SAS Automotive's needs

SAS Automotive approached us with the need to develop, design and implement a cutting machine into an existing line for automated cutting of plastic dashboard mounts for a VW, AUDI and Porsche project.

Our solution

● First of all, we had to study the issue of controlling/managing the existing device and its possibility of interfacing with the device we implemented.

● Subsequently, we created a 3D design of the equipment for automated cutting of plastic handles and its placement in the space of the existing line. We presented this concept to the client and after approval and comments, we manufactured and ordered the necessary equipment parts.

● We then assembled the whole device, programmed it and tested its functionality. Subsequently, after internal tuning, the equipment was implemented into the existing line at the customer's site. We fine-tuned the workflow as needed and handed over the finished, fully functional machine to our client SAS Automotive.

● To ensure the safety and smooth operation, we have trained the operators and maintenance of the new equipment.

Our expertise

Festo pneumatic components

3D design software: AutomaDesign3D

Control system: Siemens control

What do we say to the result? The implementation of our assembly equipment directly into the existing line has increased production efficiency, minimized the occurrence of rejects and substantially increased workplace safety, opening up new possibilities in the implementation of our equipment.
