Production automation in the automotive sector is leading in process innovation

Automotive manufacturers are at the forefront of implementing cutting-edge manufacturing automation and assembly processes.

Total Productivity supplies production automation systems to both the OEM and the tier-1 suppliers in the automotive sector.
The production systems supplied by us are characterized by the seamless integration in JIT and Lean (6 sigma) processes. The OEM solutions concern both (sub) assembly cells and workstations directly on the line. Flexibility (changeover times), quality, turnaround times and ergonomics play an important role in this.

(semi-) automatic systems

Examples of delivered (semi-) automatic systems concern the assembly of tank, height control valve, cable harness and battery boxes. Because we speak the language of the automotive sector, our method of production automation fits in well with the requirements of process control, process quality, investments and flexibility that this sector knows.

Tier-1 solutions

The solutions that we supply to the First Tier Suppliers have the same properties, except that they are not directly linked to the final assembly line. Our production automation systems are used in the production of horns, shock absorbers and complex roof systems, among other things. Our experience in the automotive industry guarantees a solid and advanced solution that meets the requirements of the customer.

Project plan

During the production of the systems, an accurate project plan is maintained with our customers, in which milestones such as Engineering Review, FAT, SAT and SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) are gone through with the customer.

Good Engineering Practices (GEP)

Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and Site Acceptance Test (SAT) together are also referred to as commissioning or commissioning. It is part of the Good Engineering Practices (GEP) that we follow.


TNO develops canvas model for optimal cooperation between humans and robots

Namely the development of a canvas model with which the optimal cooperation and interaction between humans and robots can be determined.

Livestream: Innovation & economy stimulate reshoring

Recent times have made it clear that our dependence on low-wage countries is high. Being able to operate independently of these production countries has thus become a topic of discussion.

But why is there so much production abroad? How can we shorten the chains and how do you organize production in the Netherlands? We talk about it during this NHNEXT livestream with Thijs Pennink, Hans Totté, Peter Hobbelen and Marjolijn Dölle.

Business as usual “doing business in Corona time”

Normally there is little ambition in this statement, but nowadays the pursuit of “business as usual” is already quite a challenge. We are proud to announce that we have been able to deliver our recent projects without delay. With a lot of creativity we have found solutions to the challenges that have come our way.
