Part 4: The measure of all things

Video series: Das Werk

Even NASA doesn't get more precise than this.

This is how millimetre-precise quality control happens on the production line.

How do we measure and check our cabs? It's quite simple actually: “Looks about right. It'll do”.

Only joking! Even the most exacting of our colleagues equipped with a tape measure isn't enough to guarantee the continuous quality control of our trucks. Two sets of eyes can see better than one. And a hundred camera lenses and lasers can see even better than that. The production process can only continue if every single millimetre is precisely as it should be.

Everything OK? Let us know.

And next week you'll be discovering paints and upholsteries – our trucks will be getting some colour!
