The ABB ModulFlex define a new era of bodyshops. Designed for multiple model production with fast change-over ensures reuse of hardware and maximizes the return on investment. The ModulFlex allows different sub-assemblies to be produced in the same station, unlocking the full potential of flexible automation like robotics.
The production line now has the ability to build different models at any stage, without modification to the underlying plant infrastructure. This is done by swapping different tooling into the workstation which are held in storage.
- Flexibility in your subassemblies
The ABB ModulFlex is able to store and exchange 6 different tooling jigs. This allows multiple parts to be produced on the same station thus reusing the investment across these parts. It also allows the introduction of future parts onto the same line.
- The ModulFlex allows fully random production, without affecting the cycle time of the production line. The result is the production planner has freedom to adjust production levels according to the plant requirement.
