Automotive Powertrain

Automation solutions for applications in powertrain manufacture

Our sales team

Powertrain applications are among the most challenging for a robot-assisted production line. Errors can quickly lead to the complete failure of vehicles, which is the worst-case scenario for any automobile manufacturer. Robot involvement ranges from the assembly of high-resolution sensors and the complex manufacture of engine and transmission components to the cleaning of parts. Stäubli Robotics also has solutions for some rather unusual applications, such as splash-proof 6-axis models for cleaning tasks and ESD versions that counter electrostatic discharge.

Success stories

Robot-assisted testing of printed circuit boards (Baumann)

Control units for automotive safety systems must function perfectly under all conditions. For this reason, one-hundred percent testing of the circuit boards used is mandatory. Thanks to robotics, this is now faster and more flexible than ever.

Robots perfectly suited to parts cleaning in an engine plant (Nissan)

The management at the Nissan Dongfeng engine plant in China found out the hard way that standard robots are not at all suitable for inline parts cleaning. It was only when they made the switch to the six-axis TX200 HE from Stäubli that they found an efficient and reliable solution.

Production of oil level sensors (Engel)

Four Stäubli SCARAs prove their worth in the production of oil level sensors. These highly dynamic four-axis machines pick up punched parts and connectors, insert metal parts, remove the finished injection-molded parts and clear away the sprue.

Automated exhaust valve production (Klubert & Schmidt)

Exhaust valve manufacturer Klubert + Schmidt integrated a fast and accurate Stäubli TX90L robot into its automated machine tool to handle loading/unloading and other supplemental operations at the machine.
