Jonas in action
Automation before the automation age!?
What you see below are assembly rings - also called "Renfer rings". It allows Jonas to have a high degree of process stability during his assembly work. Think of it like Jonas automating himself... without having to run expensive numeric controlled assembly line equipment.
Simple..., proven for many centuries and does the job it is expected to do.
Parts trays help to keep overview about the parts consumption. You can get easily disrupted from some person walking into the workshop or a phone ringing and then... you might forget a screw or some small part. Assembly is a real challenge as it involves humans and their constant focus.
The assembly rings help the assembler to keep distances short and enable him execute his routines in a certain rhythm. But they also perfectly serve as interim storage devices and dust protection during down times between the different assembly stations.
