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.

LBR iiwa and assembly worker work hand in hand

KUKA_LBR_iiwa_Duerr_featured

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.

Research meets industry at the most important networking event for robotics. From 22 to 24 March 2017, KUKA will be taking part in the European Robotics Forum (ERF) in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Innovative Škoda factory succeeds with KUKA LBR iiwa

Škoda Auto, MATADOR Group and KUKA have come together in the town of Vrchlabí, Czech Republic, for a manufacturing initiative without borders or fences. This is happening in an automobile factory that produces direct-shift-gearbox automatic transmissions. There, an industrial robot does what industrial robots do best: grow productivity, reduce costs and improve output quality.

KS PULSE: the pallet-based transport system from KUKA

KUKA_Pulse_featured

KS PULSE (Propulsion Using Linear Synchronous Energy), the pallet-based transport system from KUKA Systems, quickly and safely moves the various body components through the individual workstations of an automated assembly line – thus reducing non-productive times and downtimes. KS PULSE is the optimal solution for high-volume production systems. The KUKA experts implement it in the context of complete solutions.
