Clean cut and high process speed: FIPA GmbH (http://www.fipa.com) has integrated a cutting station in the production lines for precise separation of the spreader of center pillar trim in medium-sized cars. A robot with a gripper removes the two center pillar trims still connected to each other and moves to the two stationary air nippers. Each cutting tong is moved individually. The pillar trims, which are now separated from each other, are only put down the conveyer belt after the spreader is completely cut off. FIPA scores with this solution thanks to full service: advice, component selection, setup, operation startup and on-site service all come from one source.
