KUKA Roboter GmbH, with its headquarters in Augsburg, is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial robots. The company also relies on automation for its own robot production. Most recently, a machining center from Burkhardt & Weber was put into operation. This is used to machine components for the KR QUANTEC robots. The machine is loaded and unloaded by a KUKA robot that also processes the workpieces, measuring up to 1.5 m in length, during otherwise non-productive time.
