Industrial robot manufacturer Fanuc and German carmaker BMW have signed an agreement for the supply of 3,500 robots for new production lines and plants.
Fanuc robots will be used in the production of current and future-generation BMW models.
The robots will be primarily used in body shop construction and for the production of doors and bonnets.
Furthermore, in cooperation with manufacturers of hose packages and traversing axes, Faunc will provide peripheral components.
The first robots were installed at the end of 2019 and various further robots will be used at BMW’s German and international production sites in the coming years.
