In the two years 2021-2022, with a total investment of up to 33 million USD in the development of technical technology at the factory, Mercedes-Benz Vietnam (MBV) is affirming its strong commitment to sustainable development. in the Vietnamese auto market.
Accordingly, Mercedes-Benz has used the above money to invest in 6 most advanced luxury car production technologies in the world; in which some technologies are present for the first time in the production and assembly lines of Mercedes-Benz in Vietnam.
These 6 technologies have been and are being applied on the new C-Class that has just been launched in Vietnam. This can be seen as a step that marks the historic milestone of the MBV factory since 1995. This move is not only a step forward in the gradual transition to automation of the Mercedes-Benz factory in Vietnam, but also represents a strong upgrade in improving quality, safety and user experience.

Mr. Klaus Schanz – Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Vietnam Factory To share: “With this innovation, we can take the efficiency, product quality and flexibility of our production line to new heights.
At the same time, this is also an opportunity for our production force to have access to the latest technology through a training program by experts from the main factory of Mercedes-Benz Group AG.“.
According to him, as the world’s leading car manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz is seen as a symbol of technological and technical advancement in the automation industry. This three-pointed star car company has always kept in mind that it will have to constantly research and improve the car production and assembly process to create the most desirable cars in the world.
Inherited from the most advanced technologies of the global chain of manufacturing – assembling factories, Mercedes-Benz Vietnam wishes to take advantage of that outstanding advantage to gradually perfect the car production and assembly process in the near future. country.
6 new technologies of Mercedes-Benz Vietnam factory include:
Chain technology Integrated at Bodyshop, flexible up to 4 models: Workshop line Bodywork is built on common platforms to optimize investment and reduce complexity. For the first time, MBV’s factory successfully applied a common body line for at least 3 car models (E-Class, GLC and C-Class).
This innovation ensures flexibility in the production process, and the line could expand production to a fourth (unspecified) model in the future. This is the first time this technology has been developed in a Vietnamese factory, marking an important step forward for MBV in completing the assembly line.
Robotic nail welding technology: Technological advances have helped the plant improve efficiency, production costs and accuracy. As a result, Mercedes-Benz can now start using robots for key processes of body production for domestically assembled vehicles (CKD), to ensure efficiency and reliability. high precision.
With the working ability of Robot, now the factory can quickly weld more than 150 nail points within about 20 minutes on each robot station. This factor also creates an advantage for MBV in bringing new technology to domestic production lines, and at the same time training employees to familiarize themselves with and apply innovative features.
Eagle Eye technology measures body geometry/coordinates (CMM): Eagle Eye technology helps measure body geometry/coordinates at the microscopic level, providing reflections on on-line production systems and processes.
This technology ensures more accurate body measurements when performed on intricately designed planes as well as contours on the latest vehicle designs. Eagle Eye uses a form of contactless measurement with an accuracy of up to 70 micro-meters, collecting nearly 1,900 measurement points.
Technology to pump soundproof foam into the car body (2K AFA Foaming): The body foam injection technology introduced in the C-Class series is an advanced soundproof foam injection technology used to inject soundproof foam into the body compartments, in order to almost completely eliminate noise and reduce noise. enhance your riding experience.
This is the first time that MBV has brought this technology from the most advanced factories of Mercedes-Benz Group AG to the Vietnamese market.
Robotic windshield glue pump technology: In the assembly process, the gluing of the windshield depends very much on the accuracy of the glue line on the glass circumference. This is a very precise step, so we are using robotic windshield glue technology in our vehicle assembly line. Besides, the quality of glue will be improved when this technology is put into use.
In fact, this technology has significantly improved performance compared to the old technology and achieved almost absolute accuracy on the windshield surface.
Advanced chassis and powertrain assembly technology: For the platform and future models, the technology of undercarriage assembly has improved. Due to a change in the design of the exhaust system, Mercedes-Benz will fit the entire powertrain with the bodywork (similar to those found in complete imported units (CBU) factories). Vehicles around the world will also be standardized.
