On January 30, 2019, after successful customer acceptance, Schenck Shanghai Machinery and Dürr Assembly Products presented the localized rear axle setting system "x-align" at a customer day. At the Baoshan site, visitors from leading OEM's and automotive suppliers were introduced to the advantages of rear axle alignment as well as the successfully established localization process in in-depth presentations.
Afterwards, the visitors could directly convince themselves of the localization competence of SSM during a viewing of the x-align system. The realization of the highest customer quality requirements could be impressively proven.
Customer quote: "This is German quality Made in China".
The system presented was commissioned by a German premium automobile manufacturer to equip its Chinese production facilities and was successfully installed on site in advance. A special feature is that this system will be used to produce rear axles for battery-powered automobiles in the future.
This project represents an important milestone in the joint x-align localization process. Further inquiries for the setting of battery-powered rear axles are currently in the planning phase; the basis for successful follow-up orders was impressively laid within the scope of these dates.
