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. We are already looking forward to the next Future Day 2018! VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes... Read More
Frank Klingemann, CEO KUKA Systems GmbH and Market Owner Automotive, about new challenges in the future between consumer behavior, business models and market trends that influence industry and business: Mobility, digitalization, and sustainability change consumer behavior and in turn the value chain. This poses industry with the challenge of uncertain future development, requiring it to react flexibly to changing market demands. We can offer our customers this flexibility, giving them the scope to create new business models. Our new production concepts pick up on this and combine our experience with new technologies. KUKA has been implementing operator models in the automotive industry for many years, paving the way towards cost-effective, scalable and smart factories, and supporting the production of more than two million car bodies.   » e-mobility is far more than just a new drive type, it’s an established aspect of how we will be mobile in the future.« Human-robot collaboration, connectivity, and future-oriented hardware and software solutions smooth our partners’ way to help them satisfy customers’ requirements. In the e-mobility sector, for example, we offer an extensive solution portfolio from adaptable body construction and battery module production to e-drivetrain assembly systems. E-mobility is far more than just a new type of drive, it is actually an established aspect of how we will be mobile in the future. The paradigm change from ownership to mobility consumption forms the basis for new business models. These market trends can be identified in various forms in all industries, not only in the automotive sector. Our experts develop customized solutions to make sure your new business models are successful. KUKA already provides... Read More
On Friday, 31 March 2017 the apprentices and students in a dual curriculum of KUKA Systems were on the way for the environmental initiative “Bremen räumt auf” (Bremen cleans up). The initiative motivates citizens to volunteer for a clean city so that the participants provided their support for the clean-up campaign and collected litter in Bremen. And KUKA was a part of it. The successful action encouraged an even stronger team atmosphere and it was a change from the usual routine. Thank you to every participant who supported the environmental initiative and who stood up for an environmentally conscious togetherness on behalf of KUKA.

KUKA presented the sensitive characteristics of the LBR iiwa and the possibilities for human-robot collaboration at the MTMS-Machineering 2017. The trade fair for Machines, Tools and Technologies for Smart Production and Engineering took place from the 22nd – 24th of March 2017 in Brussels. KUKA combines intelligence and sensitivity in a collaborative robot: the LBR iiwa. One of the applications showed how the lightweight robot draws a perfect picture of the KMR iiwa with a marker. The LBR iiwa has joint torque sensors in all of its seven axes. With these joint torque sensors, the LBR iiwa can reduce its level of force and speed instantly in case of contact. Therefore the robot can also handle delicate components without causing any damage to them. A special highlight was the application that showed the skills of the LBR iiwa in direct collaboration with humans. Two robots grabbed a shopping bag and provided it. Afterwards it was filled by our staff with a present for our visitors. We work hand-in-hand for you and are pleased with the many visitors at our booth at the MTMS-Machineering 2017.

From March 14 -16 KUKA presented its knowhow at the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2017 in Shanghai, China. The main trade fair in Asia for the photonics industry is particularly tailored to the requirements of the Chinese market. The LASER World of PHOTONICS is the only fair in the Asian region that covers the wide spectrum of the photonics: from research and development to the application in the industry – in individual components or in entire production plants. And KUKA Industries is right at the forefront. The visitors were particularly excited about the exhibited application. A gantry robot in combination with the friction stir welding technology had a strong appeal and attracted the visitors´ attention for the KUKA booth. In this joining process a rotating pin is traversed along the contact surfaces between the workpieces. The frictional heat plasticizes the material, which is welded together. This process is used for example in automobile manufacturing, aerospace or in the electronics industry. Hence numerous visitors and potential international customers could convince themselves of the KUKA welding expertise and the customized solutions at the booth.
