Applications


Did you actually know in which branch and for which purpuse you can use robots? Certainly in the automotive industry. Also in the food, plastics or foundry industries. One new application you will find in the UK. Our subsidiary KUKA Systems Ltd. develops applications for the disposal of nuclear waste. Together with a resident research facility, testing be carried out in a simulated environment. The robot pick up and handle the radioactive waste. The development with the use of robotics in these critical areas is still going ahead because the use of robot units is a real and viable option.

On our YouTube Channel  you can now find a new playlist on flexible assembly.  There are several videos, especially one new movie of a flexible gear application, shown at the last MOTEK with our partners from Fraunhofer IPA. Assembly solutions based on the lightweight robot LBR iiwa combined with intelligent sensors can be used for the flexible assembly of subassemblies up to final products in the automotive industry as well as in the consumer goods sector.

Rocket Launch


Posted By on 2014-02-07

Yesterday evening 6:30 pm local time in French Guiana an “Ariane 5” space rocket lifts off from space mission launch center in Kourou to its 125 minute flight to transport two satellites into the orbit. Totaly about 9 tons freight were lifted into the sky. Well, but what has that got to do with KUKA Systems? Our colleagues in Augsburg supplied three years ago an automated welding station for producing the upper stage nozzle of the Ariane 5- launch system. Since then more than 150 noozles were produced in this welding cell. High technology for the space and for safe freight transportation. 730 meters weld seam and 14,600 weld spots were made at each nozzle . Delighting precision . Also to this “small” news – 6:30 pm in the north of South America. Congratulation on the successful mission and to out team for this “Masterpiece of Engineering”.

KUKA Systems GmbH has been honored once again this year with the red dot design award – for not one, but two products. The focus was on the KUKA flexibleCUBE and the KUKA Cobra, which have now received the red dot award – product design 2013. KUKA Cobra – award-winning press automation The KUKA Cobra is designed for linking several presses within a press line. The KUKA Cobra is mounted on the robot arm as an additional linear and swivel axis for fast loading and unloading of the presses. The extremely flat and compact design of the axis makes it possible to increase productivity and reduce the space between presses, while uniquely combining the dynamic performance of a linear axis with the flexibility of a robot. KUKA flexibleCUBE – accolade for first step into automation As a first step into automation or as an expansion of manufacturing capacities, the KUKA flexibleCUBE can be simply integrated into the manufacturing process. Targeted planning, fast integration, intuitive operator control and simple maintenance – these are KUKA Systems’ contribution to process reliability in modern manufacturing. The KUKA flexibleCUBE is a standardized compact welding cell. Modular, and with a wide range of automation options.   Our Managing Director, Frank Klingemann, about the red dot – award: “For KUKACobra the use of carbon and structural elements results in a synthesis of engineering, design and innovative technology together with pioneering lightweight construction. And the fact that technology and functionality can have an appealing design as well as being practical and reliable was recognized by the jury also with a further award for our new welding cell...

Automation goes green – the InnoCaT4 project The goal has been clearly stated: Develop innovations and solutions that will meaningfully reduce the energy and resources needed to build car bodies. The consortial InnoCaT4 project is part of the “Innovation Alliance Green Carbody Technologies” initiative. Together with Volkswagen, the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU and fifteen other industry partners, KUKA Systems conducted research on solutions for energy and resource-efficient car body manufacturing in three of the seven subprojects of this consortial initiative. As the world’s leading supplier of engineering and automated manufacturing solutions for sustainable industrial manufacturing in the automotive sector, the systems integrator has what it takes to develop appropriate technologies. “eMil” and Formula Student – the racecar that relies on KUKA expertise About fifty students on the WHZ Racing Team at the West Saxon University of Applied Sciences joined hands to design, develop and build a vehicle in nine months to enter into the Formula Student competition. Their latest baby, called “eMil”, weighed in at 238 kilograms and went from zero to 100 in four seconds without a drop of gasoline. The car is electric, and KUKA Systems GmbH’s machine tool BU built laminated parts for it at its Schwarzenberg factory. The specimen is located in the middle of the Competence Center.   New ways to do spot welding – a spot welding process for aluminum New challenges demand new methods. The materials used by manufacturers have continued to evolve over the years. The same applies to the technologies used. Various sectors now want to use aluminum, which is very difficult to join using... Read More
