Adventure in Brazil

Adventure in Brazil


Posted By on 2014-10-16

I work at KUKA systems in Brazil would like to tell you about a very special team event today : The team visited the city of Atibaia which is located not far from Sao Paolo and famous for its breathtaking views of the mountains. Here, our physical condition was asked and we had to overcome unforeseen heights. A daring climb over a “bridge” consisting of three thin ropes, a kayak tour or a hike  were offered as a great program and the whole team was excited about the trip. We had a great day together and the event has certainly strengthened our motivation and our team cohesion.  It was very dynamic and funny!! Everybody loved the tour. Here you can see the pictures: [show slideshow] VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote... Read More

One week left before the EuroBLECH 2014 starts in Hannover, Germany. One highlights on our booth will be an application for friction stir welding which will be welding components live at the exhibition. Reason enough for us to reflect again on this technology: An extraordinarily sustainable process, called a „green technology“, is friction stir welding. The energy consumption is very low and there is no chemical preparatory treatment needed. Furthermore the load the worker is exposed to is far smaller than in most of the other joining processes, because there is no light arc, no steam and no heavy noise exposure. But how does this work? A rotating, almost wearfree pen is driven along between the two parts to join. Heat is produced by the rotation of this tool, which is why the material is plastisized. Combined with a forward speed this causes the conglomeration of materials and a neat weldseam. This process is especially appropriate for welding non-ferrous metal with a low melting temperature, e.g. aluminum or brass. As the weld is proceeded below the melting points of the joining partners, porosities and cracks are avoided like they are common when the molten mass consolidates. Do you already know our newest film about friction stir welding? This one and a lot more you can find on our YouTube Channel. Or just have a look at the real application next week at the EuroBLECH in Hannover – we are looking forward for your visit! VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes... Read More
KUKA – Plant #1

KUKA has a changeful history in the years of its existence at Augsburg site. Not only re the range of products and services. Also the production facilities have changed several times over the past 116 years. Recently, I had to apply new my passport. In Augsburg, you do this in the administrative center of the city of Augsburg or in one of the citizens service centers in the various districts. And just one of these offices is housed in the former factory of KUKA in Augsburg-Oberhausen. Also resident in the building is a district library, where interested “bookworms” can loan books and magazines.  “Life” is recovered in the former office and factory complex for several years also. Many apartments were renovated lovingly and with large redevelopment effort in the historic substance. How is it to live there?   [show slideshow]               VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes...

Last you got a rough overview on our topics at the EuroBLECH 2014 – our wide range of solutions and services for different needs in automation. Today we present the smallest solution in our portfolio: the KUKA flexibleCUBE. This innovative concept offers an efficient solution for first steps into automation or as an expansion to existing automation systems. The flexible plug & play-solution can be easily and seamlessly integrated into the manufacturing process. High availability and simple operation, combined with exceptional upgrade and expansion options, make the KUKA flexibleCUBE welding cell the ideal manufacturing partner and a safe long-term investment. Combined with service-proven welding equipment available on the market from various leading manufacturers and equipped with a wide range of positioning units the compact cell be perfectly adapted to the specific production volume and welding requirements. If you need a stationary table, a rotary positioner or a dual turnover axis, we deliver the compact welding cell pre-assembled and ready-to-use. At the EuroBLECH, you can see a demonstration of the controls by our experts and see the latest welding application film releases. We are looking forward to your visit!

Exactly four weeks from today EuroBLECH 2014 starts in Hannover, Germany. Our preparations are of course already at full blast and you will already find the first results on our EuroBLECH microsite. Here you can find some informations about the exhibition and our booth. In addition to a showapplikation, which shows our entire range of services as well as a broad overview of different technologies you will find a subject area for controls as a highlight. Whether it is a single solution for a KUKA flexibleCUBE, a controller for a medium-sized cell or a comprehensive package of controls for an entire production line –we have got the right solution for your requirements, and our experts can give you individual advice on site. With the miKUKA standards and products, we offer solutions for automation tasks ranging from simple to complex. The abbreviation “mi” stands for “machine interface” and is synonymous with thorough integration of the control systems into the machines themselves. miControl is a standard modular PLC system designed as open software on the basis of Siemens controllers. In addition to this, miView provides a user-friendly operator control and visualization system. It offers a clever, standardized human-machine interface which is required to ensure efficient operator control and maintenance of the systems We are looking forward to your visit at the EuroBLECH 2014!

Yesterday the popular annual KUKA system football tournament took place at the old “Panzerteststrecke” in Augsburg. Each year the departments form teams and compete in this tournament – the winner of the previous year organizes the event in the next year. Five teams had gathered this year. “We are especially pleased, that we have a lot of new young players new this year”, says Christian Treffler, who organized the tournament this year. He also emphasizes, that we always played particularly fair each year. Since a team would help out another one at short notice with a player. Good luck with the weather, exciting games – and the well deserved little barbecue cannot be missed at the end! And the winner is again the team friction welding – congratulations to the colleagues!
