Car Body Engineering

Insight @ Volkswagen Września 2019

INCLUSIVE Guided Tour through the body shop in Września

Enabling multi-variant production with the latest joining technologies and a high degree of automation

In car body engineering, flexibility is of increasing importance. To remain competitive, car manufacturers must flexibly respond to market requirements. In consequence, OEM must integrate new and future car body variants into the production line - if necessary, with additional processes such as the integration of the battery box.

To manage this increasing production complexity at a technically high level, the latest technologies, a high degree of automation as well as specific digitisation and modern measurement technologies are required.

With its state-of-the-art production in Września, Volkswagen has created its "role model for European transporter construction" and shows how a variety of variants can be realised with innovative production technologies and a high degree of automation. In the body shop, which opened at the end of 2016, the new Crafter is produced in 69 variants with a completely new platform, 30 side panel types, 180 floor types, 476 robots of the latest generation and state-of-the-art joining technologies.

The conference Insight @ Volkswagen Września offers you the exclusive opportunity to discuss multi-variant production, efficient joining technologies and new concepts with experts from Volkswagen and other OEM. A special highlight of the conference is the guided tour, which gives participants insights into the production of the new Crafter.
