The production of a SAAB automobile begins in the stamping plant, where huge steel and aluminium strips weighing several tons are cut into blanks. A car only starts taking on recognizable form during the construction process of the car-body shell. Production of the body shell involves assembling hundreds of steel and aluminium parts of various sizes and thickness into a precision car-body. This is done using various joining techniques, including gluing, riveting, screwing, or welding.
