28 May 2019 The evolution of the Automotive sector and FIAM’s response at the Nuremberg fair
From 5 to 6 June 2019, Fiam will be exhibiting at the AEE Automotive Engineering Expo in Nuremberg: the only interactive show in the world focusing on the whole Automotive sector manufacturing process, especially on the car body process chain, from design through to assembly and final painting.
On the exhibition floor, the spotlight will be on the technological evolutions set to enable businesses in the Automotive supply chain to be increasingly productive and more competitive, in line with the smart factory and Industry 4.0 concept.
On this note, it is crucial for manufacturing environments to adapt quickly to different manufacturing demands as a result of the car’s continuous evolution, such as the growing use of ever-lighter materials like aluminium or carbon, or the need to electrify vehicles to reduce CO2 emissions. A landscape, therefore, that calls for increasing manufacturing versatility and accuracy when it comes to the quality of the resulting end product.
In terms of tightening operations and surface finishing on vehicles and their parts, visitors to the Fiam stand 317 in hall 12 at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre will be able to see for themselves the advantages offered by our new technologies: electric, electronic and air solutions, designed to:
- boost production capacity – we are looking at the flexibility offered by automating tightening processes and, more specifically, the technology of collaborative robots, which can be quickly reprogrammed and used for different applications, even for low-volume runs or for variable workflows with quick operational setup changes;
- assure the quality of the end product, through assemblies achieved with sophisticated electronic technologies that offer versatility, programmability, real-time diagnostic capabilities and hence unbeatable accuracy of the parts fastened.
