One Manufacturer, Many Solutions
In Kassel, Volkswagen produces car components, supplying seven brands in 35 countries. Among these are gearboxes, exhaust systems and other components made in Europe’s largest light alloy foundry, forming, drive train und bodywork plant. They are manufactured on physically separate, specialised production lines. As different as these lines are the two driverless transport systems from DS AUTOMOTION that take care of in-house transport in parts of the production. Each in its own way, both contribute to the flexibility and high process stability of the production. They help Volkswagen Kassel produce automobile parts following the principles of Industry 4.0.
