The Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant introduced a shadow-free corridor into the production of cars. It is expected that it will help to find the smallest defects in the paint of the body of cars, so they will rust less.
The tunnel is equipped with 50 lamps with adjustable illumination intensity. It allows you to pass up to 250 vehicles per shift. It is estimated that thanks to the shadowless corridor, quality control officers will be able to detect 40 percent more defects in UAZ paintwork.
- The light tunnel has become a new stage in the quality improvement program, which has been implemented at the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant since 2018. The enterprise has an automated control system that records deviations from the set parameters online. If critical problems are identified, it blocks the further movement of the machine along the conveyor.
Earlier, UAZ launched an online ordering system for new cars in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. Now the machines are issued only to customers wearing masks and gloves in a special area, which is disinfected after each client. Some dealerships will deliver the UAZ to your home using a tow truck for a fee.
