Vehicle body marking

Fully automatic marking of vehicle bodies within an assembly line.


After being painted, the vehicle bodies are delivered to the labelling station on a workpiece conveyor. The label is applied to the A-pillar by means of a five-axis buckling arm robot. Due to the tolerance of the body on the workpiece conveyor, the precise position on the A-pillar must be determined by a corresponding sensor system. To prevent potential damage from the direct application of the label, it is blown onto the body by a blow-box. The label has been specially developed for this application and, after final assembly, can be removed without trace.
