The automotive industry is one of the most important commercial sectors, with a densely networked supplier industry. Generally, the industry is separated into vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers and line builders. Due to the ever growing number of different variants and increased manufacturing capacities , vehicle manufacturers are increasingly focused on global platform strategies. As part of these strategies, plant concepts and parts can be reused, which then increases the numbers of parts produced.

Strict emission regulations and dwindling resources also require the increasing electrification of vehicles. In addition, production methods are changing: production lines are becoming more flexible and cars are becoming lighter, e.g. through hot forming.

Vacuum components from Schmalz are generally used in automated production lines, in particular in press Shops, body shops, during the final assembly or in logistic processes.
