Major order from the automotive industry
KUKA Systems landed another major automotive industry order in the fourth quarter of 2011
A European manufacturer in the premium segment awarded the company its order for the construction of two complete assembly lines. Both sub-orders comprise the engineering, design, construction and commissioning of each system. In addition, individual components such as rear and middle vehicle underbodies will also be manufactured within the scope of this order. The project will integrate industrial robots to manufacture the various components using the spot welding method.
This premium manufacturer's major order has a volume in the medium double-digit million euro range and will be booked pro rata at the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012.
“Our customer makes the highest demands on the performance capability and flexibility of its production facilities,” emphasizes Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG. “KUKA Systems delivers all of this cutting edge technology from a single source.”
