April 27, 2017
We are very proud that a major premium European automotive manufacturer has made a substantial investment in cutting-edge technology from Augsburg
The project involves the engineering, development and construction of a complete new body-in-white production line, including conveyor systems for the manufacture of different vehicle models in the premium segment. The KUKA PULSE transport system – an energy-efficient, low-maintenance and high-speed conveyor system with linear synchronous motors developed by KUKA North America – will be used for the first time in Europe. This technology is a key element in increasing the efficiency of the body-in-white production line. The start of installation is planned for May 2017.
