It is reported that Beijing Hyundai Chongqing Factory is located in the Yufu Industrial Development Zone of Liangjiang New District of the city, covering an area of 1.87 million square meters. Holding the annual production capacity of 300,000 complete cars and 300,000 engines, the Chongqing factory’s biggest feature is to follow the "Intelligence · Green · Quality · Efficiency" strategic approach that Beijing Hyundai always insists for new factory construction and operation.
For intelligent manufacturing, the Chongqing factory realizes entire production chain automation by using the globe-leading automobile manufacturing equipment and production technology. The fully automated production line consists of four major processes - stamping, welding, painting and assembly - and engine factories as well. The "Five 100%" concept going throughout the whole production system is the finest essence of intelligent production. As to green production, the factory will use a variety of environmental technologies to achieve low emissions, low energy consumption and green logistics. Regarding quality assurance, quality completion system, production instruction system, global security management system, energy-saving monitoring system and other modern management systems will be applied comprehensively for total quality control. In efficient operation, the factory will use GCS warehouse management system, automatic gap mismatch detection, 3D vision four-wheel positioning and etc technologies to achieve efficient production.
