In the body assembly robots are used for welding and also for material handling. In a robot assembly cell, where for instance car doors are produced, at least a few robots use vacuum in handling operations. The sheets are still oily but the speeds and cycle times are much slower than in metal stamping. Safety and energy-saving devices are important for efficient operation.
