Six typical applications in the robot car industry in Yuejiang

From 2021, the automotive industry‘s demand for collaborative Robots will continue to rise, accounting for nearly 1/3 of the collaborative robot application industry.

Reasons for driving demand growth: On the one hand, it comes from consumers’ new demand for personalized car purchases; on the other hand, under the trend of electrification and intelligence, auto parts are facing challenges such as increasingly complex production processes and frequent product adjustments.

market demands and production challenges have accelerated the transformation of automotive production lines to flexible manufacturing. Collaborative robots that are flexible to deploy and easy to switch between production lines have become the best choice for flexible upgrades, and have rapidly penetrated into automotive production in the past two years. Each link.

Yuejiang is actively deploying in the automotive industry and continues to make efforts. At present, the collaborative robot series products have been used in multiple technological processes such as loading and unloading, cutting, screw locking, appearance inspection, component gluing, and grinding of auto parts machine tools.

Six typical applications in the automotive industry

Scenario 1: Machining and loading of auto parts

The machining and loading and unloading of auto parts is highly repetitive, the working environment is harsh, and the operating efficiency of workers is low, which is easy to cause work injuries; the fixed automatic loading and unloading solution takes up a lot of space, the deployment is complicated, and the later transformation is difficult, costly, and long-term.

The Yuejiang collaborative robot replaces manual loading and unloading. One robot is equipped with a double gripper end, which can complete the unloading and loading actions at one time. It manages multiple machine tools without interruption for 24 hours, and the efficiency is greatly improved.

If there is a need to change the line, the user only needs to store the process data of different models, and the production switch can be completed with one click, quickly realizing flexible production and greatly reducing production costs.

Scenario 2: Auto Parts Cutting

Cutting has extremely high requirements on precision and stability, and the uneven speed and poor stability of manual work can easily cause damage to components; traditional automation solutions are not flexible enough, and programming and debugging are complicated and time-consuming when changing lines.

Yuejiang collaborative robot has excellent performance in trajectory accuracy and speed stability, which can ensure that the cutting distance is consistent throughout the whole process without shaking, and the products are neat. It is suitable for cutting automotive parts such as dashboards.

Scenario 3: Screw locking of auto parts

There are many types of screws required for automobile production, and the efficiency of manual screw locking is low, which can easily lead to damage to the screw holes; the layout of traditional automobile production lines is fixed, and the space for adjustment is small, making it difficult to deploy Industrial robots.

The Yuejiang collaborative robot occupies a small space and can work flexibly in a small space. It can precisely lock various types of screws from M1 to M5. Combined with the screw locking process package, it can be deployed faster, without programming, and greatly simplifies the debugging steps to meet the needs of different automotive parts. Lock-in demand, quickly improve the flexibility of the production line.

Scenario 4: Car paint defect detection

Automobile exterior paint defect detection is an extremely cumbersome process in the painting workshop. The traditional method is generally through close-range visual inspection, which has low efficiency and large errors, and defective products are easy to flow into subsequent processes.

The lightweight design of the Yuejiang collaborative robot supports hoisting and side-mounting methods, which can greatly improve space utilization. Compared with industrial robots, it can save a lot of time and cost in deployment.

The combination of robot, 3D visual inspection camera and light source can build a wrap-around inspection workstation with high inspection efficiency and guaranteed quality, and supports body inspection of various models.

Scenario 5: Glue coating of auto parts

The gluing process of auto parts has high requirements for sealing and leak prevention, corrosion resistance and rust prevention, and aesthetic appearance. It is difficult to ensure uniform and stable gluing by manual application, and the colloid contains harmful substances, which is not conducive to the health of workers.

The Yuejiang collaborative robot maintains a stable speed and trajectory accuracy during the gluing process, ensuring uniform gluing, and greatly improving the quality and effect of gluing.

With drag and teach, it can easily complete the recording of complex trajectories, shortening the import time by 80%, and can be applied to the glue coating production of car windows, gearboxes, engines, lights, hoods and other components.

Scene 6: Car parts grinding

Some automotive appearance parts have complex and uneven cut surfaces, which need to be polished before painting. The manual polishing is uneven, and the polishing work is intensive. There is a lot of dust and noise on site, and serious occupational disease problems.

The automatic grinding method is adopted, and the force control sensor and the grinding head are connected to the Yuejiang collaborative robot, which can control the grinding force, maintain stability, and automatically adjust the posture to ensure smooth and consistent grinding of the curved surface.
