The greatest benefit that DuraMax brings to the Chemnitz engine factory: instead of several different tools, only one measuring machine is required which can be adjusted as needed for a new part or engine generation in just a few steps.
Furthermore, the measuring results are more detailed, accurate and reliable than before, and can be better compared to the results from the measuring lab.
The Chemnitz engine factory now uses 14 DuraMax machines in its production facilities. "This has enabled us to reduce our costs," states Kurth. "Furthermore, we are improving the utilization of our capacities, process transparency and output. We are therefore making a key contribution to value creation-oriented process – fully in line with the higher-ranking corporate objectives of Volkswagen."
