  • SAMPLE PROJECTS

  • ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY specializes in building systems for manufacturing automotive components. Our customers manufacture a wide range
    of interior and exterior components using our systems. The following overview shows examples of some of these components.
    • A/B/C PILLARS

    • One of ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s specialties is laser-cutting pillar coverings for motor vehicles. These components, made with back injection molded materials, must be cut very cleanly and precisely after the injection molding process. They require a high level of path accuracy and a clean, smooth cut features that are guaranteed by our laser robot. ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s complete system solutions ensure a high level of process security and fast applications.
    • FILMS

    • The back injection molding process for film components is gaining popularity in the automotive industry. Before the injection process, the film is cut using laser systems from ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY. It is important for this process to be clean and extremely precise. ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s scanner technology, combined with the laser robot or the FLACS.SCAN, guarantees these characteristics. In addition, we have built up a wealth of expertise in the area of fixture building, which is combined with vacuum technology to form the basis for this process.
    • BUMPER

    • In processing automotive bumpers, ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY offers systems for removing the bumper from the injection molding machine as well as laser systems for cutting the different variants. Shelf-type robots are often used for removing parts from the injection molding machine; they also perform follow-up tasks, such as sprue cutting, flaming, creating variants, etc. The laser-cutting systems produce various chrome liner versions, license-plate designs, cutouts for exhaust-gas cleaning systems and hitch fittings. The advantage is that the different variants can be realized in a highly precise way after painting, and without post-processing.
    • I-PANEL

    • The processing of I-panels involves various tasks. With our laser systems, ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY allows for edge cutting, cutouts in the center area and airbag perforations.
    • TRUNK LINING

    • A significant application area for laser-cutting systems is cutting the linings for car trunks. The rear injection molded carpet needs to be cut perfectly to size. Often, this also involves cutouts for CD players, GPS systems, etc. Our systems are highly flexible in this area.
    • STEERING WHEEL

    • Laser-cutting systems from ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY are used in creating variants of steering wheels. Laser cutting allows for cost-effective realization of highly flexible components that do not require post-processing.
    • HEADLIGHT HOUSING

    • Our FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system is an optimal processing system for creating variants of headlight housings. Our systems technology also guarantees a high level of precision in hard-to-reach areas. Stamping equipment would not be suitable here because of the complex angles.
    • MIRROR HOUSING

    • Injection molded mirror housings are removed by 6-axis robots. Here our systems offer a high level of flexibility, fast removal and a high level of process security.
    • REAR WINDOW SHELF

    • In general, rear window shelves with fabric decorations cannot be processed using stamping equipment. Stamping equipment is not flexible enough, and it does not make clean cuts. Laser systems allow these components to be manufactured with a high level of precision and without filament formation.
    • TELEPHONE COVER

    • The FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system is optimal for cutting films, for instance to be used with telephone covers. Our systems allow you to achieve shorter intervals and higher quality standards than ever before.
    • SEPARATION WALL / TRUNK

    • The plastic components, back injection molded with needle fleece, are processed with laser-cutting systems from ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY.

      For instance, our systems execute the edge cutting and the cutouts for creating variants. The advantage is a very clean, precise-edged cut.
    • DOOR MODULE

    • In processing door modules, ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY offers systems for a wide variety of components. For instance, we can perforate windowsills in order to allow later vacuum sealing, cut door inserts for later welding, and process back injection molded arm rests with precise edges. For these components, a clean, smooth cut is essential for later high-quality use.
    • DOOR MODULE PITCHING

    • In a subsequent process, door modules are covered by a film. This requires vacuum holes to be made. The vacuum holes are created very quickly and precisely using our FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system. The holes have a very small diameter and are no longer visible after they are covered. The laser process also makes it possible to avoid burr formation.
    • CYLINDER HEAD GASKET

    • Cylinder head gaskets manufactured with a metal-rubber composite usually need to be cut after the injection process. ROBOT-TECHNOLOGY’s FLACS.SCAN laser-cutting system is used here to guarantee fast, highly precise cutting. A simple reprogramming process allows a wide variety of variants to be cut in a very short amount of time.
