Comau has recently supported Hycan Automotive Technology Co. with a smart welding solution for its assembling line able to grant the multi-model manufacturing of new vehicles powered by alternative energy sources. Integrated by Hycan Hangzhou factory, this automated flexible production system can be used at random on four different platforms, it is fully compatible with the existing manufacturing plants and, currently, it is mass-producing, with an output of 60 units per hour, the 100% electric A06 Sedan and the 100% electric SUV Z03.
Comau engineers had to ascertain they were developing a highly flexible assembling and welding line, able to keep pace with the automotive company’s constantly evolving production requirements. The plant, in fact, besides facilitating the introduction, the adaptation and the scalability of new models, assures the utmost manufacturing flexibility to Hycan, also in the future.
The protagonist is the flexible high-precision Body-In-White assembling, with virtual commissioning technologies. Moreover, Comau has added a flexible servo-positioning mechanism to the transport system, to share in shortening the manufacturing cycle, meanwhile granting both scale economies and the capability of satisfying the diversification requirements of Hycan products.
