Frequently, our clients turn to us to deal with particular challenges in which the usual answers aren't fit for purpose.
Throughout our history we have faced this type of request in various sectors of use with highly customized solutions.
Our specific know-how in the automotive interiors sector has allowed us to carry out numerous projects of Assembly Stations and EOL Quality check systems with the presence of different technologies.
The applications that can be implemented include:
- ultrasonic plastic welding systems
- metering systems
- artificial vision systems
- mechanical measuring systems, high-precision profilometers and lasers
- test benches
- palletisation / palletiser robots
- AGVs (automatic guided vehicles) and LGVs (laser guided vehicles).
Some of our Special Machines success stories:
Logistics Solutions with Automatic and Laser Guided Vehicles
The new LGV's Taiprora is the result of over 15 years of experience with AGVs throughout Europe. It is a made in Italy product, completely customizable. Innovate your production with Taiprora's AGVs
Vegetable washing and calibration machine
For a food corporate, we have designed and built a machine for washing vegetables.
Smartplant: Automotive IP Assembly Line + EOL
Taiprora designed and delivered a semi-automatic assembly line + full-automatic EOL check and traceability system to assemble cockpits in a third-party automotive corporate.
Automatic Quality Control Machine
An innovative Automatic End of Line Cockpit Check Machine we have recently designed, developed and delivered for an Automotive corporate.
Vision System to check assembled components
For a well-known Automotive Brand we designed and developed a custom Vision System to check assembled components.
Assembly and test workstation
For a well-known Automotive Brand we have created a series of 14 workstations with tracking management and quality controls, for the assembly and testing of the door panels of a well-known car model in the B segment.
4.0 machine to assemble/disassemble turbocompressors for petrol, diesel and electric engines.
R&D project for Industry 4.0 that integrates the connection between physical and digital systems with a complex Big Data analysis using the most advanced technologies: Web Supervisor and SmartGlass, MachineLearning and Conditional Monitoring applied to predictive maintenance, SensorWear and BigData for dyadic man - cobot).
Artificial vision system for real-time quality control by a collaborative robot
Within an automotive seat production line, a fully automated real-time quality control system was introduced through a collaborative robot system equipped by sensors and cameras, with consequent zeroing of production waste.
Integrated automatic granty palletizer
For a global enterprise operating in beauty & personal care, we designed and built a 3-axis Cartesian automatic palletizing system (granty palletizer): 26 m long Y axis, 6,100 m long X axis, 3.20 m long axis. Integration with production, LGV, wrapper and automatic warehouse.
Automotive 4.0 : timing belts measurement machine.
For an enterprise in the rubber segment, note we have designed and made a timing belts measurement machine. The machine, which consists of 2 axes, simulates the engine's performance, while laser sensors measure all the product characteristics, both dimensional (thickness, height and width of the toe and tooth height), as well as dynamics (derives from the belts on the pulleys and belt slackening). The added value of this system is its software, capable of assessing the angles of the rubber that normally points to signal acquisition problems due to the intrinsic characteristics of the rubber itself, as deformation and reflection.
Collaborative Smartbench: Automotive Assembly Workstation
For an enterprise in Automotive area, we have designed and built an Industry 4.0 project, named “Collaborative Smartbench”: a series of assembling benches for the Porsche Cayenne interior panels. A step towards innovation is the use of a Universal Robots’ collaborative robot: thanks to its compactness and axle handling at almost 360° it is ideal for this application. This choice has allowed us to offer our customer higher quality and an effective reduction in security costs.
Ultrasonic Welding Machine: Robotised ultrasonic welding system
The system, created for a multinational leader in the automotive component sector, consists of a complete automated welding line, using ultrasounds, for parts on panels made of plastic for automotive doors. The robots and structure for welding are equipped with ultrasonic sonotrodes.
Automotive belt laser measurement bench with measurement management software
In various plants of a leading multinational automotive component producer, Taiprora produced laser belt measurement benches and at the same time created software to manage the laser measurements integrated with the production management system.
Special oil automatic metering system
For a multinational rubber component producer, Taiprora has created a turnkey automatic metering system for special oils (mechanical, electrical, software design).
Revamping automotive door panel welding line
The project, carried out for a multinational leader in the automotive component sector, consisted of adapting the line for updated door panel model requirements, mainly by remaking the automation and control system and creating a new panel pallet locking system.
Large-diameter pipe production plant: creation of water testing inspection system
The system concerned was created by Taiprora for a multinational in the sector for carrying out water tests on pipes with large diameters and flanges at the ends. It dealt with designing and producing the entire system including the mechanical, electronic, sensor and software components.
