ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates—Strata Manufacturing has entered into an agreement with UAE-based DGWorld (Digi Robotics Technologies) to implement a robotics system in its manufacturing processes, the company announced on Sunday. The agreement will enable Strata, a wholly owned subsidiary of Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala, to automate the company’s operations assembly unit, including drilling, reaming and countersinking of aircraft components.
Once the process is qualified, Strata said it will be integrated into the company’s production line in Al Ain that develops composite aerostructures for aircraft manufacturers.

“Strata’s move towards automating production capabilities with the use of robotics alongside our employees will offer greater efficiency advantages for our global customers,” says Ismail Ali Abdulla, Strata CEO. "This partnership enables us to expand our technological qualifications on several customer programs, making us more advanced, competitive and efficient.”

At present, half of Strata’s manufacturers are based in the UAE.
