New step conveyor
- ZSL 151


Automatic Weber screwdriving systems ensure tough body assembly for Audi TT.

The latest RSF automatic screwdriving systems, developed and manufactured by Weber, are playing an important role on the new Audi TT production line in Ingolstadt, Germany. In particular, the RSF systems are being used as part of an innovative method of fixing vehicle body panels, using flow drill screws rather than rivets or welding, that enables tough joints to be achieved faster and more efficiently, without affecting the strength or long term integrity of the vehicle.

New Weber Step-Conveyor

The latest Step-conveyor uses a simple process flow, with components being filled into the bowl as bulk material. A stroke step transfers the parts to the exit track, where the parts are aligned on this linear conveyor, then selected by an escapement and fed to the screwdriving unit.

Features include:

  • Stainless steel bowl and slider.
  • Dirt is kept to a minimum.
  • Ideal for parts with coatings, paint finishes or delicate surfaces.
  • High output (e.g. 5,000 parts/hour for a M4x30 screw).
  • Low vibration exit track, minimal vibration, low noise level.
  • Suitable for screws, bolts, nuts, etc.
  • Integrated flexibly programmable - PLC and pneumatics govern screwdriving unit, feeding system and screwing process control.
