Blackbird Robertersysteme announces partnership with Abicor Binzel
The collaboration will enable Blackbird to provide better support for its global customers, from technical sales to application support, right through to expanded on-site customer service for international installations.
As of July 2022, Abicor Binzel, which has almost 15 years of international expertise in the laser joining sector, will offer Blackbird's integrated system solutions for remote laser welding.
Remote laser welding with galvanometer-based scan heads has become a key technology in numerous industrial sectors. In the automotive industry and the electromobility sector in particular – e.g. for the manufacture of batteries and fuel cells – this joining technique is used to safely manufacture highly innovative composite materials and therefore facilitate the development of pioneering products. A small, flexible enterprise, Blackbird offers a range of services including comprehensive system integration as well as software-supported control technology with an intuitive user interface.
The new partnership will ensure that every customer receives optimum support – from their individual request, through to years of after-sales support. In the future, there will be markets that are exclusively served by one of the two partners.
'In Abicor Binzel we have found the perfect partner with over 75 years experience in welding technology in order to provide our shared global customers with even better support,' said Karl Christian Messer, Managing Director of Blackbird Robotersysteme GmbH. 'Furthermore, we are also convinced of the following: Strong alliances are the technology and market leaders of tomorrow.'
'We are excited to have gained another strong partner in Blackbird Robotersysteme, a partner who has impressed us with their innovative system solutions, particularly in welding applications in the electromobility sector. This collaboration adds an important puzzle piece to our holistic approach to serving our customers from the automotive industry,' added Dr Andreas Kahn, Director of Global Laser and Sensor Business at Abicor Binzel.
The firm's CTO, Professor Dr Emil Schubert, also added: 'Blackbird's complete solutions with their highly dynamic laser scan systems as well as integrated sensor and quality control tools also bring us to a technologically leading position in this sector of welding technology.'
