KUKA Systems´ chinese subsidiary wins major automotive order valued in the mid-double million EURO range

30 January 2013

At the end of 2012, KUKA System GmbH's Shanghai-based Chinese subsidiary booked another major order for a car body assembly line. A European premium segment carmaker awarded the contract, which requires KUKA to develop and build a car body assembly line and parts such as the vehicle's curved roof and tailgate. The new system will feature 136 KUKA robots, which will perform tasks such as spot welding and in-line measurement.

Flexible laser welding systems are among the most innovative production systems. The advantages of this method are the improved stiffness, lower energy input and a reduced use of material.

Frank Klingemann, CEO KUKA Systems GmbH

This is a highly automated assembly line. Applying high-tech technologies such as flexible laser welding enables KUKA to further enhance its market position in the Chinese growth market
