VW-Manufactory Dresden, Germany – AFT Bautzen retrofits push cup assembly line

Planning and assembly of the works presented a special challenge at “Gläserne Manufaktur” in Dresden, Germany.

For the production of the new e-Golf several conversions in the VW plant “Gläserne Manufaktur” in Dresden, Germany were necessary.

At the beginning of January first pre-production models will be produced, in April the first customer vehicles will be finished. After the conversion, which costs according VW about 20 millions €, it will be possible to produce different models because of the flexible assembly lines.

AFT is significantly involved in these conversions. The oval circulating production lines covered with wooden parquet, where the luxury limousine Phaeton was assembled, are retrofitted by AFT Bautzen. For this purpose, underneath the assembly line a new rail system is installed, a corresponding new roller concept is used and the entire system is modernized in many other areas and thus fits the new requirements.
