Massiv Automated Systems specializes in the design, manufacture, build and install of fully integrated automated assembly lines. Since 1993 we have completed over 120 assembly lines for closures, body sides, rails and underbody parts. We have a wealth of production experience, know-how and the capability to ensure parts are manufactured to our customers requirements. Typically a process can include any of the following processes: Riveting, Hemming, MIG welding, Spot Welding, Laser Welding, Projection Welding or Liquid Transient Bonding (LTB). Our skilled workforce can support all tool needs, both new build and the maintenance of production tooling.
Type of Assembly Lines
Massiv Automated Systems specializes in providing automated assembly lines for almost all type of automotive body parts. Show below is an example of the different types of products and materials:
The complexity of an assembly line depends entirely on our customer’s requirements. Massiv Automated Systems estimating department works closely with our customers to provide a process that meets your requirements. We have processed lines with a stand alone robot and lines with over 100 robots.
The quantity per line might vary but our commitment is to provide you with a product and service that meets or exceeds your expectations.
A hemmer is used to hem then flatten the edge of an outer panel (e.g. deck lid, hood) over the edge of the inner panel in a two stage process. Massiv Automated Systems has developed a press hemmer and a robot-mounted roller hemmer to ensure that we are able to hem virtually any shape or sized panel.
The hemmer consists of specific common units that are used on all hemmers. Component specific items, such as the anvil cassette and spider are then secured on the hemmer. The hemmer is able to complete pre hemming and final hemming at one station and has a nominal hemming force of 2000 N/cm2.
The hemmer can be used for a particular part or designed to accommodate a wide and varied number of cassettes to complete a set of closures for a particular model or for a number of separate model variants. The cassettes are designed to be removed and loaded in the shortest amount of time. Each cassette holds all of the part specific elements therefore eliminating any change to the main tool.
Massiv Automated Systems has developed a roller hemmer that provides an alternative solution to the more conventional method of table top hemming. The big advantage of utilizing roller hemming technology is that the rollers can complete a hem in tight areas, which typically cannot be completed on a press hemmer. A roller hammering package consists of a robot-mounted roller head onto which several rollers are secured.
The panels to be hemmed are located in an anvil, which has the form of the panel machined into it. The robot is used to position the roller head on the edge of the panel then hem the edge of the panel making successive passes. Depending on the cycle time a roller hemming cell can consist of one or more robots that work in unison to complete the hem.
