May 1, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 1, 2019 – Jenoptik – a global specialist in optimization of manufacturing processes – and its Canadian-based Prodomax Automation arm have been awarded three new orders totalling over US$20 million.
The first order is from a major Tier 1 automotive client for Michigan manufacturing plants, which supplies structural underbody components for a new SUV program. The scope of supply includes assembly lines incorporating traditional welding technologies as well as material handling solutions.
The second order is for an automated assembly system to be delivered and commissioned in late 2019 for production of automotive seating components.
The third order is for the structural welding and module assembly of a battery pack for an electrical vehicle (EV) program.
In mid-2018, Jenoptik acquired Prodomax, a Canadian company specializing in machine integration and process automation with a focus on the automotive industry. Jenoptik and Prodomax have successfully collaborated on engineering technical automation solutions to their combined customer base.
Earlier this year, Jenoptik announced two additional orders worth more than EUR 12 million for automation solutions in North America.
