Abstract

The American automotive supplier Cooper Standard Automotive GmbH produces brake and fuel lines at its site in Schelklingen, Germany. Compressed air is an essential energy source for metalworking and bending automation and is used in correspondingly large volumes. Until 2016, the compressed air supply was provided on a contract basis by a compressor manufacturer. When the contract expired, the company took the opportunity to put the existing compressed air supply system to the test.
