SAR UBS/GAD at Volkswagen

The SAR flat-stream application - an automatic joint, bead and area sealing system has been in action in the VW factory in Wolfsburg for a couple of weeks now.

To ensure better quality, use less material and have less weight, VW invested in a new control and application technology for their Wolfsburg plant. The Golf, Golf Plus and Tiguan are sealed on these 3 UBS lines. The goal of these changes was the increase in quality together with the reduction in used material.
