FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 21, 2011 - Monschau Germany – The cleaning technology specialist Dürr Ecoclean GmbH has finalized a long-term supply agreement with the BMW Group. The agreement provides that Dürr Ecoclean will supply BMW over 40 robotic cleaning cells with short delivery times by the year 2014. The cleaning systems are part of several major investment programs by BMW in Asia and Europe. The first EcoCFlex type robotic cleaning cells that the car maker ordered within the scope of the order will be delivered to BMW in Landshut, near Munich, in the third quarter of 2012.

Dürr Ecoclean will install cleaning technology for the crankcase of the new modular drive component for series motors with three, four and six cylinders at the BMW foundry in Landshut. Other robot cells for treatment of cylinder heads, crankcases and crankshafts are planned for the plants at Hamshall, Munich and Steyr. BMW produces various engine series there. In existing plants the flexible cleaning cells from Dürr Ecoclean will partly replace older transfer systems for cleaning engine parts.

The framework agreement confirms the longstanding, successful cooperation between BMW and Dürr Ecoclean. The EcoCFlex robot cell was first installed at the Munich plant in 2005, and has since been continuously further developed jointly with BMW. For Dürr Ecoclean the framework agreement will contribute to a solid base workload at the Monschau location in the coming years.
