-ray inspection for zero-defect production (Kiekert)

Czech manufacturer Kiekert produces around 180,000 motor vehicle locks per day. An intelligent robotic cell for in-line X-ray inspection, featuring a Stäubli TX60 six-axis robot, ensures the highest quality standards.

Stäubli AG - Darne_SUST-pim-2x-66071-jpg-orig.jpg
Use of robots for prototype and small batch production (Darne)

A Spanish manufacturer of lightweight components for motor racing was reaching the limits of what could be achieved with its existing three-axis machine. The solution, which adds flexibility, cost-effectiveness and design freedom, came with the purchase of a Stäubli robot.

TX200 HSM (High Speed Machining)
Robot-assisted machining of molds (Audi)

At the highly advanced Audi Competence Center for Plant Equipment and Forming Technology, the company is working towards digitally linking all processes.  A robotic machining center now replaces four radial drilling machines in the manufacture of molds.
