Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is focusing on electromobility and with the ID. BUZZ brings its classic, the Bulli, to the road as a fully electric version. KUKA is responsible for the planning, delivery, assembly and commissioning of a fully automated body shop system for the underbody of the all-electric ID. BUZZ.

Most of the systems are assembled at KUKA in Augsburg, commissioned and then delivered to the customer. On an area of about 14,000 square meters, underbody 1 and 2 including associated subassemblies will be implemented.

Process technologies such as resistance spot welding, bonding, nut and stud welding are carried out in the 15 modular production lines. Among other things, so-called KUKA Rack Changer are used to supply the car body components to the production line.

Together into an electrifying future

KUKA is using its extensive know-how to support the biggest transformation in the history of the automotive industry and the new technical challenges it faces.

“Automated, intelligent systems are needed to meet the requirements for the cost-effective production of complex e-vehicles. Close cooperation between systems engineering and the automotive industry is more important than ever here” said Gerald Mies, CEO KUKA Systems GmbH.
