Family of accumulating conveyors is growing│ Precision rotary table TGC 1200│ U-clamp replaces V-clamp │ Electric mini clamp

Our proven family of AFS accumulating conveyors, one of the leading suppliers of pallet accumulating conveyors, has recently been expanded. New system solutions provide for increased flexibility by allowing to convey around the corner, integrating bend elements and lifts and overcoming gradients. One special highlight is the accumulating conveyor without pressurized air featuring electric actuators and stopping points. The patented pallet coupling is another option which not only reduces the number of stopping points, but also the power required – contributing to energy efficiency in conveyor technology where motors often run permanently -  day and night.

Skid AGVs replace stationary roller conveyors in truck manufacturing

A plant manufacturing trucks in South America has decided to use skid AGVs instead of stationary roller conveyor belts. The skid AGVs delivered by our partner Sinova accommodate the entire car body and take it to the individual roller conveyor stations as required. The video attached gives a short impression.

Belt instead of chain

The chain is the centrepiece of the AFS accumulating conveyor. This simple and robust drive element has been tried and tested in several thousands of applications of TÜNKERS/APM systems used in body-in-white assembly. And, by the way, most competitors use this technology as well.

Clamp-and-center unit MCP 80

The fact that a large number of variants are produced in a single plant results in an increasing number of tools and fixtures that have to be changed with short set-up times. Robust and at the same time precise clamp-and-center systems are a decisive factor for the availability of these change mechanisms.

Pin clamp with additional pin retracting unit

Pin clamps are a common means to position the entire underbody assembly in the geo-station. For higher precision, these stations include up to eight clamping points to position the individual assemblies. When it comes to lifting the complete assembly, however, this is unfavourable because any warped parts may result in damaging the entire component.

AGV from TÜNKERS in cooperation with SINOVA

TÜNKERS has been manufacturing electric vehicles for more than 30 years now. However, these vehicles were geared for rehabilitation and airport logistics, and not for the automotive industry.

Invitation to our Symposium May 18th-19th 2017

AUTOMATION AUTONOM Experts agree that autonomous cars are what the future holds in store for us. Here, the question is no longer “whether” they will materialize, but rather “when”.

c³ - Clever Clamp Calculator

The Clever Clamp Calculator – or c³ – is a tool that assists design engineers in finding the right system design.
As a matter of fact, c³ includes three tools. Tool One and Two help you select the right pin retractor and clamp sizes in relation to the component, clamping task, etc.

Toggle-joint clamp as a “motor“ for moving, lifting, rotating …

The toggle-joint clamp has become a universal tool in body-in-white assembly lines. So why not use this standard as a drive for other functions in body-in-white assembly?
