Swiss company Autoneum operates five DIEFFENBACHER automotive component production lines at its Sevelen site. Together with DIEFFENBACHER, Autoneum has now extensively modernized one of the lines, a GMT/LFT-D line for glass-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics. One highlight of the project was the introduction of the new EVORIS digitalization platform.The modernized GMT/LFT-D line introduces a new line control system, including the safety PLC and three 6-axis robots. In addition, various motion sequences of the loading and unloading robots were optimized. Reis robots were retired during the modernization; however, Autoneum was able to map its processes and comply with all safety requirements with the new robots despite the tight space conditions. “We can now use our GMT/LFT-D system in a cycle-time-optimized manner,” said Christoph Bless, Head Operational Maintenance & Repair at Autoneum. “The availability of the plant components is guaranteed.”To further optimize production, Autoneum decided to implement the EVORIS digitalization platform. EVORIS uses artificial intelligence to make plants faster and more efficient.
