New Volkswagon Plant


The exterior of the plant resembles a hospital. The company has special trains for visitors and for deliveries.
Inside the plant it's meticulous and high tech . Almost resembles an operating room.

Everything is automated and workers wear white uniforms.
Each floor is an assembly line and cars get thorough inspections at each post
Each assembly post has a hydraulic bridge.
The crane holding the car moves it in any direction desired.
The car is brought to the parts to be installed andthe engines are mounted with transmissions
Tools are all precision tools.
Once done the car continues on the assembly line to the storage area where an elevator takes them up to their parking spaces.

They make about 5000 cars per week.


Very impressive!!

They say Hitler was killed May 1st and Bin Laden was shot May 1 st.
Well he is happy now with his 12 virgins lol
His loyalists should be happy for him.

As for the significance of his death for the rest of the world
I imagine most wish he goes to the other less comfortable place and join Hitler.

Both men left a message of savage terror in the world.

Congratulations world.
We survived these men.


Either life is quiet with nothing to say or things happen all in one shot.

This week end was very exciting with the hockey game we lost, the Royal wedding, this news about Bin Laden
and the tornado which killed an additional 300 people.
Ghadaffi's son was killed although its not clear which son or how many he has.
Was it the one who was on Television saying he will fight alongside his Father?

I hope the men will all come home now, as we did, what we went there to do.
If the middle east needs help, it can be given via air attacks, as they have been
doing in Ghadaffi's world without any more loss of good men.

Auspicious week end to be sure.

I am a VW driver. I can't imagine being behind the wheel of anything else. Oompa Loompas might get jobs at that plant.

If it only takes 3 people to put a car together, I am not surprised that there are so many people without work in Germany ;) Never saw that on TV.
In Italy I also saw a man with a dog, a cat and a guinea pig, that was really cute.

Gattina = yes Technology is not always a good thing because instead of paying people you pay for the machine costs and this loses the personal touch required to do good business.
I can't help but think of the postal affair where they promised better service with new machine technology and instead the service is costlier, and less efficient, a pain in the ass because things have to be parcelled just so... Plus a whole bunch of jobs were lost.:(
