The technology company KUKA will be exhibiting the latest applications for the laser industry at the Laser World of Photonics in Munich (hall A2 booth 324) from 26 to 29 June: from a laser show application and components such as optics for laser welding through to higher-level system monitoring, the engineering company will display its expertise – also covering the field of Industrie 4.0.
The largest KUKA installation in Denmark, and the industry’s largest robot: the KUKA robot KR 1000 titan is located at Multicut A/S in Vildbjerg, where it supports an FMS system with four CNC machining centers at the largest, heaviest end. There’s also another KUKA robot for milling and deburring operations.
This 3D printing process is also referred to as additive manufacturing. The process makes use of a digital template to create a solid, three-dimensional object. 3D printing processes are now being used in a wide range of industries. KUKA Industries has taken on the role of leading technology company in a consortium of project partners aiming to develop 3D printing capabilities for the automotive and aerospace industries. The development partner, which specializes in joining technology, has been officially involved in the generative manufacture of high-performance lightweight components since February.
Dürr AG has developed robot cells incorporating sensitive LBR iiwa lightweight robots from KUKA that are capable of human-robot collaboration for automated adhesive bonding processes during final assembly in the automotive industry. They help to improve the quality of the adhesive bond between components such as GPS antenna covers or tanks and the vehicle body. They also save time and lower unit costs.
