Automation of complex assembly task - The installation of a small spring in a product

​Examiner: Jonas Fredriksson, Dept of Electrical Engineering


Today, things are shipped from all over the world in a large scale, this is not sustain-able in the long term. Therefore we need to keep production local and find solutions that stops offshoring and brings back production that already have been offshored. Part of this solution is to be able to automate tasks that would traditionally have been offshored to be performed manually in low-wage countries. In this thesis, one such task is investigated, the installation of a small spring in a product. The possibility of automating the installation is first examined to identify what the difficulties are and finally how they could be solved, resulting in a working prototype that can be implemented in production with only minor changes.
