Review Testing Expo 2015, June in Stuttgart
Innovations by Dürr Assembly Products at the Testing Expo 2015: more flexibility and precision
Puettlingen, July 15th, 2015 – „Ahead through innovation“ – With this motto Dürr Assembly Products presented itself from 16th until 18th June 2015 at the fair Testing Expo 2015 in Stuttgart. More than 50 representatives of 15 automotive manufacturers got informed about the innovations of several testing product lines. The new products ensure more flexibility as well as faster and precise processes.
The product line “Passenger Vehicle Testing” presented a state-of-the-art toe setting tool. It enables a fully automatic setting of toe and camber in the wheel alignment stand in the assembly line or at the end of line. The key customer benefit: space and personnel requirements for the test stand as well as the cycle times can be reduced significantly. Moreover, errors which often occur in case of manual testing and inputs can be practically ruled out.
Furthermore, Dürr Assembly Products presented the new setting tool for headlamps and driver assistance systems “Smart Ergo Drive” of the product line “Passenger Vehicle Testing”. This ultra-light nutrunner has a push-down mechanism which enables an automatic start and a process-capable setting.
In the field „Commercial Vehicle Testing“ the interested customers saw targets for the setting of the adaptive cruise control ACC and the lane departure warning LDW. The targets form integral parts of the test stand for driver assistance systems in commercial vehicles.
A process-capable and precise setting of driver assistance systems guarantees the correct positioning of the sensors and thus, the safety on the road.
The product line “Assembly” showed the exhibit “x-gun”, an innovative bolting system which is able to carry up to four bolts of different sizes in the accompanying magazine. The bolts are taken from a bolt nest and held inside the magazine by means of a pneumatic gripper. The system is less complex and thus more cost-effective than competitor products. Nevertheless, it offers a considerably higher flexibility. Due to the fact that the magazine is able to take over all bolts at the same time cycle times are reduced.
The fourth product line, the “Service”, presented the new testing and calibration device “x-cal weight”. It is used to test and calibrate the weighing unit of the wheel alignment stand “x-wheel”, which is integrated in the floating plates, in regular intervals. The benefit for the customer: calibration weights which are difficult to handle will be replaced. Check and calibration are performed much quicker compared to usual procedures.
Dürr Assembly Products will come back to the Testing Expo 2016 in Stuttgart with new ideas. Europe’s leading trade fair for testing and development procedures in the automotive industry will take place next year from May 31st until June 2nd.
