13 february 2024

TechnoSpark has started production of the most powerful exoskeleton in Russia by order of Norilsk Nickel.

The device with a load capacity of up to 60 kg will be used in the field of construction and equipment repair services, a Nornickel_life channel on the Telegram social network reported.

Industrial exoskeletons are indispensable assistants in enterprises. They not only enhance a person's capabilities, but also reduce physical exertion when lifting, carrying and holding objects.

"We have the opportunity to evaluate the exoskeleton in detail and choose the necessary direction for its modification. The device will be manufactured at the facilities of the TechnoSpark Group's contract business. These are the production of parts, metalworking and assembly of high-tech equipment," said Vladislav Davydov, project manager, Chief Manager of the Norilsk Nickel Digital Technology Development Center.
