In diesem Beitrag wird die systematische Entwicklung einer Schraubeinheit für Industrieroboter vorgestellt, mit derer Hilfe ein Roboter die Demontage von Elektromotoren vornehmen kann. Aufgrund der Anwendung im Remanufacturing, haben die Elektromotoren bereits einen Lebenszyklus durchlaufen und zeichnen sich durch ungewisse Produktzustände aus. Der Schraubeffektor ist unabhängig davon im Stande, verschiedene Schrauben zu lösen und dabei Messwerte aufzunehmen.

An increase in the sales number of battery electric vehicles within the last year can be recorded. At the end-of-life these vehicles require a reliable disassembly for recycling or remanufacturing. On the one hand, drivetrain components of those vehicles contain valuable resources and thus are mainly relevant for recycling or remanufacturing. On the other hand, the automated disassembly of especially electric motors and Li-ion battery systems encloses major challenges. Especially the high number of variants and the unknown specifications and conditions of the components are challenging points for the disassembly system. Conventional automated disassembly systems provide limited flexibility and adaptability for the disassembly of these products. Within this contribution two robot-based flexible disassembly systems are systematically derived for Li-ion battery modules and supplementary electric motors. Both products are analysed and the product-specific challenges and requirements are identified. The state of the art regarding flexible disassembly systems is captured using the methodology of a morphological box. Four subsystems are identified: Kinematic, Tools, Workpiece fixation, Safety system. Based on the results, concepts for disassembly systems for both Li-ion battery modules and supplementary electric motors are developed and presented in detail. Especially the structure and functionality of both systems are explained. This is followed by an assessment of the approaches and an identification of limitations as well as possible optimization potentials.

Robot based remanufacturing of valuable products is commonly perceived as promising field in future in terms of an efficient and globally competitive economy. Additionally, it plays an important role with regard to resource-efficient manufacturing. The associated processes however, require a reliable non-destructive disassembly. For these disassembly processes, there is special robot periphery essential to enable the tasks physically. Unlike manufacturing, within remanufacturing there are End-of-Life (EoL) products utilized. The specifications and conditions are often uncertain and varying. Consequently the robot system and especially the periphery needs to adapt to the used product, based on an initial examination and classification of the part. State of the art approaches provide limited flexibility and adaptability to the disassembly of electric motors used in automotive industry. Especially the geometrical shape is a limiting factor for using state of the art periphery for remanufacturing. Within this contribution a new kind of flexible clamping device for the disassembly of EoL electrical motors is presented. The robot periphery is systematically developed
