Wow. Wow. Wow. That about sums it up. This is a most impressive tour of an amazing facility. This is no "behind the glass wall" type of factory tour- you are RIGHT there, walking right next to all of the assembly processes- sparks flying, forklifts flying by, parts such as gear shift knobs and airbags close enough to touch.... The robotics in this plant are beyond belief. Like being in a Spielberg movie, except that it is 100% real. The robots are a little scary- they seem alive! It is just crazy to watch a huge BMW engine/transmission rolling down an assembly line and become "married" to the car body. And then, to see them hand place the airbags, dash board, seats, etc.... It is quite a process. It is so finely tuned, vendors are fined thousands of dollars per MINUTE for parts delivered late, as it has the ability to shut down the entire line. At the end of the assembly line, you get to see a vehicle be started and driven for the first time. Our tour guide told us that one lady was so amazed, she cried! Really, I am not much of a car nut or into robotics, but this plant tour earned an A+ in my book. How exciting to watch these great driving machines be produced right here in the good ole USA!
