Posted on 12. Nov, 2016 by in Audi Canada

In Münchsmünster, Audi combines sustainability with considerable potency on a site covering 48.2 hectares: Since 2013 a site has been regulating innovative prolongation methods to furnish form-hardened piece steel components and aluminum die castings for lightweight construction.

“Our prolongation is an critical post of tolerable and intelligent production,” remarked Thomas Sukowski, Head of Component Manufacturing Münchsmünster given Jun 2016. “We supply a series of Volkswagen Group plants from Münchsmünster, including a Audi plants in Ingolstadt and Neckarsulm, VW in Bratislava and Porsche in Leipzig. We will say a expansion arena in 2017.” Sukowski says a aim for a entrance year is to make 26 million tools with a workforce of 850.

In a site’s modern constructional components shop,giant aluminum die casting systems work during full load. They have a shutting force of 4.400 tonnes. This line alone will spin out over 560,000 components in 2016, such as cessation strut mounts for a Audi A4. Production volume in a chassis components shop has reached 7 million parts. Wheel hubs for a Audi Q5, Q7, A4, A5, A6, A7 and Audi A8 as good as a Porsche Macan are done on dual lines. Audi also manufactures stop disks for cars formed on a MLB modular longitudinal height in Münchsmünster. These are done on 9 prolongation lines. A fourth circle conduit and pivot temperament line is now being set up. 

Audi attaches a biggest probable significance to sustainability in Münchsmünster. In a laser park of a press shop, a new slicing technique opens a proceed for an innovative proceed to rubbish disposal: It keeps a slicing times for estimate a heat-formed pressings to a minimum, and particular separating cuts to a rubbish partial can be dispensed with altogether. The workman takes a finished member true out of a plant and a rubbish is automatically private but any interruptions.

Since this year, Münchsmünster has also been undergoing a mutation into a intelligent bureau of a destiny – a intelligent factory. In a constructional components shop, for instance, a driverless ride complement (DTS) takes assign of forwarding tools from a casting bays to a feverishness diagnosis stage. Apprentices are also operative in a DTS project. Currently 6 trainee foundry mechanics and 14 apprentices training as room logisticians, slicing appurtenance operators and mechatronics engineers are intent here.Another instance of digitally connected work in Münchsmünster: In a circle heart shop, a bin picking complement supports a high-speed prolongation of tiny fake steel parts. Based on formidable communication with 3D picture approval software, a drudge picks unsorted circle hubs from a bin and sets them up. The finished circle hubs are also packaged wholly automatically. The outcome is that a prolongation line can finish a circle heart each 8 seconds. The workers control this routine from an ergonomically optimized workstation.

Audi is also creation solid swell in a area of biodiversity during a Münchsmünster site. The bureau halls are surrounded by fruit trees and wildflower meadows. Audi is similarly hosting a world-first investigate hire in Münchsmünster in a figure of a “Smart HOBOS” high-tech beehive. This forms partial of a “HOneyBee Online Studies” project, by that Audi – represented by a environmental substructure Audi Stiftung für Umwelt GmbH – seeks to strengthen honeybee colonies in team-work with a Julius Maximilian University of Würzburg.

There is range for fluctuating Audi’s prolongation operations in Münchsmünster. AUDI AG already owns approximately 15 hectares of land to a west of a site. The growth devise for an industrial plant was recently done public.
