Stratus Avance Software Makes High Availability & Virtualization Easy: Röchiling Automotive

120 to 210 minutes is all the time Röchling Automotive is given to produce a complete set of door panels for a VW Touran, Tiguan, or Golf – which means extruding the plastic frames, installing components such as window lifters and loudspeakers, and completing the technical approval inspections. This is how Röchling produces door panels for around 2,000 vehicles per day at its Wolfsburg, Germany-based plant, which operates a three-shift system for round-the-clock production.
