Suspended on a rail

Manufacturing twenty different headliner versions for two or three models makes it necessary to move these items, during vehicle assembly, to a laser processing station. Hanging these components from a VarioFlow chain conveyor saves space and simplifies handling. Once a batch has been suspended on the conveyor, all the workpieces can be worked through automatically, one after another, and then placed in buffer storage. That makes it possible for the system to work even during breaks and after the end of the shift. One carmaker in the meantime uses this solution, developed by Bosch Rexroth, to serve four complete assembly lines.
