VW Phaeton Factory Photos

From: Volkswagen's 'Transparent Factory,' Dresden

Phaeton assembly line photo

The assembly lines are made up of 29 moving floor sections. (The floor is sheathed in Canadian maple, giving it the look of an impeccably-maintained ballroom or basketball court.) The floor creeps along at a speed of one meter per minute, with workers standing on the moving floor to remain stationary in relation to the cars.
