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

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.

In the end of last year KUKA Systems do Brazil Ltda. celebrated their 18th anniversary with an event to give a special thank to their employees for doing a great job in more than 18 years! Beside delicious food KUKA Systems Brazil challenged their employees with a quiz: They had to find out the period of employement of each other. Therefore each employee received a KUKA cap and a card with a number on it. The caps were embroidered with the employees name and the number of years they have worked for KUKA. Afterwards they had to find the colleague who wears the cap with the number of years on it that matches to the number on the card they have received. That little quiz was a nice start into a great celebration of enjoying working together for more than 18 years!

Recently there is hot TV program called “The Biggest Celebration on Earth” promoted by BBC. This is talking about the Chinese New Year celebration. The Rooster Year is just around the corner and will begin from 28th of January. Chinese New Year, known as “Spring Festival” is the most important holiday for Chinese people. It is defined to be the very first day according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Normally, the celebration starts from the New Year’s Eve and lasts till the middle of the first month. Celebration occurs after cleaning the whole house and displaying traditional new year decorations. This festival is for family reunion and relatives gathering. People normally visit relatives and friends, give little kids red packets, do some shopping, watch traditional Chinese shows, launch fireworks, and plan for the coming year. The celebration will sometimes be highlighted with a religious ceremony given in honor of heaven, earth, the family ancestors and other gods. History It is unclear when the exact date of the very first New Year celebration in China was. However, it is well believed to start from the year end religious ceremony during the Shang Dynasty (1766 BC – 1122 BC). Some others believe that it started from as early as Emperor Yao and Shun (~2300 BC). At first, the date of celebration varied from mid-winter to early spring. With the maturity of the solar base calendar, Emperor Wu (157 BC – 87 BC) of the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220), established the first day of the first month as the beginning of the year, and it remains afterwards.
