A few kilometers from the historic center of Dresden is the Volkswagen car plant. It produces premium cars Volkswagen Phaeton. The plant itself is called the Gläserne Manufaktur, which means transparent factory. And it is called so not by accident. All external and internal walls are almost all made of glass. The building is located in the city park. No harmful production is not here. In the factory, there is only the final assembly of cars and all the components are supplied from other Volkswagen plants. The official opening of the plant took place on March 23, 2002. It is a new concept of the company that allows potential customers to get acquainted with the production. Let's take a look inside this exciting facilities.
Here is a car is on the first floor of the building. As part of a small tour dedicated staff very interesting talks about the factory and production. I think that there will be interesting not only to fans of the Volkswagen brand, because this factory is very different from a conventional automobile. Photos little, because it was not allowed to take pictures. Due to the fact that employees do not really like. Still on the ground floor there is an interesting simulation of a car with the engine W12.
In order to work at the company must constantly supply components. And since the factory is located in the heart of Dresden, this would mean the constant movement of trucks in the center. This problem was solved in a very interesting way. On the outskirts of town, near the exit of the motorway it was built a special logisticheky center, where wagons are supplied to all components. From this logistics center was built a special tram line that goes directly into the ground floor of the factory.
Ready Body comes from Zwickau. The entire assembly process takes four days. Almost every avtombil - a car in an individual configuration, depending on the wishes of a happy future owner. By the way, if there is such a desire, it is possible to attend the assembly of your car. And some even to pouchavstvovat opertsii in this exciting process. Pay attention to the light. For lighting plants were chosen lamp emitting light of the wavelength, which, according to the assurances of scientists ensures minimum fatigue staff. These lamps are directed at the ceiling, where there are special lenses. Thus, in the shops to obtain a uniform illumination with a virtually complete absence of shadows. And a bright light does not blind factory residents of nearby houses. It's amazing to what the smallest details everything is thought out. And here's own assembly line. He moves slowly and silently. The floor is made from a special flooring, which has excellent sound-absorbing properties. Therefore, in the shops very quiet.
Each surgery is usually only one employee. Rarely more. Robots are here just to have two operations: to install windshields and wheels. And so the assembly is fully manual. But oburudovanie enough "smart". For example, when a twist of nuts, the appropriate tool automatically from the computer memory sets the correct tightening torque. So Underturned or tapered connection immediately excluded.
