Reinforcement – “C” Pillar welding Cell

THE CHALLENGE

 

Develop and implement welding cells and related processes for the production of a set to integrate the platform of a large volume model: a Reinforcement – “C” Pillar.
Combination of spot welding and application of structural adhesives using an integrated and robotized cell.

 

PROJECT STRENGTHS

 

Advanced welding processes

Four robotic welding cells and four machines also dedicated to complementary welding processes. Welding processes by points and resistance.

 

Advanced Welding Software

Constant monitoring of processes, after pre-installation tasks as modeling, off-line programming, process optimization, and robotic cell simulation.

 

Verification of conformity

The whole process assembly and sequencing project is the work of the MCG teams, in a system that includes all phases of design, manufacturing and 100% compliance of the final product.

 

High production volume

Over 180 weekly hours of welding robot operation and more than 1,600 units produced per day, with a flow of 800 cars  (the 2021 forecast is to increase to 5.000 cars per week).
