In 2022 and 2023, industrial robot manufacturer FANUC will supply 1 300 robots to four plants of Vokswagen Group. Most of them will destine for the Volkswagen manufacturing plant in Bratislava, Slovakia.
The main Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg will also receive a large batch of robots. The all-electric ID.3 is due to roll off the production line there from 2023, and FANUC robots will assist with its body construction. FANUC robots will also contribute to the expansion of e-mobility in Audi’s new battery assembly plant in Ingolstadt.
The fourth plant that FANUC will supply as part of the major order is the Audi plant in Győr, Hungary, where there has been close cooperation between the two companies for years.
“We are delighted that we can now extend our long-standing and trusting cooperation with Volkswagen to the Bratislava plant,” says Ralf Winkelmann, Managing Director of FANUC Deutschland GmbH.
