Uncertainty prevails among OEMs of car manufacturers about the size and number of production volumes. How many cars should be produced now the younger generation is less likely to buy a car and it is becoming less attractive to own a car in major cities? Sharing cars and autonomous driving are also trends that present challenges.
AWL responds to this with its modular solutions: M-Line. This means you can use one machine for multiple parts for several car models. Also, the machine is scalable based on the volume demand. This not only saves space on the floor, but also high investment costs.
In addition, you can use Lyla, AWL’s digital production coach, to achieve higher OEE thanks to machine data. With Lyla, you can collect and evaluate data from the machine, so you have an insight into your production and can adjust quickly when needed.
The automotive industry sets high demands on innovation, quality, 24-hour volume production, flexibility in product variants and short lead times. AWL guarantees you a turnkey production process that satisfies your demands.
We have years of experience with OEM design requirements. Both for the automation concept as well as for the product design itself. We know the requirements that are set for the components, we provide input on the product design and master the various joining techniques used therein. In our machines, we use state-of-the-art techniques, in which our engineering and process knowledge are invaluable.
AWL machines are used, among other things, for body components, such as cross members, roof frames, A, B, and C pillars, side members, cockpits and doors. Safety plays a significant role here. After all, the bodywork constitutes the physical protection between the passenger and the outside world.
Our machines work with the latest technologies in the field of laser, spot and arc welding with integrated systems for glued joints, stapling, clinching, vision systems, product handling, quality control and traceability.
