Toyota Altona Manufacturing Plant Tour

Toyota-Pic-3

The Victorian SCLAA had the opportunity to host a free site visit at the Toyota vehicle manufacturing plant based in Altona, Melbourne on the 30th August 2016. The tour consisted of an overview of Toyota’s history in Australia followed by an in-depth walk around their stamping plant, highly automated body and paint shop while finally going through the vehicle assembly line where participants saw how the cars (Camry, Camry Hybrid and Aurion) gets put together using the Kanban system which is used to improve manufacturing efficiency.

Another highlight of the tour was the successful implementation of multiple automated guided vehicle’s (AGV) across the facility which contribute to improved workspace and process efficiency. It was clear to see that engineering and manufacturing a car is an extremely complex process and showcased Australia’s automotive manufacturing capability that we should all be very proud of.
