CP Lab 408-1, with eight application modules

How the system works

The CP Lab 408-1 system represents a networked production system consisting of eight pallet transfer systems with different application modules.

Prerequisites for creating the following process sequence after linking and starting a batch size 1 routing:

  • The magazine module provides a housing shell.
  • The quality data collection is performed using the measuring module's analog distance sensors.
  • The drilling module performs an order-based, simulated drilling operation on the front shell.
  • The Pick-by-Light module enables flexible, complete assembly with worker guidance.
  • As an additional assembly step, the magazine module places the rear shell on top.
  • The press module finalizes the product through the pressing process.
  • The label printer provides the product with a QR code and a customized label.
  • The output module performs the process end: workpiece output.
