In early 2014, Textron Specialized Vehicles acquired an assembly line for 2-cylinder engines from Weber Motors. The line consists of semi-automated manual work stations with PLC-controlled tools e.g. for screw tightening and oiling.
Additionally two KUKA robots are handling the engines through several, automated assembly and quality control stations. All stations are connected by an automated transport system, which is controlled by Kontron AIS line controller software.
