1. The die-casting machine: A shock tower is cast in the die-casting machine. It will later connect the    shock strut to the body and structure of the vehicle.

The monitoring station: A central monitoring station is where all data for the parts being    manufactured and the machines converges. Here the processes can be continuously monitored.
