Precision for perfection – Audi Toolmaking
Toolmaking is a strategic core competence of AUDI AG. It is largely responsible for the uncompromising precision of the metal panels and thus for the sophisticated appearance of the bodies. Audi has now invested more than €45 million in the future of the Toolmaking Division at the Ingolstadt site. The company erected an extension building and at the same time established a synchronized production system that makes all of the work steps leaner, more efficient and more goal-oriented. Audi Toolmaking is a global leader in the field, thanks in part to its technological competence. Its innovations include lightweight equipment with components of carbon fiber composites and – currently in the prototype stage – self-regulating “intelligent” tools.
