Complex logistics and exact planning required
June 2013 – CAOA invests again in increasing its capacity and charged Dürr to expand the paint shop and the final assembly. The local car manufacturer that produces Hyundai products under license, wants to produce new models in its plant in Anápolis, Brazil – which was built by Dürr some years ago.
All latest investments of the CAOA group in the last years have been sourced by Dürr, not just the paint shop expansions – Dürr received this order at the end of 2012 – but recently for the final assembly line and the conveyor systems.
The paint shop extension is scheduled to be launched in July, 2013, the final assembly project will be ready for production in August, 2013. Both projects will be conducted on site without interruption of the CAOA production. This requires complex logistics and an exact coordination of planning.
In the paint shop the capacity of the pretreatment and the electro-dip painting will be increased. Among others the primer oven and the cooling will be extended too.
The modification of the existing water test booth is one part of the project in the final assembly. The final inspection deck will be 40 meters long, the slat conveyor system 74 meters.
The projects have been executed by the Dürr Brazil management and engineering groups. The installation on site will be performed by Dürr Brazil own erection crew. Together they ensure the fulfillment of the tight time schedules agreed with CAOA.
