Excursion to Daimler plants Rastatt and Gaggenau

40 students visited the transmission plant Rastatt and the test facility »Sauberg« in Gaggenau within the scope of the lecture »process chains in automotive industry«

PtU offers the lecture »process chains in automotive industry« in cooperation with Daimler AG. The lecture given by Dr.-Ing. Steindorf offers deep insights into the processes in automotive industry.

The lecture scheduled this summer term deals with the implementation and the design of real process chains. In addition to the lecture, Daimler offers an excursion for illustrating the content of the lecture. The transmission plant in Rastatt was visited this term. The whole process chain of transmission manufacturing was demonstrated in this plant: the manufacturing of gears and shafts, the heat treatment, and the assembly of the transmissions. After the guided tour through the transmission plant the students were invited for lunch with executives of the plants in Rastatt and Gaggenau.

In the afternoon the second destination of the excursion, the test facility for trucks »Sauberg«, was visited. A demonstration showed the capabilities of recently developed trucks.

The PtU thanks Daimler AG and especially Mr. Dr.-Ing. Steindorf and his team for hospitality and efforts.
