This report describes a typical example of mechanized and partly automated production within the area component assembly at the Saab-Scania cab facility at Oskarshamn. The example that has been chosen describes the assembly line for floor panel assemblies. In this section well-developed automation of the welding process is applied employing e.g. micro-computer controlled robots. Furthermore, fixtures and transport installations have been mechanized as well as partly automated. The result of this is 100% flexibility in the manufacturing sequence, more consistent quality (operator independence), shorter lead times in the workshop, shorter production time per unit and less tied capital in inventory.
