On Tuesday 1 August 2017, KUKA Systems welcomed twelve new trainees at its Bremen branch. The first two days were used for the introduction. The trainees should get to know each other and their future employers. This was done by solving tasks and by playing games in which the sense of togetherness should be developed. Together with a new trainee of Swisslog Healthcare GmbH from Westerstede, they will be completing the basic metal course in the training workshop during the coming six weeks. This year’s metal course will be joined by trainees of the following professions: two industrial salesmen, two technical product designers, one industrial mechanic, three mechatronics, two students of the dual course in mechatronics and three students of the dual course of studies in mechanical engineering. We wish our new trainees a good start into their professional life and look forward to a successful cooperation in the future. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 4.5/5 (2 votes... Read More
Interview with the winner Team RAS: In your opinion, why should young researchers take part in the KUKA Innovation Award? First of all it is a lot of fun. You stay together almost two weeks with researchers from all over the world and with robotic experts from KUKA which is one of the main benefits. Secondly, the award accelerates the technical readiness of your innovation. Having an innovation continuously running on a fair is something totally different from having it running in the lab. The videos KUKA produce are of an outstanding quality, made by experts, and you can use them for advertising your innovation possibly for the next few years. Finally, you get valuable feedback during a lots of discussions with possible users and world leading robotic researchers, which you can use to further improve your innovation.   What was your most exciting moment during the competition? The moment directly before the announcement of the winner was of course the most exciting moment during the competition. Every team has worked very hard and invested a lot of time to win the KUKA Innovation Award. At this moment, it was completely unpredictable who of them may win, since they are all worthy winners.   What has changed for you since winning the Innovation Award in April 2017? Our goal is to bring the Airbag from research into the market in order to make human robot collaboration safe. Winning the KUKA Innovation Award is one of the best accelerators you can imagine for achieving this long-term goal. The fair and the valuable presentation of our idea within the KUKA booth led to a... Read More
“With Abt, we have a Partner who is innovative and just as we are technologically very sophisticated. I look forward to the cooperation.” -KUKA-CEO Dr. Till Reuter according to the agreement with ABT-Chef Hans-Jürgen Abt.- The Formula-E is based on pure electric motors and thus technically new ways are created to work more economically, more environmentally friendly and more sustainable. These new standards in Motorsport proved itself in a short period of time as an attractive racing series. Another special feature of electric motors is that they work much more efficiently. With an efficiency of approx. 100% of the electric motors, it is significantly higher than that of the Formula 1 engines. These goals and technological challenges can be found in the KUKA AG, this is due to the reason why Daniel Abt is an ideal partner for the KUKA AG. Since February 2017, he has been sponsored by KUKA. This partnership is symbolized by the KUKA logo on the nose of the ABT Schaeffler FE02 as well as in the box. Daniel Abt is one of the youngest German drivers with his age of 23 and has the starting number 66. With this innovative technology, Daniel Abt was in particular challenged by the clever using of available energy quantities of the Formula-E. He is one of the most popular pilots in the racing world, especially because of his always open and friendly manner. Already in the second season he attract attention for his three reached podium places. In 2009 he won the ADAC Formel Masters and 2010 he became runner up of the Formula 3.

At the Future Day of KUKA Systems in Bremen 21 young talents used their opportunity and gained an insight into the field of automation. Together with the apprenticeship team and numerous helpers of other departments they learned more about KUKA. After getting to know each other and some games in different teams they became active themselves. The project “Building a Robot” was a special highlight for every participant. Thank you to every participating colleague and to the apprentices who enabled this day and supported the group in preparation and realization.

On March 30, KUKA Systems China organized a “Qingtuan DIY” activity in order to prepare the Tomb-Sweeping Day. The sweet green rice ball “Qingtuan” is a famous Chinese traditional snack for this day. The colleagues from KUKA Systems were assisted by some professionals who offered practical tips to prepare the delicious sweets with a unique filling. The rice ball is made from glutinous rice flour mixed with mugwort juice and are usually stuffed with red bean paste. It got its green color from the juice of brome grass that is added to the rice. The taste can be described as sweet with light grass flavor and a soft consistency. According to the records, the custom of making Qingtuan dates back to the Zhou Dynasty over 2,000 years ago. This DIY activity from KUKA Systems was quite different from the tradition one, mainly due to the unique filling of the sweets. It first appeared in 2016 in Shanghai. Since some people lining up for 6 hours to purchase it, it soon attracted huge attention. Compared to the traditional Qingtuan, the filling consisted of salted egg yolk and floss, which made it taste salty and sweet. The Qingtuan got its nice form and patterns from a wooden mold.
