KUKA robots for high payloads tend machine tools

Three KUKA robots from the KR QUANTEC pro family are in operation at the plant of Bizerba SE & Co. KG. They guarantee that aluminum housings are reliably fed to two grinding machines where they are rough and fine-ground and polished. The aluminum housings are used for sausage cutting machines.

KUKA´s largest robot at Multicut

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.

XXL 3D printing using KUKA technology

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.

KUKA robots in microelectronics

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.
