Shorter development cycles by use of 3D printing

To develop and build robotic arms and grippers smart and efficiently, KUKA reaches out for innovative technologies like 3D printing. In the design process of new robots and new custom applications they early and often use 3D printing to fasten the development cycles.

Experience matrix production live in the KUKA SmartProduction Center

Experience today the production of tomorrow at the KUKA site in Augsburg. In the KUKA SmartProduction Center, the versatile and flexible matrix solution becomes reality. Different products can be manufactured on the same system – customized production is possible.

Humans and robots – side by side

Poor concentration and fatigue – never! Robots have always been seen by their human counterparts as reliable and indispensable “colleagues”. They are now increasingly handling the welding, bending, cutting, separation, transfer and storage of pipes and tubes. Thanks to artificial intelligence and machine learning, robots are set to become even more flexible and will eventually replace purely repetitive robots altogether.


At Japan’s largest trade fair for healthcare, KUKA is showcasing an LBR Med ultrasound demo. It represents a potential application in which a sensitive robot can assist a physician. Visit the KUKA booth from 21 to 23 February at the international trade fair for the medical sector at Intex Osaka.

Robotics is breaking through into multiple service industries

Robots are moving into the service industries, working collaboratively with people and with each other in logistics, agriculture, medicine, retail, hospitality and more. In Munich, from 19 to 22 June, 2018, automatica will show why the automation industry is getting excited about new developments in service robotics, how these robots are seeing strong growth and are even emerging within some unexpected areas.

Robot or cobot: The five key differences

The concept for cobots (collaborative robots) was born in 1995 as part of a research project spearheaded by the General Motors Foundation. The idea was to make robots so safe that they could literally work hand in hand with people. Now, twenty years later, cobots have found a place on many factory floors – and also in public awareness. And yet many don’t really understand how cobots are different from robots.

iRex 2017 – The Robot Revolution

The iRex 2017 was held in Tokyo to discuss the topic “The Robot Revolution Has Begun – Toward Heartwarming Society” and showcased the latest developments in the robotics industry with a special focus on subjects such as artificial intelligence, big data, and new communication strategies and networks.
