Robotic inserts installation is an assembly operation which has many advantages.
First of all, it is possible to increasingly automate the installation of inserts; today this operation remains marginal because of the investments necessary.
Then, this new method (robotic inserts installation & insertion) considerably reduces the installation time of the inserts and the associated work in progress. There is no longer a need to wait for the panel glue to cure before moving, and it is even possible to directly attach components.
Moreover, thanks to robotic inserts installation , it is possible to control surface flushness of the panel.
This solution, proposed by the company SECAM FIXATION (designer of this patented insert) and GEBE2 (developer of the installation automation) today opens new horizons in the field of assembly on composite or metal sandwich panels.
GEBE2 provides a robotic cell from preparation to installation of inserts, with a simplified installation process using the SECAMnida® from SECAM.
Our robotic inserts installation effector carries out the drilling and crimping operations of the insert, the placement of the adhesive and optionally includes the orbital drilling.
Simplified structural design
Economy of internal reinforcements
Mechanical strength equivalent to or better than standards
Lightened metal insert
Overall weight gain
1/4 the Installation time. 2x less installation steps compared to current methods.
Decrease in work in progress
Strong overall productivity gain
Immediate handling of the panel
No final rework or finishing
