Abstract

EN This work presents the multi-variant robotization of the process of sealing car radiators. Three design solutions have been proposed for the tank sealing station, in which the seal is applied on a stationary worktable, on a rotary positioner and on a belt conveyor. These solutions were compared in terms of process time, but also energy consumption. The energy optimization of robotic processes is one of the elements of effective production. First, a review of the use of industrial robots in assembly processes is provided and the structure of car radiators is presented. Next, the basic technological process of producing a car radiator is described, especially the process of applying a liquid gasket. Then, the designed robotic stations and conclusions from the simulations are presented, along with the selection of the most sustainable variant of the robotic station. The results of the simulations are useful in reducing the robot’s operating time and energy consumption while maintaining the appropriate process quality.
