M.A.i's assembly lines for park lock actuators offer customised assembly and testing lines for the production of a wide variety of actuators and drives, especially parking lock actuators. 
The process modules can include a wide variety of assembly and testing processes and are interlinked with a goods carrier circulation system to form turnkey assembly and testing lines. Processes used include pressing (blank and worm/motor shaft into the housing), inserting (thrust washers into the housing), greasing (worm and bearings), laser welding (cover with housing), EOL testing, leak testing and marking by DMC laser (IO finished parts) or label (NIO components). The packaging of the finished parts, the insertion of the raw parts (housing, motor) and the greasing and pre-assembly of the PCB into the housing are solved by manual workstations. The assembly line contains 20 automatic stations.
