Basic 3D-Robot Sewing Unit KL 500

For Application of Decorative Seams to Automotive Interiors

Robot supported sewing process for manufacture of application specific
decorative seams for automotive interiors.

  • Dash boards
  • Door side panels
  • Arm rests

Fully automatic seam pattern correction via Vision System (correction
of material specific departure from the position).
Maximum reproducibility of the seams for highest demands on quality.


    Application of Decorative Seams to Automotive

    • Interiors
    • Dash boards
    • Door side panels
    • Arm rests
    • Industrial robot with additional, fully synchronous sewing axes
    • RS 562 1- or 2-needle double chain stitch column sewing head,
      stitch type: 401
    • IIndividual sewing head design (clearance and height of column)
      for processing of most varied dash board geometries
    • Rotary indexing table for overlapped procedure and highly efficient
      cell utilization
    • Tool changer for fully automatic exchange of various sewing
    • 3D-component support for material specific, reproducible positioning
      of ambitious interior components
    • Seam beginning and –end in the component with positioning ofthe thread ends at the material underside for simple automated
    • seam securing without manual interference
    • Vision System for registration of individual seam flows or characteristic path markers
    • Customer- or application specific design of the cell layout to achieve highest efficiency of the workflow
    • Linkage with leading and trailing manufacture processes
    • Integration of safety relevant quality monitoring systems, such as material recognition, color recognition, barcode recording,
    • slipped stitch recognition, loading monitoring etc.
    • Linkage to customers PPS-System
    • Application specific thread cutters, depending on costumers demands
    • Integration of additional features into the component support
    • Automatic template recognition in the loading area as well as triggering of additional features
    • Automatic template transport systems
    • Automatic part withdrawal systems
