The plant engineering section of the vehicle tool-making division of Volkswagen AG has bought four Faro ION Laser Tracker systems to calibrate and check production lines for VW body shops worldwide.
"Having successfully employed FARO Laser Trackers for many years, we picked FARO again for the new concept of synchronous production. The ION came along at just the right time and meets increased demands thanks to its greater precision.
The aim and purpose of synchronous production at Volkswagen is also to standardise mobile measuring technology within the Group. As a result, we are in a position to exchange personnel and equipment throughout Europe", says Peter Wulf, who is in charge of the Workshop Plant Engineering department at Volkswagen AG.
