The Smart plant in Hambach (France) is being rebuilt. Due to restructuring, the SUVs of the GLA and GLB class will be produced there in the future.
AFT Schopfheim contributes to the conversion of the plant in Hambach with the delivery of the EMS for doors. A special feature of the EMS are several lifting units that enable ergonomic working conditions at the assembly stations. AFT hereby offered a tailor-made solution suitable for the needs of Daimler. The entire system has 6 lifters, which lower the EMS vehicles from the production level below the ceiling to the assembly level and then transport them back again.
Initial assembly works on the EMS plant will begin in October 2019. The final acceptance is planned for next year.
