Homogenous Lighting Levels For The Manufacture Of Sporty Roadsters
The new generation of Audi TT Coupés and roadsters get to see the light at the Ingolstadt works in Hall N42. Over 3,100 Siteco luminaires will be making the ‚birth’ of the new cars a truly illuminating experience, especially for the employees, who can concentrate on their work thanks to uniformly high lighting levels. For each individual activity the perfect light: modular trunking systems, 4x80W large-area highbay luminaires and modern secondary reflector technology come together to create optimal, homogenous lighting conditions.
Beefy roadsters and good lighting have one thing in common: both leave a lasting impression. The chassis of the new TT’s are constructed in Audi’s Hall N42 in Ingolstadt. The autos certainly know how to convince in terms of looks and technology. Just as convincing are the lighting solutions deployed at the construction plant, combining state-of-the-art technology and optimal lighting performance with an attractive appearance – the reason why Audi as a premium brand took the decision to install lighting from Siteco.
Logistics and production areas each consist of 15,900 m² of space with additional offices, social areas and stairwells – an area requiring illumination with energy efficient lighting solutions incorporating advanced lighting technology. Construction surfaces should be illuminated as much as possible from the production line areas in order to guarantee an uninterrupted assembly. It was therefore decided to go with the 4-lamp Siteco large area highbay luminaires (4x80W), mounted at a height of eight metres. They have the capability to illuminate assembly areas up to 8m on both sides of the production lines with 300 lux. That only leaves the inlay areas, wider hall areas and the stage areas needing to be lit with additional trunking luminaires.
The combined use of DUS trunking and Siteco large area highbay luminaires within the production area and DUS IP20 (logistics) and DUS Plus (office areas) have created homogenous lighting conditions with a high vertical lighting component.
Siteco Mirrortec® technology guarantees highest levels of luminaire efficiency and a uniform illumination within the beam area for the open, foyer-like architecture of the offices and their connecting stairwells. The Siteco Projector 400 and the Siteco 5NW139 reflector with Fresnel technology with their high-grade, minimalised design complement one another perfectly, allowing for an exactly defined beam area. Lunis C Downlights with their VirtualSource® reflector technology provide additional viewing comfort with high efficiency levels in this building area.
The Siteco lighting solutions implemented at Audi satisfy and go beyond the requirements of current industry standards with their high levels of uniform illuminance and vertical lighting components. The well-being of employees and their work productivity are positively influenced. Highest requirements for lighting quality correspond with the self-confidence of Audi as a brand name combining success with passion.
