Jenoptik’s Automation business together with Prodomax Automation, a member of its group, have received several orders for products which contribute to making automotive manufacturing more efficient.

The first order is from a major Tier 1 automotive client for one of their manufacturing plants located in Michigan, which shall supply 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 for a production of automotive seating components. The third order is for the structural welding and module assembly of battery packs for an electrical vehicle program. Most of the orders will contribute to the sales of Jenoptik’s Light & Production division in 2019.

Mid-2018 Jenoptik had acquired Prodomax, a Canadian company specialized in machine integration and process automation with focus on the automotive industry. Jenoptik and Prodomax have successfully collaborated on engineering technical automation solutions to their combined customer base. The automation know-how of Prodomax and laser processing experience of Jenoptik facilitate end-to-end application solutions in the automation industry.

“The combination of expertise enables our automation business to step towards becoming an integrated provider of advanced turnkey manufacturing systems – with success as the new orders underline”, says Jenoptik President & CEO Stefan Traeger.

Already at the beginning of the year Jenoptik was able to announce two orders worth more than 12 million euros for automation solutions in North America. (Source: Jenoptik)
