AerotechTelub doubles production capacity for Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife

AerotechTelub doubles production capacity for Elekta's Leksell Gamma
Knife

AerotechTelub inaugurates a new assembly shop on 16 November for the
production of Elekta's Leksell Gamma Knife. An increasing number of
deliveries have meant that our present production facilities that were
built up in the beginning of the 90's have become too small. Therefore,
during the autumn, a large assembly shop has been organized and this
means a doubling of the production capacity compared with the previous
facility.

AerotechTelub's long co-operation with Elekta has developed strongly
during the latest years thanks to Elekta's sales successes. Our role is
in the manufacture and participation in the development work of new
models of the gamma knife, the Leksell Gamma Knife. AerotechTelub now
has a complete system delivery responsibility and in the latest model
there are more electronics and IT than in previous systems. The
manufacture of complex and technically advanced products within the
medical technology area is a good example of how competence and
resources from defence and aviation operations can be utilized.

Elektra is a leading international medical technology company that
offers advanced and innovative clinical solutions and services for
precision irradiation of cancer and non-invasive radiation surgery for
illnesses in the brain such as tumours and vascular disorders as well as
disorders in the central nerve system such as epilepsy and Parkinson.

AerotechTelub is a service company which offers qualified technical
services, maintenance and customer-adapted system solutions within
information technology, electronics and aviation technology for the
military and civil defence, government departments and public
authorities as well as selected sectors of trade and industry.

AerotechTelub is a company within the Saab-group, one of the world's
leading high-technology companies, with its main operations focusing on
defence, aviation and space. The group covers a broad spectrum of
competence and capability in systems integration.
