Dürr has put in place its 13,000th robot, this one in a new paint shop for General Motors in Changwon, Korea. This is the first installation of the new Dürr robot generation for GM.

It is an EcoRP E043i and will be used to paint the interior of passenger cars at GM in Changwon. Dürr says  this specific robot is special for many reasons: it is the first time Dürr’s third-generation robot will be used at GM, as the automaker relies on fully automated painting with the latest application technology.
