Automatic manufacturing cells

Agile manufacturing units for optimized stator production

The modular product portfolio of Schaeffler ELMOTEC STATOMAT allows individual machines or production steps to be flexibly combined into agile production units. Fully automatic winding, insertion, and forming can be combined flexibly with automatic loading and unloading that the highest output quantities can be realized economically. At the same time, the manufacturing cells are optimized for fast and ergonomic set-up without compromising on safety.

Modular production for maximum agility
  • Winding
  • Insertion
  • Cover strip assembly
  • Joining
  • Forming
  • Round tables or gripper systems
Fully automated winding

Whether flyer winding, segment winding or needle winding, the automatic manufacturing cells from Schaeffler ELMOTEC STATOMAT are based on our extensive and modular equipment portfolio. This allows agile manufacturing units to be tailored precisely to customer requirements.

Insertion, forming and integrated assembly of cover strips for slot insulation

After the winding has been produced, it is automatically assembled into the supplied stack of metal sheets. The perfectly coordinated processes guarantee the highest filling ratios without damaging the wire. To finally fix the assembled winding, the cut-to-size cover strips are inserted directly after insertion (and intermediate forms if required).


The automation of the agile manufacturing units is carried out with the aid of loading and unloading systems or individually programmed robots. Further modules, such as optical inspection systems, can be flexibly added according to customer requirements.
