NIMAK develops ntcGUN: A robot welding gun

NIMAK has developed the “ntcGUN” robot welding gun especially for use in local foreign markets. The name stands for “NIMAK TÜNKERS Compact Gun” and highlights the two companies’ first joint development. NIMAK has been part of the TÜNKERS Group for more than one year. On the one hand, it is a question of technological flexibility and, on the other hand, the sometimes necessary compliance with local content regulations.

NIMAK manufactures the new “ntcGUN” not only at its German headquarters in Wissen, but also in the USA, Brazil and China, the most important key markets for automobile production. From these production facilities, the largest German manufacturer of robot welding guns and one of the world’s leading providers of resistance welding technology supplies other countries in which automobile production plays a role.

NIMAK makes its know-how as well as “ntcGUN” construction plans, tools and appropriate training available to the Group’s locations in the most important export markets. This guarantees a partially prescribed local value-added in the respective countries. Moreover, the numerous branches located around the world ensure global after-sales service. French OEMs are the target group on the European market.
