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.

As promised some of our employees had the opportunity to test the Tesla S through his paces and everyone would prefer to keep the car at the end. The boost of the electric car is very direct and very fast. The difference between the almost silent start and the extreme acceleration is impressive. That’s why you have to pay attention not to be too fast. Sure, the Tesla has a function with an automatic warning system but on a test run you want to try everything. The facts and figures of the tested vehicle speak for themselves – 700 PS HP all-wheel drive, in 3.4 seconds to 100, outstanding tuned chassis and a large space capacity. Tesla promises a range of approximately 460 km. We couldn’t exhaust this in a 30 minutes drive but some of our colleagues tried it at least. The processing – done with KUKA robots – of course is top and the driving behavior fits to such a luxury sports car. “To drive the car is really fun” says Severin Wittmann, Sales assistant Body Structures Sales and Project-Management after the obtained test drive and “preferably I’d like to have it for a weekend to extend it once in a winding mountain route”. Unfortunately we cannot fulfill that desire but who has the chance to drive the car: do it! “It is just phenomenal” adds Severin Wittmann quite enthusiastically and finds only one word to summarize the drive “marvelous”.             VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes...

Like every year the delegation of youth invited all apprentices and trainers to their annual summer festival. With a huge pavilion, hot food and cold drinks the summer festival becomes successful! All apprentices and trainers came together to review the past year of apprenticeship, here at KUKA. In connection with the informative meeting, there was the summer festival, where not only our “old bunnies”, but also our newcomers, who will start in September their apprenticeship here at KUKA, were welcomed. In this way the newcomers could learn more about each other. They also got some important tips from our apprentices for their apprenticeship. Although the weather wasn’t very well, all the apprentices and trainers had a good time at summer festival 2015! In this sense we wish you all a recreative vocation and a fresh start into the new year of apprenticeship! Also we wish our newcomers a great start for their apprenticeship and their time here at KUKA. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes... Read More
