Disciplines and competencies

As a system integrator, AWL provides added value as a specialist in spot and arc welding and in laser welding. Nowadays, other automation techniques such as glued joints, vision systems, product handling, quality control and traceability are just as important. All disciplines are represented in our organization. At AWL, we focus on the automotive, metalworking and automation industries, where high levels of automation and a high degree of flexibility are essential.

With branches in the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, China, Mexico, the United States and the United Kingdom, we support our customers all over the world. This guarantees our customers’ global productivity by means of smart and reliable solutions in the field of high-end automation, robotization and joining techniques.

Experience and research

De voorsprong die AWL had met laserlastechniek, zorgde ervoor dat AWL de voorkeursleverancier werd voor toeleveranciers van de auto-industrie. Jaarlijks worden met AWL-machines onderdelen gemaakt voor tien miljoen auto’s wereldwijd. AWL heeft het vermogen behouden om, ondanks de grootte, snel te kunnen schakelen, om te kunnen blijven voldoen aan de wensen van de klant.

AWL investeert veel in onderzoek en ontwikkeling. De Research & Development-afdeling is in zes jaar tijd gegroeid van vier naar veertig medewerkers. Deze afdeling is een belangrijke schakel in de vooruitziende blik van het bedrijf en daarmee met het zekerstellen van de toekomst, in nieuwe technologieën en markten. Onze klanten profiteren hiervan mee.
