OmniVance Clipping Cell
The next revolution in automotive plastics processing
The OmniVance Plastics Assembly – Clipping Cell brings greater speed and flexibility to automotive interior plastics processing as the market’s first automated solution that can clip together a wide range of parts using the same production cell.
The standardized design of the cell enables Auto Tier 1 businesses to quickly switch between a wide range of assemblies, including instrument panels, center consoles, fuel tanks, and door panels.
The SmartFeeder uses a SCARA robot and an integrated vision system to simultaneously process up to three different clip variants, without changing the gripper, saving costs and time.
The Cell achieves clip insertion rates of 2.5 seconds per clip due to the linear arrangement of the gripper. High-quality insertion is guaranteed, thanks to integrated quality control that allows the validation of 100% of the inserted clips, reducing rework.
The standardized design of the Clipping Cell enables users to quickly and easily re-tool and reprogramme the solution to process different car parts and models, in less than half the time and at a fraction of the cost needed to set up a new dedicated cell.
The Clipping cell is ready to be integrated with autonomous mobile robots to automate parts feeding, enhancing flexible manufacturing and logistics efficiency
The fully integrated solution comes in a modular yet compact design, available with the option to expand contract the frontal area depending on the part dimensions. An additional robot can be introduced to speed up production, while the entire cell can also be easily relocated only using a forklift.
