Volkswagen Brazil produces high quantities of passenger vehicles at its plant in Anchieta, where an improved work environment and smoother assembly process are imperative. VW needed an effective solution for its boom assembly line that avoided dependence on vacuum switches, and was reliable enough to manipulate heavy parts very easily without dropping and creating downtime.
COAX® cartridges placed at the point of suction were implemented in the assembly line.
VW saw improved productivity with stamping machine operations increased by 80%. Reliability was also enhanced as the suction cups operate independently from one another. If one fails, the others continue to work efficiently. Noise levels have also been decreased at the plant.
