Yesterday evening 6:30 pm local time in French Guiana an “Ariane 5” space rocket lifts off from space mission launch center in Kourou to its 125 minute flight to transport two satellites into the orbit. Totaly about 9 tons freight were lifted into the sky. Well, but what has that got to do with KUKA Systems?
Our colleagues in Augsburg supplied three years ago an automated welding station for producing the upper stage nozzle of the Ariane 5- launch system. Since then more than 150 noozles were produced in this welding cell. High technology for the space and for safe freight transportation.
Congratulation on the successful mission and to out team for this “Masterpiece of Engineering”.
