Russian carmaker Aurus launches an online tour of its factory
If you are interested in peeking inside Aurus car production facilities and learning how the Senat sedan is made, the Russian premium vehicle manufacturer is offering an online tour of its Alabuga factory in Tatarstan.
A welded and painted car body arrives at the assembly line where it gets noise proofing, wiring and electronic units installed into it. Next up, glass is installed all around in a semi-automatic procedure.
The sedan then receives a complete interior fit-and-finish and only then meets its chassis, which arrives suspended on a crane. Three individual assembly subzones are used to mount and calibrate the engine components, the transmission and the suspension.
In the end, the car departs to a QA facility, where the performance of its drivetrain, electronic systems and sensors are assessed. The QA room houses a dyno stand, a paint expertise stand, and a seal inspection area. Operators use special tablets with detailed manuals provided for every little step.
Only the assembly facility is available on the Aurus website at the moment, but the company promises to show us its welding and painting workshops as well.
