Samvardhana Motherson PeguformGermany

Peguform Neustadt

With 8,000 employees worldwide the SMP Group plays a leading role as an accredited developer and series supplier of high-quality plastic parts for the automotive industry.

Its product range covers both the interior and exterior areas of private passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

Optimisation of transport and buffering systems with regard to process linking was realised at the site in Neustadt.

Project aim

In addition to creating more storage space for interior door trims, the different production processes had to be decoupled and the carriers to be developed for this should be suitable for use with all future trim types. It was also necessary to provide gentle transport of the sensitive products.

Solution

Peguform received an automatic trolley system with customised Dürkopp trolleys. The carriers were lined to provide protection for the goods and can carry 12 interior door trims at a time. The additional storage area that was created is located above the production area on a platform walkway construction and is connected to production via lifting –lowering stations. The interior door trims coming from production can now be moved via a lift into the automatic storage system on the first level for interim storage, where they remain until called up. When this happens, they are returned to the assembly area on the lower level. Provisioning is effected here in exact sequence and fully automatically.

Project features

Decoupling of different production processes

Creation of storage capacity without compromising production areas

Flexible carriers that can also be used for any future interior door trim types

Gentle material transport

Solution implemented

Trolley technology

The 763 trolley system is the classic solution for hanging goods conveyor technology. Robust and durable it can convey and distribute goods over long distances either manually or automatically. In addition to its proven standard configuration for hanging garments, this rail-based system can be customised for applications in other branches. In the automotive sector, for example, this system is used for transporting cockpit components, interior door trims or car seat covers.
