Porsche: Inside the Macan paintshop
During our recent AMS Livestream on developing and operating more sustainable, flexible paintshops, Henning Steinborn, head of paintshop and Klaus Koberg, who is head of paintshop Maintenance, both from Porsche’s Leipzig plant, offered some insights into how the premium vehicle maker has developed its paint operations
Sustainability is now a key driver in developing automotive manufacturing processes and nowhere is this more important than in paintshop operations. While the work to improve efficiency and reduce costs is a continuous process much of the focus is on the development and implementation of sustainable strategies, including waste management, reduction of energy consumption and the use of more sustainable materials. And if sustainability is a driver, then digitalisation is an important enabler.
