Development of automation in the manufacturing process of panel filters
Panel filters, for their obvious advantages, are presently the filter types most often used in the passenger car manufacturing industry.
Technologically advanced machinery facilities and the application of innovative solutions in WIX-FILTRON allows the company to manufacture filters with high precision.
The improved operations are as follows: mould preparation process, mould separation from filter process and the change of the manual process of polyurethane flash cutting, formed during the seal formation, into a fully automated process.
In order to automate the above named operations, we had to install 6 axis robots, controlled with specially designed software interoperating with the assembly line software. The robots, equipped with gripping devices, move in accordance with the program proper for a given filter type, thus ensuring perfect mould coverage with an adhesive agent..
Their tasks also include: very precise cutting of polyurethane flash, parallel to the external edge of the seal also in cases when the filter edge is not a straight line.
Thanks to the application of electronic identification, each filter is identified and the integration of technological processes allows us for manufacturing filters of high quality.
