audi   New orders by Audi Neckarsulm

ROFA will realize new electrified monorail systems for Audi Necksarsulm - "front wheel arch" and "rear floor", as well as "inner side panels with clip station".

The EMSs "front wheel" transport parts from the application system to the base frame and consider a buffer of 25 cycles each. The scope includes 500 m rail system, 25 vehicles with carriers, 8 switches, 3 lifting stations, 5 loading fixations, 5 vehicle positionings and 4 repair areas.

The EMSs "rear floor" unloads the floor parts off the application system and transfers them to the accumulating conveyors, robots take delivery off the EMSs and store them. The systems include 360 m rail system, 30 vehicles with carriers, 8 switches, 4 lifting stations, 2 robots and 2 accumulating conveyors. The systems "inner side panels with clip station" consists of 2 EMS which transport left and right side panels from the application system to the accumulating conveyors. Following to that, the parts are transfered to a skid system by robot. The project will be jointly realized with our subsidiary ROFA-Lehmer and includes 250 m rail system, 12 vehicles with carriers, 6 switches, 2 lifting stations, as well as 2 roller conveyors, 1 turn table, 2 robots, 4 accumulating conveyors and 2 additional robots with bonding function.

SOP will be end of May 2007.
