Application Spotlight: Drive belt assembly in washing machine production

Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators and other large household appliances are manufactured in complex, highly automated manufacturing processes.
But even in predominantly manual production and assembly processes, individual process steps can also be effectively automated. One example is the quality inspection of the drive belt assembly in a washing machine production.

Process control in metalforming and stamping

In Metalworking a significant part of the products are realized by forming and stamping processes, especially for series applications. The monitoring technology for press control has achieved a remarkable progress within the last years.

Optimized cycle rates lead to increased productivity and output. At the same time, there is a rising risk of asset damage, especially if unexpected errors occur. Automated protection of the tools and dies helps to increase OEE. Sensors for process monitoring are key elements.
