our Sales Team

Inspection and handling tasks for aluminum rims have long been among the standard applications in automation technology, but the demand for ever-higher quality and productivity is constantly opening up new fields of application for robots. Today, robots are already carving the profiles on prototype tires. Operating under such challenging conditions calls for the utmost accuracy. This and other high tech applications have only been realized by the use of high-precision industrial robots supplied by Stäubli.
