SCHMIDT® Cartesian assembly machine
On the basis of high-precision SCHMIDT® ServoPress modules
in the press force range of 0.5 – 100 kN, a Cartesian assembly machine
has been developed, which can be used for fully automated assembly
processes in many sectors. The flexible assembly of components with
different dimensions in one load becomes reality.
- High-precision assembly technology in 1/100 mm range
- The workstation is equipped with the latest palletised systems
for optimum efficiency
- The workstation control system can store many data sets for
each type of product to be assembled: reducing the need to re-program
for each product type.
- Freely parameterizable, sequential scanning of the working
- Automatic tool change
- Traceability and documentation complying with ISO 9000
- Statistic Process Control SPC online
This new development is intended for users who want to create fully
automated, highly productive assembly workstations.
Instead of the labourious loading of single parts, workpiece carriers
are loaded or unloaded to the machine. This reduces loading time
The workpiece carrier can contain different components. The Cartesian
assembly machine scans the working area sequentially, whereby it
is possible to carry out automatic tool changes. A linear table
moves the workpiece carrier in X direction. The ServoPress module
that presses in Z direction is moved in Y direction via a gantry
so that any points in the 3D working area can be accessed via the
The flexible data set management of the SCHMIDT® PressControl
5000 allows setting up the machines quickly and efficiently.
A data set change, for example, if workpiece carriers are loaded
with different pieces, can be carried out fully automated from the
operating panel. A mechanical retrofitting of the machine is completely
With regard to intelligent assembly, documentation and Statistic
Process Control SPC, the machine disposes of all tools that are
provided by the control unit SCHMIDT® PressControl 5000.
