Modern production systems require a modular configuration to meet the growing demand for flexibility in processing from workpiece to workpiece to adapt as quickly as possible.
Set-up and tool-change times must be minimized, which increasingly also necessitates the automatic separating and linking of entire mechanical groups. Especially in the automotive industry, in their automatic welding and assembly lines, the CYTEC tensioning systems with their integrated indexing, connecting and docking functions, plus their positive locks, play a central role.
Major vehicle manufacturers have utilized the systems very successfully for years to support a safe operating environment and flexible and cost-effective production. This ensures a stable and reproducible process with very little maintenance effort.
