Through its Metal Cutting | Composites business line, Fives delivers two automated laser welding lines, to one of the biggest automotive transmission system manufacturers in China.

These entirely automated laser lines used the welding of pinions/clutches for manual gearboxes, with a total capacity of 1,800,000 parts per year. Each line will produce 7 different models. The parts are transferred using gantries associated with conveyors, produced by the Fives Automation teams.

These lines are designed around standard Fives modules that can carry out different functions : assembly, preheating, welding, cooling, and 100% inspection of the weld quality, using an Ultrasound process, and the parts’ geometry.
