Major automation order for electric vehicle production
14.11.2023 - Prodomax has secured a contract with an existing customer for the turnkey design, construction, and commissioning of four robot welding assembly lines in North America.
The order for the company of the Jenoptik group consists of several batches and has a total volume of more than thirty million euros. Delivery is scheduled for mid-2024. In total, more than two hundred industrial robots will be integrated into the four combined lines, which will perform welding, transport and inspection tasks fully automatically. The systems are for a new electric vehicle model of a well-known North American car manufacturer, which will start operating in early 2025.
Prodomax, based in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, currently employs around 180 employees and specializes in process automation in the automotive industry. “As specialist for fully automated assembly lines we have established ourselves as a reliable partner of the US automotive industry,” says Bradley Parcher, general manager of Prodomax.
Companies of the “non-photonic portfolio” of the Jenoptik group offer products, automation solutions as well as services for industrial customers, and above all, support the trend towards more flexibility and efficiency in production processes, especially in the automotive industry.
