YOUR DIGITAL ASSISTANCE SYSTEM IN PRODUCTION

The ASSEMBLY FRIEND is a tool for 3D assembly instructions. This digital assistance system efficiently provides a wide range of digital information in production, quality assurance, maintenance, repair and installation. It enables complex products to be assembled, put into operation and repaired error-free in the shortest possible time.

COMMON PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES

The assembly of any type of product is, for the most part, conducted based on 2D drawings or assembly instructions in the form of pictures with text. Good and complete assembly instructions for complex products are very difficult to produce. Instructions can quickly become unclear or incomplete. As a result, assembly errors occur, quality is insufficient or the assembly time takes longer than planned. In addition, the training time for employees varies with highly complex instructions. If digital assistance systems are already being used, they often only function in a two-dimensional diagram.

PURPOSE, BENEFITS AND POTENTIALS OF THE DIGITAL ASSISTANCE SYSTEM

Supply of all assembly-relevant documents in one application. A clear, three-dimensional visualization and animation of each work step

The software runs on all operating systems and devices such as tablets, PCs or laptops using Windows, iOS or Android. The technology is very simple and easy to work with.

The software is optimized for assembly workers in manufacturing environments. It is very easy for your employees to be introduced to and become familiarized with the tool; and it enables them to work independently and, as a result, simplify internal processes.

A good 3D graphics card is quite sufficient. High performance through a powerful 3D engine & optimization of 3D models through a CAD converter.

 

 CAD knowledge is not necessary. The creation of instructions for variants and modifications is partially automated.

Optimize assembly sequences.

Import all common CAD data exchange formats – independent of the software provider.

Import additional information such as a photo, video or text.

The complete assembly process is digitally documented and can be retrieved at any time. This gives you a holistic overview. 

Create flawless, digitized results with the ASSEMBLY FRIEND and take your work environment to the next level.

THE ASSEMBLY FRIEND VIEWER –
PAPERLESS MANUFACTURING MADE EASY

The ASSEMBLY FRIEND VIEWER is a worker assistance system for production optimization, quality assurance, maintenance, repair and installation – especially in assembly and manufacturing. The software is used to display digital 3D work instructions and to document the work process or assembly step. Various functions are available in this solution to make your manufacturing paperless and to positively change and digitalize work processes.

With the ASSEMBLY FRIEND VIEWER, you not only create digital work instructions, but can also integrate all necessary information and media into the system. Process sequences can be individually adapted to your workers. This allows you to minimize errors within your assembly. In addition, you benefit from digital verification and process documentation (monitoring).

FUNCTIONS OF THE ASSEMBLY FRIEND VIEWER– IN DETAIL

  • Registers the order by scanning a barcode or QR code
  • 3D Step-by-step instructions
  • Output via monitor or other mobile devices
  • Prompts user for input after assembly steps via a button or foot switch
  • Digital documentation for traceability and transparency
  • Provides additional information as a photo or text (e.g. assembly instructions, production aids, tools, component information)
  • Simplifies order processes: Progress is displayed for the shift handover
  • Connection of tools, e.g. torque screwdrivers for checking deviations in target/ actual values

ASSEMBLY FRIEND COMPOSER –
CREATE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS EASILY

With our corresponding software, the ASSEMBLY FRIEND COMPOSER, you can create interactive, easy-to-understand 3D assembly instructions. The user can view 3D components individually and create animations that explain each work step very simply. For each work step, the tools and aids that are required can be displayed. All you need is the 3D CAD product data. Drawings, images and additional information from your previous 2D instructions can be transferred easily.

The software is designed so that employees in development, work preparation and production can create effective assembly instructions as quickly and successfully as possible, even without prior knowledge of working with 3D software. The assembly instructions can be adapted to the individual needs of your employees. For an efficient workflow, we connect ASSEMBLY FRIEND to your PDM, ERP or DMS. Assembly instructions for variants can be created partially automatically and thus save time.

FUNCTIONS OF THE ASSEMBLY FRIEND COMPOSER– IN DETAIL

  • Create assembly instructions (from parts list to 3D animated assembly instructions) easily
  • Add additional information to the assembly instructions easily, as text, photos, drawings and data sheets
  • Modify assembly instructions in case of product or process changes
  • Create assembly instructions for product variants automatically
  • Very good, visual representation of instructions and work steps
  • Automatic adjustment of the parts list in case of changes and transfer of unchanged process steps
  • Connection to the CAD/PLM database
  • Import all common 3D CAD formats
  • Standalone IT solution for immediate use
