Dürr sold its 5,000th painting robot in an order to Volkswagen Taubate. In the future, the robot will be painting in the factory in Brazil together with 84 other new Dürr robots in two new top coat lines.
The success story of the Dürr painting robot was introduced in the mid-nineties with the decision by Dürr to launch its own robot, matched in particular with the interests of the paint application technology.
The robots are now also used for painting in the aerospace industry, in wind power plants and in railroad technology. More than 1,000 of the painting robots are installed in Germany, more than 800 in China and more than 1,100 in the worldwide locations.
