PACCAR Production System
DAF utilizes the innovative PACCAR Production System (PPS) in its manufacturing operations. In DAF’s engine factory, employees receive standardized work instructions on PC workstations. Robots are used to enhance assembly accuracy and factory ergonomics. At DAF’s component factory skilled workers use advanced welding robots and laser cutting machines to produce a wide range of cab, chassis and axle parts. Ultramodern CNC-controlled machines and welding robots have been installed at the Westerlo cab and axle factory to continuously improve quality. The Leyland assembly plant is a highly modern facility producing the DAF LF series, as well as CF and XF models.
