A KUKA Industries team experienced a special success last week: The KUKA Genius, our new compact, modular friction welding machine was awarded with the Red Dot Design Award 2015 in the category product design. The Red Dot is a recognized quality seal for excellent design. Each year, an international jury of experts is awarding products of various categories from all over the world. From thousands of submissions, KUKA Genius could convince with its appealing design coupled with high functionality, as well as a simple and ergonomic operation. “Our friction welding machine could prevail among numerous other products and we are proud to belong to the best of this year with our machine”, says Harald Heinrich, project manager research and development. The process of friction welding uses the heat generated by friction to connect different materials. KUKA established this special form of press welding nearly 50 years ago as a new industrial joining process and developed it through such innovations as the short time and the positioned friction welding. With the new KUKA Genius comes a further step of innovation which offers a flexible and powerful solution for a wide product range to create friction welding processes.

Halesowen apprentice Bradley Norton has won a gold medal in the WorldSkills UK engineering competition. The 19-year-old, who is studying at Dudley College, beat nine other young engineers from around the country to come top in the advanced mechanical engineering CAD final. “During the competition, I just blanked everything out and concentrated on the project in hand. On the first day I completed all the tasks but the second day was much harder so I wasn’t expecting to win. It’s great to get a gold medal as it shows everyone how good you are,” he said. Engineering manager Stephen Reed added: “Since joining us, Bradley has really impressed as he picks up things very quickly. We couldn’t ask for a better apprentice.” Bradley is due to complete his HNC in engineering next summer and KUKA is set to sponsor his plans to do a degree in mechanical engineering at Birmingham University.
