SCANIA chooses INDEVA for its new Plant
22 October 2020
SCANIA is one of INDEVA’s main customers worldwide and has been using INDEVA manipulators in Brazil since 2014. With the launch of the new cabin factory for the production of the new model launched in 2019, SCANIA has opted to purchase 36 INDEVA zero gravity manipulators in order to guarantee its employees productivity with total safety and ergonomics.
The equipment supplied includes intelligent electric zero gravity manipulators in column and rail models (installed on EEPOS and DEMAG rails), as well as manipulators with pneumatic technology.
The INDEVA solutions provided for this project have been specially developed for the handling of each of the SCANIA cabin pedestals in their various sizes and models, all of which are performed in a simple, fast, safe and completely ergonomic way!
The following videos show some of the equipment installed and in operation at the SCANIA plant in São Bernardo do Campo-SP:
With operations in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and Oceania, its activity extends to more than 100 countries worldwide. At LatAm, the company has three production units located in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, with a production capacity of 20,000 vehicles per year, including heavy trucks and buses and 5,000 industrial and marine engines, which employ 4,000 people and represent 20% of the group’s worldwide turnover. In Brazil, SCANIA began operations in 1957, when the country was chosen to host the brand’s first factory outside of Sweden, and during more than fifty years of activity in the country, the assembler has effectively contributed to the history of Brazilian transportation and has established itself as one of the group’s leading subsidiaries worldwide.
The São Bernardo do Campo-SP plant produces trucks and bus chassis and is the first to receive an INDEVA manipulator and to benefit from the advantages of being able to count on real zero gravity in the handling of parts in its production line.
INDEVA is very pleased to change the way SCANIA-LatAm handles the parts in its production line, adding even more technology to the group’s production process and guaranteeing total safety and ergonomics to the operators, who from now on will be able to handle heavy loads effortlessly and much faster than using traditional lifters!
