The number of new vehicle models

One of the biggest challenges in today’s automotive production environment is the incorporation of multiple vehicles at the same plant in much higher densities than in the past. Since the demand for new vehicles is increasing every year, OEMs are adding new models and variants by increasing the production capacity of their existing plant.

Driven by the need to increase production capacity and shorten cycle time, manufacturers in numerous industries are taking advantage of various automation technologies. One of these automation technologies is Robotics. Automakers and automotive related industries particularly implement greater use of robots in their BIW assembly line, as their assembly lines are quite complex. Robots automate the production of various components and simplify most of the tasks on assembly line.

Consequently, to successfully apply robotics technology in BIW assembly line, there lay a stronger need for effective analysis and design tools. Robotic simulation is one of the digital manufacturing techniques that help to visualize entire robotic workcells and sort out any problems before investing in costly equipment. Robotic simulation is widely utilized in the automotive industry as their BIW assembly line involves multiple robots, tooling fixtures, humans, etc. that needs to be validated and optimized prior to system build to ensure that it will yield the desired results. Cost savings, safety and user interaction are some of the advantages that makes robotic simulation a valuable tool in the manufacturing industry.

Why Robotic simulation?

Robotic simulation is a technique of building a model of a real or proposed robotic workcell so that the robot’s behavior may be studied. It aims at visualizing and optimizing the performance of a robot in a manufacturing cell, and can help in validating layouts, cycle time estimates, balance multi robot lines, optimize floor space, and check tooling and fixture designs. Everything from cycle time to robot reach to tool validation is performed in simulation. Robotic simulation:

  • » Accelerates new product introduction (NPI)
  • » Ensures a working process
  • » Provides tremendous scope for optimization
  • » Facilitates collaboration amongst design, digital manufacturing engineers, and shop floor
  • » Eliminates costly mistakes
  • » Saves time

About BIW assembly line

Product BOM of the BIW skeleton consists of more than thousands components, which can be broadly divided in four major groups –

  • » Underbody assembly (assembly of motor compartment, front/rear floor, rear compartment, rocker)
  • » Closures (sub assemblies of doors, decklid, hood , fenders)
  • » Inner framing (assembly of bodyside inner, roof bow, shelf, rear-end)
  • » Outer framing (assembly of body side outer, roof, motor rail extension)

All these major components of vehicle body are assembled through robotic operations like material handling, geo spot welding, respot welding, arc welding, nut/ stud welding, clinching, dispensing, pedestal operations, vision system, hemming, tabbing etc.

Essential capabilities of Robotic Simulation in BIW assembly

The core activities of robotic simulation in BIW assembly are:

  • » Validate and optimize the Process
  • » Validate and optimize the Tools
  • » Validate and optimize Plant Layout
    1. Validate and Optimize the Process
      Robotic simulation is a powerful tool that helps in simulating the entire process and verifying that the robots can perform all the desired tasks efficiently. Automotive workcells usually have multiple robots that have to be sequenced properly to optimize cycle times and minimize interference zone wait times.
      A typical automotive BIW has several thousand weld spots to create the assembly from the individual sheetmetal stampings, and a significant amount of time goes in determining an optimum weld spot distribution between the robots. Robotic simulation addresses the early planning phase of spot-welding design process. It facilitates optimum weld spot sequence and distribution of weld points to multiple stations in a simulation environment. Similarly, other processes like material handling, dispensing and arc welding process sequences can also be validated and optimized through robotic simulation. The robotic simulation team works in close collaboration with the processing team to design and validate all processes in a 3D model. The simulation team analyzes alternate scenarios to identify a process with optimum cycle times. By simulating robot motions during design, the team verifies whether the robots will be able to achieve the required motions without interference and arrive at a realistic cycle time and throughput.

Important Reasons Why Dashboard Cameras Need To Be Installed In Your Car

There are lots of people who are noticing the popularity of dash cams and why they are used all over Western countries nowadays.Couple of years back, dashboard cameras were only installed inside the vehicles of policemen. Then something came up that was out of the blue, a meteor happened to crash land into a nearby remote town that is located within the area somewhere in Siberia, Russia, then there was a big commotion on Youtube due to the fact that lots of videos were uploaded about the crash. It is because when it comes to Russia, cars have become quite popular around the world due to the fact that they have dash cams installed inside of them to counter the corruption and fraudulent issues that plague the country. There are lots of different reasons why Russian drivers use dash cams. Reason number one is because dash cams are very helpful when it comes to Russian drivers that get into accidents that are not their own fault, they can use the video that was captured by their dash cams to provide evidence that they were not the ones who caused the accident. Number two reason for this is because Russian drivers will be protected by their dash cams as they cannot be extorted money by police officers who are corrupt due to the fact that they can be caught on the dash cam. The third reason is because there are still people who are desperate for money that they will do anything like causing accidents on the road in order for them to blame the drivers of the vehicles and claim insurance money from them. What happens next? Dash cams can still be useful in other countries except Russia too. There are lots of lucky people who have the luxury to live in places where there is less corruption, but it is still better to have dash cams just to be safe.

Car accidents can never be avoided or predicted, that is why lots of people cannot say that these things will never happen to them because it can. Reason number four, dash cams are not all for protection of people when it comes to traffic accidents, they can also make dash cams funny and have lots of time enjoying it while they are driving on the road. There are lots of times where people tend to go to many places and experience magnificent views that they want to see all over again.
