BMW axle design has evolved considerably in recent years to reduce weight and increase performance. The latest developments have created the need for a relatively precise finish machining operation on axle carriers. To perform this machining, BMW uses innovative Tricept robots due to the high level of flexibility they offer. The automaker has installed two highly automated machining systems based on Tricept robots at its Dingolfing plant. Their capacity, operating three shifts a day, 5 days a week, is more than 1,400 parts per day.
