As one of the largest automotive OEMs in the world, Volkswagen is committed to creating a safe working environment for its employees. That’s why the automotive manufacturer relies on MasterMover electric tugs to reduce manual handling, maximise flexibility and improve productivity in their production processes.
With a long-standing relationship with Volkswagen, MasterMover electric tugs are depended on to support various applications within the production process. The strength of this collaboration can be seen at their Zwickau Plant in Germany – Volkswagen’s flagship electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing plant, and the largest of its kind in Europe. Pioneering the production of electric vehicles, the site is a multi-brand production facility, manufacturing vehicles such as the ID.4 and even bodies for Bentley and Lamborghini.
The flexibility and safety of MasterMover electric tugs continue to drive Volkswagen’s adoption of the machines in various aspects of their production processes.
In this case study, we explore how Volkswagen reduced manual handling and improved safety in the movement of body-in-whites at Europe’s largest electric vehicle plant.
