The 500,000th current-generation S-Class saloon has recently rolled off the production line at the Mercedes-Benz Sindelfingen plant. The current model of the Mercedes-Benz flagship has been produced exclusively at the tradition-steeped site in Sindelfingen for the global market since 2013. S-Class production is characterized by manifold digital technologies: state-of-the art data transmission and the latest hardware solutions facilitate the paperless factory, for example. The employees find out about each vehicle’s scope of specification via a screen. Mobile devices support them in individual work steps. Every vehicle can be precisely located at all times in a virtual representation of the factory. The customers also benefit from this: with the Digital Anticipation service they can follow the production status of their vehicle online.

Measures which facilitate an especially ergonomic way of working for the employees play a central role. They include mobile platforms which move in synch with the line. What is known as the ErgoSkid, which raises the vehicles on the assembly line by 26 centimetres whilst the employees lay the subharnesses for the floor unit, also makes a key contribution to improved ergonomics.

Since the market launch of the 220 model in 1951, around four million S-Class Saloon models have been delivered to customers worldwide. China is the biggest market of all: more than every third model is sold there.
