  The Volkswagen
        plant
   The impeccable work of
        the Germans!


    Translated from Dutch – Cornel 10/2010
Exterior of the factory ... Does it not look like a HOSPITAL?
There is a special train for visitors ... Right to the entrance!
The other one is for deliveries ... Comes directly from the factory!
  But pay ....
ATTENTION!


 On the outside
everything looks
 spectacular ...

 But you will see
that the inside is
   even more
    amazing.

You have no idea
 how advanced
   this all is.

 Have a look !
                 Automated zone.
Each car is build to specification by the customer.
   Each technician uses hi-tech equipment.
This floor is actually an assembly line and proceeds to the rhythm of the addition
of each part after a thorough inspection.
The assembly line is marked with large dots.
The technicians are mounting parts inside the body of the car.
 Each post assembly post
       has its own
    hydraulic bridge.

      The large dots left
       mark the moving
floor that runs continuously.

And if the technicians have
to work on the underside...
... There are these "cranes"
     which move in all the
         directions.

 They are telescopic, so
the car can be positioned
 in any desired position
      very precisely.
A series of mobile cranes: an assembly line …
... Which brings the car right next to the parts, not vice versa.
An assembly that is done ... as if they were plastic toys!
The engines are mounted, along with the transmissions (right).
   Everything is
    assembled
 according to the
  wishes of the
    customer:
      engine,
      chassis,
  type and color
    of the body.

Look at the control
   Instruments:
they are completely
     electronic
All required tools are available, perfect and precise.
WHITE is the color of the work clothes: everything must be perfect!
Only the mask and gloves of the surgeon are missing!
THE END OF THE ASSEMBLY!
The finished cars have to be placed somewhere …
A VW Polo is loaded into the "car
tower" in the factory in Wolfsburg
            (Germany).

This tower is a showcase for the
visitors who are welcomed every
Wednesday (approximately 5,000
    per week) when this huge
showcase is full. In this factory
not only Volkswagens are build,
  but also Audi's, Bentleys and
          Lamborghinis.

    THANKS FOR VISITING!
