In the new facility, Ålö will be able to handle and test their front loaders with a high degree of digitalisation and automation.

ÅF will deliver a turnkey solution that covers everything from process design, mechanical, hydraulic and electrical engineering to programming, manufacturing and assembly, as well as commissioning. ÅF is also responsible for CE marking, documentation and training of Ålö’s operators.

– The project is complex and technically challenging as the number of variants of front end loaders to be tested is nearly infinite. Process preparation and systematisation are required to create a sustainable system, says Samuel Palmlöf, project manager at ÅF.

Ålö’s factory is in Brännland outside Umeå, and besides its own brands, it is also an OEM manufacturer for several major tractor manufacturers.

The new facility is scheduled to be operational in May 2018.
