Mesmerizing: a production line for Lego cars - voila! vehicle


Get it: a working production line for small Lego cars made entirely of 5,000 Lego bricks and electric motors from the classic game.

They have always talked about the industrial revolution that will happen when robots start building robots themselves.

So that day hasn't come yet, at least not the apocalyptic scenarios that were supposed to accompany it.

But the day when toys will build toys is here.

Daniel Bandentali is an Italian Lego artist and robotics expert.

On his website he sells Lego sets that he designs himself, offers books and plans for building models that the Danish Lego company itself does not offer, and at the same time serves as its consultant.

Bendatelli, who lives and creates in Tuscany, combined his loves to create a spectacular project: a real, active production line that builds small Lego cars.

The strip is not meant to replace the moments that many small and big children enjoy after opening the package, scattering the pieces on the floor, and putting them together before the programs.

Those moments that come a few hours before the screams in the night of the family member on duty who stepped on the single cube that was not assembled and was left orphaned and plowing evil on the floor.

5,000 pieces

But it demonstrates well how a real car production line works.

Like your car, the ones it emits are built from pre-assembled parts waiting for the robots to put them together.

In the case of Bendatelli, the car consists of four components: a basic platform with wheels and an undercarriage, a front and rear body and a roof.

Ready-made platforms start their journey in the bar, and the robots connect the body parts to them and fasten according to the customer's choice.

This production line offers 9 different combinations of body parts, in a real production line there are hundreds of combinations of platform, vehicle body, engines and accessories.

Its four-station assembly line takes one minute to produce its first car, but after there are already cars in various stages of assembly at each station, it only needs half a minute to produce the next.

More than 5,000 Lego parts were used for construction, including electric motors and sensors from the Danish manufacturer's kits.

Only one part was made by Bendatelli himself, a traffic light based on a 2 x 4 cube familiar to every Lego builder.

He refuses to reveal the plan for building the production line, and Lego itself has not yet shown interest in turning this lovely project into one that you can buy as a ready-made kit in stores and build together with the children.

Of course with the children.
