They have passed all of the tests and are now officially allowed to get to work at the VW plant in Wolfsburg, Germany: Since the beginning of 2016, a mobile micro-system called the KUKA flexFELLOW has been providing assistance to human colleagues during the series production of the Golf in Wolfsburg, Germany – without any protective fences whatsoever. The automobile manufacturer Volkswagen is implementing human-robot collaboration (HRC) at its vehicle manufacturing plant. Screwing the pendulum support into place as part of the drive train pre-assembly process is an ergonomically inconvenient and arduous routine operation. The component, which prevents weaving when there are changes in the engine load, is situated below the drive train and therefore in a difficult position for human workers to access. This is a typical application for robots, which are designed to collaborate with human workers and relieve them of such physically demanding tasks. In the summer of 2015, VW started to test the prototype for this type of automation solution – the “bolt” module from the KUKA flexFELLOW family, which is based on the LBR iiwa lightweight robot. This is a complete system for automating manual screwing-fastening processes. The key benefit of the tiny mobile system is that, If necessary, it can be moved to different locations. These systems can be put into operation in five to ten minutes without the inconvenience of having to rebuild or dismantle the production line. The KUKA flexFELLOW-bolt was tested for three months at Volkswagen’s Competence Center for Technology and Innovation (KTI) at the VW plant in Wolfsburg, Germany and refined for series production under conditions similar to those...

At the beginning of September KUKA Systems held an interesting white moon cakes DIY activity in China. The snowy moon cake originally came from Hong Kong. It’s different from the traditional Chinese moon cake, which is traditionally baked and has a golden yellow color. However, the snowy moon cake’s raw material is glutinous rice; the cake looks white. Most snowy moon cakes have a transparent milky white skin but there are also red, yellow, green and other colors with eatable color powder. They have different tastes and a very harmonious and graceful appearance. The snowy moon cakes are without baking, the process is simple and the taste is soft and smooth, slightly elastic, and it is a very popular cake now in China. Ingredients : 80 g moon cakes powder 32 g water 4 g white oil 80g Moon cake paste (Lotus, sweet bean paste, mixed nuts) Method : 1. Add the boiled water to the moon cakes flour, and then, mix it with the white oil until the dough is smooth and soft. 2. Divide the moon cake paste in 20g and roll it tightly into a ball.   3. Divide the dough into 20g and roll into a ball. 4. Flatten the dough. Place the filling into the center of the dough. 5.Wrap it up tightly and seal the edges; roll it into a ball 6. Press each ball into moon cake mold and then push it lightly out on a serving plate. Cover tightly with plastic film and chill for 1-2 hours. And the result speaks for itself and our colleagues are obviously proud about it:... Read More
Time is flying. The Hannover fair is in full swing. This year many solutions for the industry 4.0 are in focus. Topics like Human Robot Collaboration (HRC), Mobility and Networking play a major role. Especially our Coffe 4.0 application amazes our visitors and spoils with tasty coffee in the sign of industry 4.0. Coffee 4.0: The KR Agilus as a Barista Whether  you add milk and sugar or prefer it unsweetened and strong, everyone likes their coffee in a particular way. That is why we are preparing coffee in a new way: by having two robots serve the drink as mechanical baristas – from order taking through to preparation and serving. Customized products in industrial manufacturing With the Coffee 4.0 application, KUKA is demonstrating what is already possible today. All core functionalities of networked digital production in a smart factory are implemented in a fully operational manner. The required production and system data are thus stored in the Cloud. By scanning the barcode the mechanical barista receives the customer order. The customer used this barcode already before to establish his coffee preferences. The benefits are obvious. For example, system data can be called up from anywhere on a mobile device, maintenance requiremments can be predicted and the Service team can immediately be informed of any irregularities via the Internet. The showcase can be transferred at almost any industrial production process. Instead of grinding and brewing, it could be welding, adhesive bonding, pouring, laser cutting and much more.
