Workstation & storage

We offer you workstations, which structure the workflow from the start to the end of the module production. We design the production process for your needs with individually adapted solutions. A complex number of options leads you easily to the goal.

Interconnection

Manual or automatic transfer of glass and laminates and framed modules. In the base section of the soldering table there are two mirrors and a workplace luminaire to enable the workers to view the underside of the module. As a second step, the second EVA and Tedlar film can be attached manually at this table.

Trimming

Machining the laminate edges. Transfer of the module via ball transfer rollers or an automatic timing belt conveyor. The module is fixed by vacuum suction cups. The laminate can now be freely trimmed. The working height for the machining is freely adjustable. After machining the module is placed back in the home position and can then be conveyed further.

Junction box assembly

The raw module is conveyed onto the timing belt conveyor automatically. If the end position has been reached, the raw module is lifted out by means of 2-hand buttons. After finishing the machining the operator can lower the raw module by release (two-hand control).

Framing station

The framing stations are used for assembling the frame on the module. The module is conveyed on the framing station either semi-automatically (on ball transfer rollers) or automatically (on a conveyor belt). There the frame pieces are mounted on the module manually. After selecting the frame parts (with screwed corners; with corner connection angles), the station can be adapted individually. Equipped with turntable, lifting station and vacuum suction cups, the module can be moved easily. The worker can now fix the parts on the module without any great effort.

Corner angle assembly jig

The frame profile with inserted corner angles (dimensions incl. tolerances to be clarified in advance) is placed in the jig. The jointing process is initiated by a pneumatic two-hand control. The cylinder continues moving forward as long as the two-hand control is activated. The force is adjusted by means of its own pressure controller. The length of the frame profile is adjusted by means of a manual clamp (lengths 660 mm– and 1100 mm, others by arrangement). The pneumatic two-hand control is installed in a plastic housing. The system ensures mechanically that the corner angles are always pressed in symmetrically and to the specified dimension, regardless of the length of the inserted frame profile.

Cleaning station

Transfer of the sheet via rollers. The worker accepts the module and pushes it roughly to the middle of the lifting table. While the module is lifted out, it is held by vacuum suction cups. After the upper table position has been reached the module can be cleaned. If the module has been cleaned, it is lowered back onto the table and can be pushed to the next table. The table position is checked electrically.

Module holder, height-adjustable

The modules (max. weight 175 kg) are moved via a guide, which is equipped with white conical POM rollers, to the middle of the tunnel opening. The height can be adjusted using a handwheel or, for example, a cordless screwdriver (approx. 5-7 Nm for raising the system under load). The top of the used trapezoidal thread screw - TR18x4 (above the handwheel) is equipped with a hexagonal shaft. The holding unit is equipped with an additional holder for the upper part of the module, to prevent the module from tilting.

Module holder for flasher tunnel

Flasher tunnel

Flasher inlet belt: Transfer of the module from the previous station, provision for flasher section. Flasher middle belt: Transfer of the module from the previous station, provision for flasher. The laminates are always transported to the front in the flasher with a fixed reference position. They are aligned on the inlet belt. The position of the laminate (in the conveyor direction) for the performance test is always in the middle of the flasher. As modules with frames also have to be tested, they are positioned starting from the edge. On moving in the module, the module edge is registered by a sensor. The module is then transported further on an adjustable path on the belt. When the module is positioned, the operator must insert the connection cables into the junction box of the test computer. Automatic contacting is possible with the appropriate box. Flasher outlet belt: Provision of the module for removal from the backend. Flasher tower: Consisting of its MiniTec aluminium profile construction with particleboards, which are inset in the grooves. The inside of the tower is kept matt black to meet the specific requirements of the respective test system manufacturer. The apertures inside the tower are also made to the test system manufacturer’s specifications. The top part of the tower is accessible for maintenance purposes.

Uprighting station/cleaning station

Rotatable frame with multiple roller strips (rotational angle ± 90° from the initial position) incl. fixing in the 3 predefined positions (inlet position, inspect front, transfer position). Adjustable stop bar for the different module lengths, fixing the modules in the rotary frame via 2 swivel clamps in the corner positions of the module frame. One of the clamps is fixed, the other is on the adjustable stop bar. Guide rollers on the discharge side with cylinder support, so that the modules do not catch on the rollers for the crossways inlet when they are pushed out.

Visual inspection

Conveying in of the glass panes, laminates or modules by means of a timing belt conveyor. Lifting and presentation for visual inspection and cleaning in 2 positions (high and low). Very good, ergonomic accessibility. The complete conveyor lowers to enable deep, ergonomic presentation. Incl. timing belt conveyor and protective enclosure with access area safeguard by light barrier.
