In order to equip aluminium structural parts such as car side skirts with the required thread inserts, we were tasked with designing a multi-functional automated system that supported, checked and contributed to ergonomics.
The Antrok Helicoil assembly plant pivots the components being machined automatically in three different positions. The Helicoils are installed by means of a manual screwdriver and are checked in the same step by a laser measurement. Individual height adjustments allow each employee to adjust the system to suit their height. Light curtains, which prevent the system from moving if a person is in the danger zone, provide an extra layer of protection.
