Assembly Engineering 2018

The next Automotive Circle conference on Assembly Engineering will be held in Bad Nauheim from 20 - 21 February 2018. As always, a high-calibre international forum of automotive engineers will discuss progress in technology, planning and organisation, covering all areas of final assembly in the automotive industry.

OEM presentations will highlight current and future automotive assembly technologies and trends:

  • advancement in process engineering and the production of new series-built vehicles
  • leading system suppliers‘ development results
  • trend-setting, practice focused studies from relevant research institutes

As always, there will be a lot of opportunity for an intensive exchange of information between the delegates.

Key topics:

  • Process optimisation in final assembly: progress in the design of efficient assembly processes, new lean manufacturing methods, versatile processes: intelligent solutions to help manage high levels of variation 
  • New technologies and examples of automation: new technologies and manipulators for the handling, fixing and connection of parts, new production tools and assembly aids, latest approaches to automation and practical examples of collaboration between humans and robots (HRC)
  • Human resources - the assembly worker: efficient HR planning and organisation, optimisation of ergonomics, new findings in occupational medicine, training and Continuing Professional Development, etc.
  • Data and software: intelligent solutions in data management and information exchange, application of new software tools and simulation systems, improved IT security / cyber security
  • Efficient logistics systems: new methods in handling material flows, new strategies in the provision of parts, optimisation of the commissioning process and parts logistics, etc.
  • Quality assurance in assembly: new failure detection methods, efficient end-of-line processes, advances in final vehicle inspection, new test methods, diagnostic systems and test scenarios, etc.

The detailed conference programme will be published in November 2017. You can already order your personal copy >>here!
