As an international company, AKE's top priority is to offer our customers excellent service worldwide. In order to achieve this goal in the best possible way, AKE is establishing more and more service locations in addition to the numerous partnerships that already exist. The AKE Group has now been expanded to include our latest service base, AKE technologies LP, which is based in the USA. From there we control our assembly and service operations and are on hand with help and advice to our customers round the clock.
To offer our customers the best possible support, we set up our own Squeak and Rattle acoustic laboratory at our company headquarters in Passau years ago. We offer this laboratory to automobile manufacturers and suppliers for rent. Alternatively, as a service, we carry out the tests with our in-house engineers and technicians for our customers. In order to keep our laboratory equipment up to date and to be able to offer our customers the latest technology, we have brought an innovative recording and evaluation device into our house, the SoundCam.
As an innovative mechanical engineering company, AKE is always on the lookout for the latest technologies that make our systems more flexible, cheaper and faster. We are increasingly using an innovative conveyor belt, the so-called Multi Carrier System. The transport system with magnetic linear motors, which is completely equipped with displacement measuring sensors, brings maximum flexibility to our systems. In assembly systems in which the MCS is integrated, cycle times of just 2 seconds are possible, depending on the component.
