Automation and human

The degree of human intervention in the assembly process varies based on factors such as automation level, task complexity, and industry requirements. Despite advancements in automation technology enabling increasingly autonomous processes, human oversight is often necessary for tasks requiring decision-making, dexterity, or problem-solving beyond current technology’s capabilities. Operators play a crucial role in monitoring and maintaining equipment, ensuring quality control, and addressing unexpected issues during production.

Operators interact with automated assembly lines primarily through monitoring, maintenance, and troubleshooting. They oversee operations, ensuring components are correctly fed into the system and machinery functions as intended. Routine maintenance tasks, such as cleaning equipment or replacing worn parts, are performed to prevent downtime and maintain optimal performance. When issues arise, operators diagnose and correct problems to keep the assembly line running smoothly. This interaction often involves using interface panels, SCADA and / or MES systems to adjust machine settings and communicating with maintenance personnel or engineers for complex issues.

Statistical process control for
real-time monitoring

Establishing quality standards and conducting checks at various assembly stages are crucial for ensuring product excellence. Implementing statistical process control within an MES system or within the HMI solution allows for real-time production monitoring, while traceability systems track component and product movement, facilitating root cause analysis and corrective actions. Continuous improvement initiatives optimize processes and product quality, supported by documentation and reporting to monitor performance metrics and ensure regulatory compliance.

We evaluate equipment suppliers based on extensive experience and stringent quality standards, prioritizing KPIs to ensure optimal performance and reliability. While we have preferred suppliers known for their quality and dependability, we remain flexible in integrating products from any supplier to meet the unique needs of each customer. This adaptable approach allows for solutions tailored to the specific requirements of each project, ensuring efficiency and overall performance.

Key Functionalities

Robotic screwdriving

Controlled screwdriving processes encompass both standard torque screwing and force control screwing with seating point detection. These processes smoothly transition from step feeding to sword feeding and provide options for standard mechanical screw gripping or vacuum screw feeding and gripping, ensuring adaptability across various screw types. The system is configurable for full or semi-automation, facilitating seamless integration into specific assembly lines.

Robot application

Specializing in the integration of various robots, the service encompasses comprehensive simulations for loads, reach, cycle times, and movements. Precision and speed take precedence, allowing for the handling of heavy loads surpassing human capabilities. Robots, spanning from 3-axis to 6-axis configurations, including collaborative robots, execute diverse pick & place applications. Notably, the self-correction operation mode enables autonomous return to desired operation stages, reducing the need for operator intervention.

Repress operation

The repress operation encompasses a variety of applications, from securing PCB connectors to refining the appearance of cosmetic display covers and retaining plates post-gluing. It is a prevalent process in manufacturing and assembly across industries such as electronics, automotive, and consumer goods. Employing mechanisms like servo drive systems, pneumatic cylinders, or pressure elements controlled by proportional valves, the repress operation can be customized to meet specific needs and standards.

Feeding mechanism

Bubble removal

Bubble removal involves the elimination of excess air, known as binding, from a given material. This operation can be executed through semi-automatic means, where the operator controls the bubble removal mechanism within the working area, or automatically using methods such as robot lamination or autoclave vacuum processes. Our expertise encompasses both soft-to-hard lamination and hard-to-hard lamination techniques within the bubble removal process.


The dispensing application addresses fluids or materials with various viscosity. It can be executed through volumetric dispensing, regulating the volume of dispensed material, or gravimetric dispensing, managing the weight of dispensed material. Operations are conducted utilizing either a static dispensing module or a module linked to a robotic or XYZ arm. Our capabilities encompass the entire process, from preparation and mixing to dispensing, testing, and cleaning.
