Thun and Atlas Copco Tools Create Assembly Team

ENNEPETAL, Germany – Atlas Copco Tools and inner bearings supplier Thun have joined forces to provide manufacturers and retailers with expert support. “Within the context of component assembly, quality is a top priority for bicycle manufacturers and retailers”, says Alfred Thun, managing director of Alfred Thun GmbH & Co. “Our cooperation is called the Assembly Team.”

“Our main customers, the bicycle manufacturers are faced with a whole host of demands, like customer satisfaction, warranties, product liability, traceability, and REACH, etc. In addition, compliance must be ensured with new rules such as those relating to the EU-wide directive governing vibrations in the workplace."

"The current requirements can only be met by using modern methods and techniques. Bicycle manufacturers need to be able to rely on an assembly technology that is capable of working perfectly and reliably day in, day out despite the realities of the factory.”

“Our common goal is to help identify assembly problems and solve them using the latest assembly technology. These technologies are not just suitable for use with inner bearings, but for all other components as well”, concludes Alfred Thun.

Thun is one of the major European suppliers of inner bearings for bicycles. Atlas Copco Tools provides assembly tools for use in special automotive applications, household goods, aeronautics.
