August 3, 2012
The project comprises the entire engineering and construction for four lines that will manufacture car body parts such as front and rear sliding doors and tailgates for various types of vehicles. The contract includes building the pre-production assemblies. The order is valued in the lower double-digit million euro range.
Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG, says: "What's noteworthy about this product is the wide variety of models being assembled and the remote laser welding technology. The latter process enables parts to be welded from a considerable distance using a laser with a very high power density."
