This production line allows components to be welded into a shell.
The shell is handled by a motorised gantry and transported from station to station.
The arms of the 4 pairs of grippers are mechanically independent, which allows automatic adaptation to the length of the part. They will switch to master/slave mode when the shell is transported.
At the entrance, a chain conveyor on a rotator allows the tank to be received from the upstream part of the line.
The 3 following assembly stations have the following functions :
At the exit, a link conveyor allows this portion to be connected to the downstream part of the line.
