Audi saved nearly €110 million with clever employee ideas in 2018

Three employees in the body shop in Ingolstadt had the idea of attaching an air jet to the laser soldering head of a robot that connects two outer parts of the Audi Q2 tailgate with a soldered seam. This nozzle reduces the amount of residue produced during soldering, and means that the employees no longer have to clean the tailgate parts by hand. One stage of work is eliminated and the cleaning cloths that were needed as well. Savings for Audi each year: about €40,000.
