Just some months after the official launch of the Revuelto, the primary V12 plug-in hybrid HPEV (Excessive Efficiency Electrified Automobile) supercar from the Home of Sant’Agata, important milestones have already been achieved. As of now, orders cowl greater than two years of manufacturing. Revuelto isn’t an innovation solely by way of efficiency, technical options, and firm methods, it has additionally introduced an actual revolution by way of manufacturing processes: Manifattura Lamborghini Subsequent Stage completely expresses the paradigm shift.
Ranieri Niccoli, Chief Manufacturing Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “To fabricate the Revuelto, we understood we needed to go above and past. It’s a extremely customizable hybrid automotive, but it’s constructed utilizing conventional handcrafted expertise. We raised the bar to provide it, creating what we name Manifattura Lamborghini Subsequent Stage: a manufacturing system with individuals all the time at its core however which we tailored to ship a way more advanced product and to combine processes we haven’t used earlier than. With the introduction of the Revuelto, we expanded the realm occupied by the corporate services by 172,000 sq. meters, investing €150 million within the native space right here in Sant’Agata Bolognese.”
The manufacturing system outlined as “Manifattura 4.0” denotes an especially excessive degree of innovation. Because of this in each course of, from the making of the monocoque to the ending levels, every particular person station of the Revuelto line is distinguished by its high-tech influence which, as all the time at Lamborghini, helps – and by no means replaces – the indispensable work of people. For the Revuelto this synthesis of handbook ability and innovation represents the perfect embodiment of the manufacturing course of. This method results in a big discount in the opportunity of error together with larger manufacturing velocity, all benefiting the standard of automobiles being made.
The system that manages the mechanical and technological facets is known as MES (Manufacturing Govt System) and options an revolutionary method to the manufacturing course of. On this system, the operator is supported in every step by the machine, however she or he also can work together with it at any time to vary sure actions or cease its operation to intervene manually. Within the numerous workstations operators are supplied with a private wristband they will use to entry the system and to work through touchscreen displays or tablets. The MES system harmoniously manages among the most superior and futuristic technological instruments, particularly the “cobots”: collaborative robots used on all of the traces (engines, meeting, and fabric) that require repetitive actions, equivalent to windshield meeting for instance. Along with being collaborative with people within the true sense of the phrase, the particular function of cobots is that they make it potential to vastly remove the proportion of inaccuracies or errors within the actions carried out.
One other innovation is the presence of Automated Guided Automobiles (AGVs), dealing with units that at among the stations’ transport, in a collaborative mode, sure supplies used to assemble the automotive.
The actual protagonist of the Revuelto is carbon fiber, produced utilizing each handcrafted and automatic processes in Lamborghini’s CFK plant in Sant’Agata Bolognese. It’s the essential structural factor of the brand new automotive, used to make not solely the monofuselage chassis but additionally a big a part of the physique parts. The in depth use of carbon fiber and different ultralight supplies, mixed with the powertrain’s excellent efficiency numbers, has led to the most effective power-to-weight ratio in Lamborghini historical past: 1.75 kg/CV. One of many essential improvements of this automotive is that the bathtub is made in a single piece through the full industrialization of the method referred to as Lamborghini Cast Know-how. For the Revuelto, the worth of carbon fiber processing is so excessive that it prompted Lamborghini to increase and improve the CFK plant, which now covers 16,200 sq. meters. On this plant as nicely, the operators have precedence over all of the processes, although they’re nonetheless partly dealt with by machines. At present, between CFK and meeting, some 500 manufacturing operators are devoted to the Revuelto.
That is the method by which the Revuelto is manufactured, a automotive that defines a brand new idea by way of efficiency, sportiness, and driving pleasure by way of brand-new structure, revolutionary design, aerodynamics on the peak of effectivity, a brand new idea of carbon fiber chassis, and a 1015 CV powertrain.
The Revuelto, now in full manufacturing, is already establishing its success: an car that may rework not solely Automobili Lamborghini however the whole tremendous sports activities automotive market. The Revuelto marks Lamborghini’s entry into the second part of its formidable Direzione Cor Tauri undertaking, involving a complete funding of €1.9 billion – the biggest ever within the firm’s historical past. It results in the hybridization of the whole model vary by 2024, and in 2028 the debut of the primary full-electric model, already recognized by the Home of Sant’Agata Bolognese as a 2+2 grand tourer.
