ATTS Vietnam and our successful projects: Hirotec – VinFast
The automobile industry is one of the main applied industries of automation because robots and machines are involved in all manufacturing stages. With the trend towards 4.0 smart factories, the automobile industry is also one of the leading industries implementing advanced automation systems. ATTS Vietnam (Autotech), a leading provider of automation services and technical solutions in Vietnam, has worked with VinFast to introduce the first Vietnamese brand automobile products.
Advanced automation drives the development of the automobile industry in Vietnam
Vietnam’s automobile industry is inferior to those of other countries in the region. The domestic automobile industry was founded in the late 20th century; while in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, the industry has been developed since the 1960s. Therefore, the domestic automobile industry is facing many challenges coming from the fierce competition of foreign rivals.
VinFast is the pioneering enterprise with the mission to bring Vietnam’s automobile products to the international market. Due to the common features of heavy industries, all stages of automobile manufacturing process include the participation of robots and machines. To catch up with the developing speed of regional countries and fulfill the ambition of completing production procedure in the shortest time-frame, VinFast has invested in building a state-of-the-art automation system.
VinFast automobile factory works towards the model of smart 4.0 factory, world-class scale and modernity. At the same time, VinFast is also the first car maker in Vietnam to have a complete, synchronized, and automated production line with 6 sub-factories including stamping shop, body shop, painting shop, engine shop, auxiliary shop, and assembly shop.
These shops are connected and automated with thousands of ABB robots, equipped with smart production operation systems of Siemens and SAP. For efficient use of equipment and taking full advantage of the technological strengths, automation solutions must also be well-designed to suit VinFast’s development strategy.
