Curtiss-Wright Corporation’s Sensors & Controls division today announced that it has entered into a multi-year agreement with German automobile manufacturer BMW Group to provide its Exlar® brand of integrated, roller screw driven electric actuators for use on robotic weld guns. Under the agreement, Curtiss-Wright will provide all required robotic weld gun actuators for two new facilities currently under construction in North America.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by BMW to provide our industry-leading Exlar GS Series integrated motor/actuator,” said Graham Macdonald, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Sensors & Controls division. “This new agreement validates the stellar benefits of our design in terms of power density, performance, service life and overall weight savings relative to the requirements of robotic weld gun applications.”
The Curtiss-Wright Sensors & Controls division facility in Chanhassen, MN is performing the work under this contract.
