The robotized cylinder head and engine assembly lines at the Opel car factory in Kaiserslautern, Germany, make it one of the most advanced of its kind in the world. Designed and installed by ABB as a turnkey system, the project has set new standards for logistics, floor‐space requirements, economy and productivity. Zero‐defect production was given the highest priority during planning and realization of the assembly lines. Robot stations, special‐purpose machines and manual workstations have been combined in a way that optimizes the plant configuration and achieves maximum benefit for the plant operators.
