Customized wastegate mounting systems for turbochargers from ruhlamat are suitable for wastegate installation as a turbocharger assembly and for wastegate laser welding. Pneumatic or electrical functional tests are also integrated. Workpieces are turbine housings, wastegate control flaps, plate springs and positioning elements. Cycle times vary between 45 and 60 seconds. For flexible wastegate mounting on different turbocharger variants, the application-specific systems are equipped with tool changing systems. Welding process monitoring is realized with pyrometers, plate spring assemblies with their own monitoring. Code readers and DataMatrix codes allow the traceability of the components within the system.
Application of the customer-specific wastegate installation systems for turbochargers is the assembly of wastegates as a turbocharger assembly in the turbine housing. For example, control valves for temperature management and charge pressure regulation are mounted, laser-welded and function-tested. The user industry is the automotive supply industry.
In addition to single systems with a drawer system for manual loading, round table variants are available for loading by a worker or a robot. Feeding, concatenation and handling as well as assembly and test stations together with lasers and laser-proof housings and the control unit are combined in a customer-specific manner.
