On August 9, Ford of Mexico announced the integration of Manufacturing 4.0 practices at its Cuautitlán Stamping and Assembly plant as it works to increase production of the Mustang Mach-E electric SUV.
Ford has been producing the Mach-E for just over a year now at the plant.
Ford is currently building approximately 2,000 Mach-E’s per week, but will double that number in early 2023 as it aims to produce more than 200,000 units annually.
One of the many factors involved in making that goal a reality is what Ford calls “Goliath the Robot,” the largest machine of its kind at the Cuautitlan plant.
Goliath weighs 8.6 tons and is used to install the Mach-E’s body panels with extreme precision.
“Goliath has helped us demonstrate the great benefits that robots bring to manufacturing areas. Without him, doing his job would require 50 collaborators and just over 30 minutes, which would limit our production capacity, which today is approximately 305 units per day, "said Marcos Madrid, manager of Ford Cuautitlán.

On August 10, Ford Motor Company announced that through a new clean energy agreement with DTE Energy it will soon be able to attribute all its electricity supply in Michigan to clean energy, a major step toward Ford’s goal to reach carbon neutrality.
As part of the new agreement, DTE will add 650 MW of new solar energy capacity in Michigan for Ford by 2025, when every Ford vehicle manufactured in Michigan will be assembled with the equivalent of 100% carbon-free electricity, 10 years earlier than Ford’s global goal
The purchase is the largest renewable energy purchase ever made in the U.S. from a utility.
Once installed, the arrays will increase the total amount of installed solar energy in Michigan by nearly 70%.
“This unprecedented agreement is all about a greener and brighter future for Ford and for Michigan,” said Jim Farley, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company.

On August 9, FedEx Office announced it is piloting ten Ford E-Transit vans across its FedEx SameDay City network as part of the goal to transition its entire fleet to zero tailpipe emission vehicles by 2040.
FedEx SameDay City is the company’s local shipping option, which offers door-to-door delivery of time-sensitive parcels.
The vehicles are being tested in nine markets, including: Chandler, Arizona; Newark, California; Chicago, Illinois; Madison Heights, Michigan; Allen and Frisco, Texas; and Boca Raton, Clearwater, and Plantation in Florida.
The Ford E-Transit has a targeted range of 126 miles on a single charge, making it an ideal vehicle for local courier delivery.
FedEx Office has installed charging stations dedicated to these vehicles at each van’s home location and will supplement with remote charging stations in each market as needed to meet charging needs along courier routes.
