Seal Application

For the seal to last.
Seals are an important quality criterion in automobile construction. Seals of many shapes and forms may be found on doors and hatches, also on panorama sliding roofs. This means that the length of a seal must be specifically adjusted and the seal correspondingly fitted. thyssenkrupp System Engineering is a globally active system partner for the application of pliable components. Our engineers have for more than twenty years been working on new solutions offering more efficient and flexible assembly.

We offer the optimal hemming method for every product and process. Depending on component size and line cycle time, we are talking tabletop, roller hemming or special hemming systems. Especially the combination of different processes, i.e. hybrid hemming, constitutes one of the most efficient technologies for technical and economic optimization of the process.

Laser Welding Solutions

One head, many capabilities. Looking to reduce vehicle weight, improve bodywork rigidity or optimize the passive safety of vehicles? – laser welding provides the solution. We at thyssenkrupp System Engineering build compact and flexible bodywork laser welding systems. We are going one step further with the development of the laser grip head – it welds aluminum as well as zinc-plated and ultra high strength bodywork sheet metal, thus extending the application range of the procedure.

Framing Systems

Body framing means joining and welding of roof and side panels to the underbody. Here we are talking about the core of Car body production. There are essentially three issues which we, together with our customers, need to resolve every time: variable production of a wide range of models of different dimensions while ensuring short cycle times. This is a challenge to make our engineering heart beat faster, especially in terms of this kind of combination.

Marriage System

The installation of the drive train is one of the most demanding tasks in automobile production, because the body and chassis are being connected. So called marriage lines are responsible to that process step – they are the interface between car body build and powertrain assembly.

LCA Part Feeding Systems

Automatisms for optimal process flow. LCA stands for Lean Clever Automation, i.e. provisioning of many small automatisms supporting process flow and optimally also saving energy. At thyssenkrupp System Engineering this means: Using LCA systems to introduce individual components into a manufacturing plant, independent of the cycle.
