Abstract [en]

Parker Hannifin Manufacturing Sweden AB is an international company with manufactory sites all around the world. The site in Trollhättan is part of the Pump & Motor Division Europe. The Factory has worked a lot with automating the manufacturing section. Many robots are implemented in the factory to produce the simple parts which need to be assembled to interduce the last product. Parker are now interested in starting the process of automating the assembly stations for the 3 products they produce in this site. The three products are Truck pumps, fixed and variable displacement pumps (LBP), variable hydraulic motors (VM) and fixed hydraulic motors (FM). Each one of the three types has different sizes and different series.

This work focuses on analysing the current system which consists of seven assembly station, 101, 102, 201, 202, 203, 301 and 302. After analysing the current system, a work on finding the potentials for moving from manual to semi-or automated stations for each station is presented. Seven potentials were found. The first potential which handle a bout a central pressing robot cell is a common potential for all the stations, and the other potentials are for each station separately. Testing and validation for all the potentials where the automation can be implemented and started with, the cycle time for the operations and the productivity, the workspace and material handling in addition to the level of the ergonomics for these stations.

The complexity of these solutions, the advantages and disadvantages and a safety analyses are also presented. And how to optimize the current system for reaching a high level of automation is discussed.
