A total of 25 KUKA robots are in operation at Possehl Electronics in Niefern, Germany. There, they manufacture complex timing cases for electric power steering systems for cars.
Over a period of seven months, more than 20 teams will be competing at the KUKA Student Award in France. Each team comprises one professor and four students. The ultimate goal is to conceive a 3D printed bridge with a newly developed 3D printing KUKA robot. For this educative project KUKA France has realized an innovative 3D printing head. The winner will be granted a KUKA industrial robot.
