Intelligent networking by KUKA

For production systems in the age of Industrie 4.0, it is important to have information available in real time. This is now a reality in the manufacture of carbon fiber-reinforced (CFR) components at the company’s plant in Garching, Germany. To achieve this, Voith relied on the expertise of KUKA: the Augsburg-based automation specialists helped with the horizontal networking of the system via OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) as well as dedicated machine maintenance.
