English term or phrase:to feed pallets
In order to feed pallets for chassis
assembly in a mixed production plant
with short cycle times and space
limitations, Auto 5000 in Wolfsburg
chose an innovative concept:
a dynamic, fully-automated retrieval
system, very quickly designed and
developed by Siemens. Initial results
have been very positive, and the
system was chosen to be the
central exhibit at the Volkswagen
booth in Hall 17 of the forthcoming
concept developed by Auto 5000, responsible
for putting 5,000 unemployed auto
workers back to work in the automotive
industry, is currently being extended in
Wolfsburg with the production of a new
model at the end of 2007.
The plant management stipulated that
Auto 5000 would have to manufacture the
new model in its present factory, meaning
that the existing production equipment
would have to be used for both the current
Touran production and for the new model.
A time frame of only three months was
available for a complete reorganization of
the production facilities.
Wanted – compact
“high-speed retrieval system”
was a major challenge. The space restrictions
meant that a conventional solution
involving a buffer line was impossible.
Siemens therefore proposed a fully automatic
two-row pallet retrieval system
with three storage levels. The system uses
two central rack feeders with longitudinal
travel to randomly store the pallets and
feed them into the assembly process at the
This system, in operation for a year now,
has proven successful in the Touran production,
and has also passed initial field
tests for the mixed assembly.
