Assembling

The high point, the finale, the logistical master stroke that is what the final assembly is all about. One cog has to fit into another, and all manufacturing stations have to be perfectly in tune with each other so that even cycle times of less than one minute are achieved.

A key requirement: the close interaction of manual and automated production. Only through perfected logistics processes is it possible to bring different products to the assembly line at specific times and then process them. This is an obvious task for xStart, since nothing is better suited to implementing the continuous transport of car bodies to final assembly.

The motor starter combinations in particular can be integrated perfectly in the materials handling concepts. The tried and trusted DIL contactors and PKZ motor-protective circuit-breakers can also be combined without any tools required. Thanks to the combination plug connector design, everything can not only be installed easily but can also be maintained as well.

Our contactors have one further benefit: 24 V DC versions can be actuated directly from the PLC without the need for any additional components. DIL M contactors allow you to make considerable energy savings inside the installation thanks to their reduced holding power. Thus, additional components such as power supply units, fans or air conditioning devices can be designed with more compact dimensions. Further cost optimization can be implemented with SmartWire. The control current wiring is replaced by just a single cable. In conjunction with additional diagnostics information the SmartWire is connected to a higher level PLC using a fieldbus system.
