Battery Test Stand - HAHN Automation
Global developments and innovations increasingly demand standardized and intelligent manufacturing solutions. HAHN Automation has developed integrated, comprehensive solutions, from assembly and processes to complex test engineering. The concepts of the test systems are always adapted to the needs of the operators. For this purpose HAHN Automation continuously develops its own test processes and can continuously improve and optimize them.
HAHN Automation’s test engineering is not only adapted to the latest state of technology, but also designed to be particularly efficient. The test processes are real time capable and based on PC-supported systems. The user interface of the test application is fully integrated into the plant control system and adapted to the needs of the production. In addition, it is possible to access and manage all information relevant for the test engineer in special menus. Integration of test systems and interfaces of all common bus systems for the control of actuators in the automobile are a matter of course for HAHN Automation.
Dyna Check Shock Absorber - HAHN Automation
DynaCheck Shock Absorbers specialize in the functional testing of closed and fully assembled single and twin-tube shock absorbers. The test can be carried out with previously defined parameters and variably configurable measurement tasks. With two integrated linear drives, all motion profiles can be run, which enables testing with different strokes and speeds. The user interface of the test system is fully integrated into the system control and adapted to the production requirements. A central panel is used to control the entire system and enables the test engineer to clearly display relevant information and measurement results.
EOLT Turbo Charger - HAHN Automation
HAHN Automation has developed a cold gas test bench for exhaust gas turbochargers, which can be fully integrated into the production line of these. In this cold gas test, the internal combustion engine is simulated in order to evaluate the quality of the respective turbocharger on the basis of critical characteristics. The entire test is fully automatic and line-integrated.
SmartSolutions - HAHN Automation
The new SmartSolutions product portfolio offers manufacturing companies a new way to efficiently automate starting with a minimum quantity of one piece. The industrial processing systems from HAHN Automation map a multitude of processes and can be operated by everyone. Thanks to the software innovation SIA (smart intuitive automation), operators can set up and control the system on the tablet using symbols and graphics. The intuitive design of the SIA user interface is already known to many from the smartphone, which keeps the entry barrier low.
EVE Suite - HAHN Digital
With EVE Suite, HAHN Digital provides a portfolio of innovative solutions that put the digital transformation of tomorrow’s Smart Factory into practice. Upon the integration of EVE Suite services into their processes, users can noticeably increase their output regarding the most important factors: Productivity, Efficiency, Quality, Flexibility.
Mobile Robots - HAHN Robotics
HAHN Robotics, as a successful integrator of driverless transport systems for many years, increases the efficiency of processes in companies. Employees are freed from intralogistic activities and can be assigned to other tasks, thus enabling higher operational effectiveness and sustainable productivity increases. The freely navigating AGVs allow a quick and easy commissioning without changing the existing infrastructure and workstation arrangements. The flexible use of Mobile Robots replaces permanently installed conveyor technology and supports the internal material flow for optimized production processes.
Palletizing Kit - HAHN Robotics
The Palletizing Kit is an easy-to-use, ready-to-use and fully integrated palletizing solution that, when combined with a Cobot, allows you to automate unpleasant, stressful and time-consuming tasks unencumbered and without significant adjustments to your production layout.
A centrally positioned control cabinet unit and an optional telescopic lifting column that carries the robot are stationed on a mobile frame equipped with castors. The palletizer, which is thus extremely compact, requires comparatively little space and can be used flexibly in your company wherever it is needed.
Particularly interesting: In addition to the automation components, the Palletizing Kit can be individually expanded with further peripherals and accessories from our portfolio – e.g. with a vision system for position and location detection. An intralogistic connection of the pallet locations to product feeding conveyors or to a driverless transport system is also possible.
Certification as a Universal Robots+ Application Kit identifies the palletizing solution from Dahl Automation and HAHN Robotics as a “Plug & Produce” automation system especially suitable for Cobot use. For loads over 10 kg, further versions with larger robots such as the brand new Yaskawa HC20 are in preparation.
VARIO TIP® - Waldorf Technik
The VARIO TIP® system from Waldorf Technik is the patented and worldwide leading system concept, for example in the production of pipette tips. These products are laboratory consumables that must fulfil high quality requirements and they demand cavity sorting in the packaging unit to guarantee delivery reliability and patient safety in every case. With the VARIO TIP® system production runs completely cavity sorted for maximum efficiency and safety.
VARIO TIP® stands out with peak values in manufacturing with cycle times of 3.8 seconds and high cavity numbers up to 128. The VARIO TIP® system is characterized by its unsurpassed level of freedom for different tool configurations and packaging units. The automation system takes on all basic functions such as take-out, transfer, change pattern, buffering and filling. In addition, the system includes a large number of unique functionalities depending on customer specific needs. This includes camera inspections, cavity-sorted replacement of bad parts, filter assembly and customized packaging of the finished parts.
The VARIO TIP® FSS system with its slimline design opens up the market to MedTec injection moulders in new performance classes, without the need for more cleanroom space. FSS means “Floor Space Saving” – the outstanding advantage of the VARIO TIP® FSS over the standard VARIO TIP® model lies in the extremely reduced surface requirements. Through skilful arrangement of the buffer surfaces needed to separate the cavities, Waldorf Technik has succeeded in once more halving the area required by the basic system. Naturally enough, tool and product quality are maintained, as are functionality and variability.
xPacker - WEMO
WEMO xPacker is a completely new concept for the handling and packing of boxes on pallets, providing an industrial logistics solution for material handling. The system consists of a robot, incoming conveyor and integrated safety guarding, making it ready for easy “plug-in” directly after the out coming conveyor belt from the moulding machine or within a centralized logistics department. All types of boxes or packages can be handled with a unique vacuum gripper, which can detect the size and selectively use the necessary vacuum channels. Due to the easy and intuitive programming through the WIPS handling software, less knowledge is required to operate this unit in an efficient way.
WSV spray valve - Walther Systemtechnik
The electric universal spray valve for reliable and consistent application of low to medium viscosity media combines smart technology in the smallest space. With integrated electronics for control, monitoring and evaluation, Ethernet-based bus system, four DIOs for connecting peripheral devices, temperature control and pressure sensor for analyzing the process pressure curve, the spray valve offers maximum flexibility, user-friendliness and process reliability in application. It is suitable for both intermittent and continuous application of different media (e.g. oils, release agents, paints, greases, etc.). Since no additional control technology, software or programming is required for integration, this is done in a cost- and time-saving manner. Direct access via web interface also enables quick and easy commissioning as well as flexible parameterization using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Additional features such as the control of the atomizing air via a proportional pressure valve (the control system otherwise required for this is omitted), the built-in pushbutton for manual actuation and the subsequent expandability via upgrade round off the extensive performance features of this new valve type. Due to its very compact dimensions, it can be integrated not only into new plants and systems, but just as easily into existing ones.
