Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) Marking Automation on BIW Line
Therefore, our client, a leading Automotive manufacturer wanted to automate the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) marking process. The Client aimed to eliminate manual intervention and use a single system for multiple models to be manufactured on the same BIW line. That’s where Fine Handling’s team got in action.
Fine Handling suggested two options to the customer. First, an Industrial Manipulator based system. Second, Special Purpose Machine with slider arrangement mounted with VIN marking machine. The customer chose the second option as it involved minimum or no human intervention.
