Automatic assembly and welding system for accessories on expansion vessels
Italian company and international leader in the engineering and production of expansion vessels and autoclaves.
The customer needs to increase the production capacity and flexibility by adopting a 4.0 solution and reducing the number of operators on the stations to dedicate them to activities with greater added value.
The assembly of the expansion vessels with accessories takes place in 3 stations, each assisted by an operator, with dedicated templates according to the different models. The operators take care of the assembly of the accessories on the expansion vessels and of the discharge of the welded vessels. The welding cycle is performed automatically by robot.
Elimination of risk factors for operators
Greater production flexibility (number of models/variants)

The automatic plant now gets 5 instead of 3 models of expansion vessels directly from the assembly and welding line, also supplied by LEAS, which are then manipulated by robot and transfer system. The production cycle is completely automatic: two robots pick up the accessories from specific warehouses and then deposit them on the welding areas, the operator is just one for the three stations and takes care of setting the welding parameters for automatic cycles on the control panel and authorizing the robot gripper change system for picking the various models.
