Modular manufacturing and autonomous solutions will drive the automotive factory of the future, here’s how…
The first assembly line revolutionised the automotive industry, enabling the mass production of standardised products. However, today’s automotive manufacturers are dealing with greater complexity and variation, pushing the limits of the conventional assembly line.
This is increasingly the case as manufacturers expand the production of electrified powertrains alongside the manufacture of ICE vehicles, resulting in bottlenecks, reduced productivity and increased costs.
To respond to this challenge, many automotive manufacturers are looking to move towards more flexible, modular manufacturing systems. This move is enabled by new advances in automation technology in AGV systems – enabling manufacturers to improve efficiency while reducing waste.
