In the car body area of their Emden factory, Volkswagen has taken a new serial measuring area into operation. Starting from a loading area with eleven spaces, a set of measuring plates mounted with car body parts is processed after automatically entering its allocated measuring station. The new transport system - consisting of transport measuring plates with rail transfer, and a computerised drive and safety system - was conceived by Horst Witte Geraetebau from Bleckede, Germany.
