ASIS pigging technology in the VW Commercial Vehicles Hanover plant

Micro paint supply systems in the paint shop

The VW AG – Commercial Vehicles plant in Hanover was equipped with two piggable micro paint supply stations with 180l pears each. These are fully automatic, piggable ring line systems, which meet the high requirements of efficiency on time and economy.

The newly developed ASIS pig was successfully used here. Due to its innovative design, an alternative to the pigging systems available on the market was created that is interesting in terms of maintenance costs.

The complete system is rounded off by fully automatic lid cleaning systems.
