Wittmann Group: Robotic Demand Is Growing
Wittmann Group's robotic business in 2017 was successfully completed, with 50,000 robots sold in its factories in Europe, China and the United States.
In a January 15 statement, the company said: "Customers are growing demand for general robots and there is a growing demand for automation solutions."
According to machinery and equipment suppliers, the production plant has been running at full capacity in 2017 due to strong demand.
In the past two years, the company's Hungary-based Mosonmagyaru Robot Factory and its headquarters in Vienna have "substantially" expanded its production capacity.
The company is also currently in the process of expanding its plant in Nuremberg, Germany and the Pisek plant in the Czech Republic to enhance its automation technology and gripper system capabilities.
In addition, the group has expanded its automation business in the United States and India in the past two years.
