Abstract

In this study, the analysis studies carried out to assist the design stages of the part transfer line to be used in an automobile factory and the experiences gained from these analysis studies are emphasized. These experiences are very important in similar product developments in industrial design. Design and analysis studies carried out prior to manufacturing ensure that production can be carried out without any problems. For this reason, special importance should be given to the design stages in the process and alternative solutions should be created by revising the design in every aspect. Analysis studies should be carried out to select the best design among these solutions. The finite element approach, which is the approach used by today's special analysis software, was preferred in this study. Many analyses were carried out on the model whose boundary conditions were determined and the real-life behaviour of the design was foreseen. In the analysis studies, modal analyses and structural displacements were carried out in order to understand the dynamic behaviours and the stresses will not exceed certain limits. A finite element based simulation software was used in the analysis studies. Here, the importance of design experiences based on past experiences has emerged in the optimization of the design.

The design steps to be presented in the paper and the analysis results obtained through the design were also very useful in the prototype manufacturing phase and the transfer line was safely demonstrated. As a result of the trials, the transfer line was delivered to the customer and still fulfils its duty safely.
