The tool shop in Braunschweig has been a part of Volkswagen since the very beginning. The new competence center for welding technology should therefore reflect the company’s advanced system technology – where new production techniques are tested and optimized. The design should meet the essential quality criteria of aesthetics, functionality and cost-effectiveness, but also fit into the image of the company and convey this image.
We have given a great deal of thought to the interaction between the production cabin and the user with the goal of ensuring that the Volkswagen experience is enjoyed internally, in internal production.
Oversized sliding doors greatly increase visibility into the cabins. This allows improved monitoring and tracking of what is going on inside such as welding robot work.
Cutting-edge disk technology was essential. Welding produces ultraviolet light from which the user must be protected, but it must still be possible to safely observe processes.
