Assembly Engineering

The Automotive Circle is adapting to the Corona situation and will for the first time gather its global network of final assembly experts virtually to discuss solutions to these current challenges:

Impact of Covid-19 pandemic on production

In terms of content, we will start our discussion this year with the impact of the pandemic on your production environment and supply chain. How did global manufacturers manage the complete shutdown and later ramp-up of their plants and final assembly activities and which are the lessons that could be learned from this extraordinary situation? Which strategies are currently applied to create a safe environment in final assembly and to protect workers from infecting with the virus. 

Smart logistics

The last few months have also shown that logistics and a smooth flow of parts and materials are key factors in successful assembly. Especially in logistics, new pioneering technologies such as automated tugger trains or smart tracking devices are currently emerging that support efficient and smooth logistics processes. 

New automation concepts and digitization

The possibilities of digitization are a game-changer in final assembly and can be crucial for your success in production and the quality of your products.

For all confirmed presentations please have look at the preliminary agenda below.

Join the virtual conference and its discussions on 2 and 3 March  - conveniently and safely at your own workplace. We look forward to seeing you online!



Discover future-oriented solutions from managers and specialist engineers from leading automotive manufacturers.


Meet the speakers and ask your individual question online.
