SAR South Africa (SAR SA) has been awarded the contract for a project at Mercedes Benz in East London (South Africa).
The project will be realized in multiple stages over the next two years.
SAR has implemented systems for seam sealing of sheet metal overlaps in car bodies at the BMW plants in Regensburg and Leipzig with the 'value cell'.
Intrac was originally developed by SAR for BMW in Dingolfing and Landshut and introduced in 2008.
The system was so successful that it has been further developed and expanded to this day.
In addition to an automation cell for water filter production, the SAR Group supplied a second robot solution for automated key production on a Sumitomo DEMAG injection moulding machine.
