The world’s largest manufacturer of locomotives has placed an order on Robotas Technologies Ltd for a number of Mascot Standalone workstations. CSR (China South Locomotive Group) will use the Mascot systems to speed up the hand assembly of circuit boards used across its extensive range of locomotives and rolling stock products.
CSR placed the Mascot order in mid-December 2014, just days after one of its electric locomotives pulled its payload of carriages over the famous Quinhai-Tibet Pleateau, known internationally as ‘the Roof of the World’ route, travelling 1000km in less than 12 hours to set a new record.
“With CSR pointing to innovation at the heart of its business, it’s no surprise that the corporation is keen to adopt process improvement technologies Like Mascot,” claims Martin Kenicer, Robotas Product Specialist. “We’re confident that the new Mascot workstations will help CSR’s production operators keep up with the speed of its trains!”
The first of the Mascot Standalone workstations will be delivered to CSR this month.
