The large diversity of variants and the complexity of gearbox modules make integrated measuring and testing facilities absolutely necessary during assembly. AuE designs and implements partial processes such as joining, pressing, bolting, and measuring as well as complete vehicle gearbox assembly lines for prestigious automotive manufacturers.
Typical subprocesses in a gearbox assembly line:
A high diversity of variants and often rough external contours make it necessary to use variable stations. As the average cycle time is three to five minutes, combinations of manual and automated subprocesses are the rule. Traceability and error prevention (for example with Poka Yoke) are of essence for each assembly step.
A transmission assembly line usually is made up of the following components:
AuE transmission assembly lines are used in the VW factory in Baunatal, among others.
