In the assembly process, we use various joining technologies, including: folding, clinching, hemming, riveting, gluing, spot welding, MIG welding, brazing, laser cutting and laser welding. Closure parts are usually screwed or welded.
We also increasingly use camera systems (vision systems) to position or handle parts. These vision systems are connected to robots and transmit the necessary process information, thus enabling the robot to determine its further processes.
The products are transported almost fully automatically; the same goes for the application of joining techniques.
In addition to building completely new lines, VDL Steelweld is also highly experienced in integrating new models into existing production facilities.
The engineering processes are characterized by a high level of digitalization up to building and commissioning complete factories in a digital world.
