Audi adopts “overspray-free painting” in array production

Overspray-free portrayal record revolutionizes this time-consuming and material-intensive process. A robot-controlled high-precision instrument measures a laser-brazed join between a car’s roof and side row frame. An applicator afterwards relates a black paint specifically grown for this routine onto a physique in strips, with millimeter pointing though but obscurity mist. The pointing with that a excellent strips of paint are practical enables a resisting paint finish to be combined in a singular process, saving time and income while also benefiting a environment.

The Audi A5 Coupé “edition one” is accessible in a colors quantum gray; Daytona gray, pearl outcome and district green, metallic.
