Jaguar Land Rover

We use Desoutter’s tools and fastening solutions in our trim and final assembly workshops at our Changshu plant. At the moment, we are installing Desoutter’s PivotWare process control system solutions in strategic areas. They help solve various complex manufacturing requirements, which enables our operators to focus on getting difficult processes right every time, improving quality. For us, industry 4.0, or China 2025, is the next step in improving connectivity.

We want to connect our equipment seamlessly to create more efficient manufacturing systems that help us create better products and meet customer requests more quickly. We plan to make our second trim and final assembly facility an intelligent workshop.

Desoutter are helping us create a fully connected tooling network, where we can instantly access the performance data of our tools and fastenings to identify and resolve potential problems in advance.


With its reliable tools and innovative assembly solutions that help us improve productivity, I believe Desoutter is one step ahead in the assembly market. We’ve used Desoutter’s small manual drilling machines for over a decade and for the past three years we have used the SETITEC range of electric drilling tools, particularly the Automatic Drilling Units.

We have now reached the validation phase, testing Desoutter’s Industry 4.0 solutions including geopositioning, QR code readers, PivotWare process control systems and new software. The objective is to get the operators, the HMI and the tools communicating together.


Ford has used Desoutter’s products at its plant in İnonu, Turkey, for a very long time and I have been working with these tools since I joined the company seven years ago. We manufacture motors for trucks and commercial vehicles and embracing Industry 4.0 is very important for us, as it enables us to optimize the efficiency of our production lines and secure the production processes. We are currently using Desoutter’s barcode control with advanced control program and all our tool units are connected to CVI NET WEB controllers for traceability.

Although Industry 4.0 implementation will take some time, we are moving towards it gradually. In this regard, we think that Desoutter’s PivotWare process control solution has great potential.
