LEAX largest project within automotive has advanced to serial production!
Starting at low volumes and gradually ramping up production according to the customers demand, LEAX Skaraborg, in Falköping, delivers full volumes within a year.
– The start is successful. In this phase we measure everything and fine tune our parameters to achieve the perfect production cycle. Already in May output doubled in our new, automated production line, states Kjell Carlsson, Site Manager.
The customer is an European car manufacturer. The order spans several years, the articles are destined for the next generation of car engines. Hence high quality, tight tolerances and flexible production are of the essence.
– It has been a challenge. But we are already discussing a parallel production line with the customer in order to handle even larger volumes. In my opinion we can not possibly get higher praise than that, concludes Kjell Carlsson.
