New Special Purpose Machines, Income Growth

VT ASYST 01VT-ASYST Kft, the Videoton company designing and producing special purpose machines, testers and complete manufacturing lines has recently delivered two manufacturing equipment and a tester to company Valeo. The value of the package exceeded 100 million HUF. This subsidiary became individual within the Videoton group in the beginning of last year and achieved a significant rise in its income in 2012.
VT-ASYST Kft. supplied two assembly machines and a tester to the Veszprém plant of the French owned company Valeo. The Videoton subsidiary located in Székesfehérvár won the project last year, and so increased its year 2012 income by 100 million HUF.  The special purpose machines designed and manufactured by Videoton will be used to assemble and test components of switch arms.
Videoton engineers had to face increasing challenges as well as more and more complex customer expectations during the work. Mitsubishi 6-axle, so-called „humanoid” robots equipped with swivel joint arms have been built into the assembly and tester workstations, together with a 3-axle dynamometer. Beside the robots several state of the art solutions have been used to accomplish the assembly and testing operations.
The co-operation of the two companies started in year 2002, and since that VT ASYST Kft has supplied several special purpose machines to Valeo Auto-Electric Magyarország Kft located in Veszprém.
Thanks to businesses concluded with existing and new customers, the Videoton subsidiary specialised in the design and construction of unique manufacturing lines achieved a record income of one billion HUF last year and expects further increase in 2013.
