The aim of the project was to perform the two-sided machining of stabilizers for vehicle construction in a fully automatic way.
We developed a special-purpose machine with three industrial robots. The stabilizers are taken out of a storage frame, measured and sorted out, if necessary. After the two-sided machining process (with two processing spindles) they are discharged again. By the usage of a drilling and milling spindle with tool changer and a second spindle with a Komet facing slide for fits and cones, inaccuracies occurring during frequent tool changes are avoided.
