Mercedes-Benz Trucks produces complex metallic spare and special parts in top quality using a new 3D printing process. The photo shows the working cavity of the laser printer at whose centre a metallic thermostat cover has been produced for the first time using selective laser melting (SLM). When the work platform is raised, the powdered aluminium/silicon material moves to the side and the contours of the component become visible.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks is the worldwide technological leader in the use of 3D printed components, and will in future also produce complex metallic spare and special parts in first-class quality. The view into the interior of the 3D printer shows the first printed thermostat covers, which are still connected to the work platform. After removal of the platform and support structure, the aluminium/silicon metallic powder is removed by suction, sieved, cleaned and ecologically fed back into the recycling system.

Mercedes-Benz Trucks already successfully produces 30 spare parts with the latest 3D SLS printing processes. In the after-sales sector Mercedes-Benz Trucks is no. 1 worldwide in using 3D printed parts. The mentioned spare parts for the previous Actros series are available under the official spare part numbers A 000 462 0043 (left) and A 000 831 0936 (right).

Aksaray plant: manufacturer of Axor, Atego and Unimog: The Aksaray plant of Mercedes-Benz Türk A.S. in Central Anatolia is one of the biggest and most up-to-date truck manufacturing operations in Turkey and a major exporter to Eastern Europe and the Far Eastern countries.

Aksaray plant - body shop, welding robots: Quality and accuracy come first. Advanced production technologies are employed in all areas. Example body shop: in duet special robots weld the truck cab roofs. The workers affectionately have dubbed the two robots Karagöz and Hacivat after two famous and funny stage characters who have an age-old tradition in Turkey.

Aksaray plant - measuring laboratories: The metal, chemical and measuring laboratories of the Quality Centre ensure the quality of truck parts by analysing and testing them for conformity with the pertinent standards and regulations and above all to guarantee compliance with the plant´s own high quality standards. Here the sheet metal door of an Atego is being tested for dimensional accuracy. The door of a Mercedes must neither rattle nor shake; a solid thud must be heard when it slams shut.

Aksaray plant - audit: Product audit to make sure the quality is right: audit comes from the Latin audire, i.e., in an audit the specialists "listen" to the product and scrutinise every millimeter of the final product. Hardly a flaw, no matter how small, escapes their trained, watchful eyes. What applies to the mechanical components certainly also does to the electrical system: only perfectly functioning components are released for use. Aksaray has been awarded all ISO certifications by the German technical inspection authority TÜV and DQS.

Aksaray plant - assembly lines: The heart of production is the two assembly lines for cabs and chassis. As at all other plants, assembly is organised according to the Mercedes-Benz Production System. The current annual capacity is 12,300 trucks.

Aksaray plant - vehicle delivery: The big moment: in the attractive showrooom of the new Customer Centre the proud owners wait for the vehicles they´ve ordered. It is always a big affair when the brand new trucks leave the adjacent delivery building. The driver has received detailed information beforehand because, as with service or financing, Mercedes-Benz do not leave the customer to himself to learn to handle the truck.

Aksaray plant - cathodic dip painting: For premanent protection and brilliant shine, DaimlerChrysler has invested more than 75 million euros in the plant, among other things in the ultramodern cathodic dip painting facility with its 13 dip tanks. In an electrochemical process the cabs get a complete rust prevention coating here.
