The overall common goal is to take care of the soldiers in the best possible way, when Kongsberg Defense and Aerospace (KONSGBERG) and RIVAL collaborate on the weapons station productions.
It requires outstanding quality and documentation to produce critical and costly components for KONGSBERG’s Remote Weapon System (RWS). If something goes wrong, it has big consequences. In the extreme, it can cost human lives.
“Good enough” does not count
RIVAL has invested millions in equipment, employees and procedures in order to meet KONGSBERG’s requirements and expectations. “An important element in being successful is that our employees go to work with the right attitude and the right skills,” project manager Flemming Hansen says.
“They know that ‘good enough’ does not count for our customers. The requirements are extensive, and we work every day with great fervour to fulfil them. We know, it makes a difference for both our customers, our job satisfaction and, in the end, for the Danish soldiers out in the field.”
Production at the DMG MORI Centre
In the production hall, RIVAL’s DMG MORI DMU 75 and DMU 65 with a PH cell are the focal point of the collaboration with KONGSBERG. RIVAL’s CNC expert Jakob Koch Pedersen has the overall responsibility here.
