Title
(EN) ASSEMBLY MATERIAL LOGISTICS SYSTEM AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉS DE LOGISTIQUE DE MATÉRIAU D'ASSEMBLAGE
Abstract
(EN)
System devices and methods for logistical handling and transfer of components and consumable assembly materials to support assembly or manufacturing operations. Through use of a transport vehicle having first and second container supports, the method allows in a component storage area and an assembly area, the transport vehicle both engaging or picking up a full or empty container and disengaging or depositing a full or empty container. In an alternate example, two separate transport vehicles can coordinatingly move together to engage or pick up a full or empty container and disengage or deposit a full or empty container in the component storage area or assembly area.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système, des dispositifs et des procédés de manipulation et le transfert logistiques de composants et de matériaux d'assemblage consommables pour supporter des opérations d'assemblage ou de fabrication. Grâce à l'utilisation d'un véhicule de transport ayant des premier et second supports de récipient, le procédé peut s'appliquer dans une zone de stockage de composants et une zone d'assemblage, le véhicule de transport mettant en prise ou saisissant un récipient plein ou vide et libérant ou déposant à la fois un récipient plein ou vide. Dans un autre exemple, deux véhicules de transport séparés peuvent se déplacer de manière coordonnée l'un par rapport à l'autre pour mettre en prise ou saisir un récipient plein ou vide et libérer ou déposer un récipient plein ou vide dans la zone de stockage de composants ou la zone d'assemblage.
