Title
(EN) FLEXIBLE MODULAR ASSEMBLY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'ASSEMBLAGE MODULAIRE FLEXIBLE
Abstract
(EN) An automated manufacturing system that is flexible and scalable based on the needs of a manufacturing facility is provided. The manufacturing system includes one or more modular manufacturing units that are connected in series via a transport system. The modular manufacturing unit includes a base frame including a plurality of support members that are coupled to one or more feet; a main frame mounted on the base frame; a pair of opposed gantry support arms mounted on the main frame in a transverse direction, each gantry support arm including a rail; at least one gantry assembly slidably mounted across the rails of the gantry support arms in a longitudinal direction, each gantry assembly configured for performing a selected function or operation; and a transport system for conveying a device part through the modular manufacturing unit along the longitudinal direction for processing.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système de fabrication automatisé qui est flexible et extensible en fonction des besoins d'une installation de fabrication. Le système de fabrication comprend une ou plusieurs unités de fabrication modulaires qui sont reliées en série par l'intermédiaire d'un système de transport. L'unité de fabrication modulaire comprend un cadre de base comprenant une pluralité d'éléments de support qui sont accouplés à un ou plusieurs pieds; un cadre principal monté sur le cadre de base; une paire de bras de support de portique en regard montés sur le cadre principal selon une direction transversale, chaque bras de support de portique comprenant un rail; au moins un ensemble portique monté coulissant sur les rails des bras de support de portique selon une direction longitudinale, chaque ensemble portique étant conçu pour effectuer une fonction ou une opération choisie; et un système de transport pour transporter une partie de dispositif à travers l'unité de fabrication modulaire le long de la direction longitudinale à des fins de traitement.
