Volkswagen Zentrum Bari is the reference Volkswagen Dealer and Commercial Vehicles for the city of Bari and the provinces of Bari, BAT and Matera. Operating in the repair sector since 2001, it has a body shop department of about 700 square meters. Volkswagen Zentrum Bari has relied on the reliability and credibility of USI Italia to realize the new body shop department, inaugurated in 2019, and to optimize the repair processes.
The bodywork area has been divided into 2 sections. One is designed for the disassembly and reassembly of parts and for polishing, while the other is more operational and is equipped with 2 independent preparation zones and a highly efficient spray booth. The SYNCHRO preparation zones are used for the sanding and preparation of new parts or individual parts. In addition, a robotic infrared semi-arc is used for drying limited spot repair coatings.
The spray booth is the heart of the entire department: it is a high-efficiency (HE) system that makes it possible to cut electricity consumption by 50%, while maintaining the volumes of air necessary for the abatement of overspray.
USI Italia’s plants are connected according to the Industry 4.0 logic to allow two-way communication between machines and offices. Thanks to exclusive software such as EPS and DGT Manager, every action is digitally tracked, recorded and translated into targeted information that can help decision-making processes or inform employee efficiency indices.
USI Italia’s preparation and painting plants are all equipped with electro-hydraulic air lifts with a capacity of 35 quintals each.
USI Italia experience with Formula 1 teams began in the early 2000s, when it joined the Alpha Tauri team, Red Bull’s satellite team.
USI Italia is pleased to renew its partnership with one of the most successful Formula 1 racing teams. A collaboration that has allowed us to bring our experience in the paint sector to the highest levels of performance.
