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.
KUKA robots and systems have proved their mettle in the toughest industrial applications. The know-how and experience from decades of developing high-performance solutions can be transferred to the nuclear industry: All over the world, KUKA robotic systems provide the basis for the safe, timely and cost-effective decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
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.
Handling asymmetrical objects fast and reliably is now possible thanks to the world’s fastest 3D bin picking solution, which was developed in a partnership between DENSO, EnShape (now part of Cognex), and Eyefeeder®. The solution consists of a cutting-edge 3D bin picking system, a flexible part feeder, and a small 6-axis robot. The identification, retrieval, and positioning of a part is possible within 1.4–1.5 seconds, equivalent to 40 cycles per minute (CPM).
