Development of an experimental winder for complex edge protection profiles
In a common project, the “Zentrum für Mechatronik und Automatisierungstechnik GmbH” (ZeMA) and SaarGummi Group designed an experimental winder, which secures the coiling process of complex edge protection profiles. The project is founded by the EU (European Regional Development Foundation) and Saarland foundation. For SaarGummi the transfer of the SealMatic endless technology, which has long been established for vehicle doors in the body area, means a significant technical lead. The experimental winder consists of a sensitive robot system as well as a novel final effektor. Compared to conventional winding systems, such as used in simple door seals, it is possible to roll up complex profiles with the innovative experimental winder.
