Soldering technology specialist Kurtz Ersa focuses on automation concepts

To this end, a well-coordinated Kurtz Ersa team of engineers has been working intensively for three years to develop intelligent solutions for automation projects in industrial production. After the change of name at the start of 2020, “Kurtz Ersa Automation” will now become the official and central contact point for automation competence within the Kurtz Ersa Group. On the one hand, as in previous years, automation concepts will be realized with the in-house, established brands Kurtz and Ersa, and on the other hand, the existing know-how in automation technology will now be made available to the international market of various industries. An example of this is a current project from the automotive industry for a fully automated solution in the field of electronic module assembly including the integration of Ersa soldering technology. All in all, a holistic turnkey solution, realized with proven, robust components and systems from the Kurtz Ersa Group.

Whether internal or external – as a fully-fledged member of the experienced machine manufacturer Kurtz Ersa, Kurtz Ersa Automation delivers precisely fitting systems that convince in terms of functionality, quality and adherence to delivery dates. Kurtz Ersa Automation focuses on the automation of complex assembly and testing processes, taking into account the logical aspects of meeting the requirements of Industry 4.0.

With the concentration on automation technology, there is also a change in the management at the Wertheim location: Ersa Managing Director Ralph Knecht is now once again devoting himself primarily to his tasks for Ersa GmbH and is handing over his responsibilities regarding the former Conline GmbH to Olaf Klink, who is taking over the function of Managing Director of Kurtz Ersa Automation GmbH. Since the beginning of January 2020, Olaf Klink has been concentrating primarily on the strategic and sales issues of Kurtz Ersa Automation GmbH. The 51-year-old has 20 years of specialist and management experience in the automation sector on the international stage, including major successes in the automotive industry. Olaf Klink brings along the knowledge that Kurtz Ersa Automation needs for its new orientation. “Treat the impossible as if it were possible” is the credo of the native Osnabrücker. This bon mot, which goes back to Goethe, is symbolic of the Kurtz Ersa Automation approach to approach future tasks and position itself in automation technology as a solution provider for complex tasks. The demand for complex, far-reaching and holistic automation systems is unbroken. Kurtz Ersa Automation will exploit the future potential that lies in automation technology.
