Abstract

Over the years, e-mobility has scaled exponentially, specifically automobiles, and is seen as the future. In this paper, implementation of specific adaptive technologies into the assembly line has been performed and is presented in the form of case study. The architecture and model of these technologies utilised are presented and their benefits on assembly line. Thus, indication is proven towards building a highly flexible, adaptive and cost-effective assembly line. Evaluation techniques such as FMEA, tecnomatix simulation and level of automation (LoA) study are performed to prove the improvements in qualitative, adaptive and an increase in automation levels when compared to previous manual assembly. Furthermore, the variances in e-axles are depicted with reference to e-axles from eminent electric automobile manufacturers. This is followed with a generalised assembly procedure and a cost model for the e-axle assembly. The results depict the adaptability achieved along with cost benefits when compared to an automated assembly line.
