Abstract [en]

The screw fastening method is widely used in manufacturing industry. Still, as it comes to automated solutions, special designs are often required.The current work consists of a feasibility study for the automation of the existing system based on the screw-fastening of the housing parts of electrical enclosures at ABB Kabeldon.A simulation using RobotStudio attends to provide answers to the success of the screw in-sertion and define specific requirements of the tool according to the enclosure design. As part of the outlined solution, a tool offsetting the driving of the screw has been designed in collaboration with Dessouter Tools according to the dimensional requirements of the task. A simulation based on the tool has been realised which shows no collisions nor reachability issues.Other requirements of the process automation are discussed. As underlined, it is difficult to be conclusive regarding the success of a full automation. Issues resulting from the galvanizing process are concern as it can result in mismatches and redundant errors in the automated screw insertion procedure and consequently jeopardize the reliability of the process. Only tests on real scale can satisfactory answer the reliability of the system.This work is set as a base for further discussion on the related subject and a support to consider implications of the implementation of the screw fastening method. Further investi-gations should be made.
