The objective of every automation solution is to boost productivity and quality. You can reach any position with the KUKA Posiflex system – because it allows fast and precise alignment of the workpieces. It is thus ideal, for example, for automated arc welding. For this purpose, service-proven standard robotics components are used, which can be combined to form customized solutions.
The result is highly dynamic automatic positioners with one to three axes. Depending on the specific task, kinematic systems of all sizes can be implemented for payloads ranging from 250 to 4,000 kg. With KUKA you are in a strong position to implement your automation ideas.

Small Robots

Whether it’s the speedy 4-axis SCARAs or the flexible 6-axis jointed-arm robots, these compact, space-saving robots from KUKA are among the fastest and most reliable robots in their class. All of them utilize the advantages of the world’s most dependable and best-selling PC-based control platform KRC. And it goes without saying that this diverse range of 4-axis and 6-axis KUKA robots can be freely combined within a single system – always with the benefits of using the same control platform.

Special Models

KUKA robots are available not just as standard models, but also, for specific requirements, as shelf-mounted, palletizing or press-to-press robots, as well as a version for foundry applications. These special models increase productivity still further as they are optimally adapted to their respective applications.

About us

Company details

The KUKA Roboter GmbH, with its headquarters in Augsburg, is a member of the KUKA Aktiengesellschaft and ranks among the world’s leading suppliers of industrial robots. Core competencies are development, production and sale of industrial robots, controllers and software. The company is the market leader in Germany and Europe and number one in various industries worldwide. KUKA Roboter GmbH employs about 4230 people worldwide. In 2015, sales totaled 909,6 million Euro. 26 countries provide a presence in the major markets of Europe, America and Asia.

The use of industrial robots has increased steadily in recent years. For KUKA’s customers, automation “made by KUKA Roboter” is the decisive key to higher productivity and greater cost-effectiveness. It improves product quality, reduces cost-intensive use of materials and minimizes the consumption of dwindling energy resources. Robots replace the rigid and expensive special machines that were still customary fifteen years ago with highly flexible automation solutions.

In the past, industrial robots were used almost exclusively in the automotive sector and in series production. Thanks to the systematic ongoing development of KUKA robot and control technology, KUKA robots have now become established in many other sectors besides the automotive industry. The primary objective here is the development of applications in new markets – particularly in the fields of foodstuffs, plastics, metalworking, foundry, electronics, medical technology and the entertainment industry.

KUKA is the one robot supplier that has dedicated itself to simplifying every dimension of robotics. The company is committed to supplying flexible solutions for all areas of automation. KUKA establish the robot as an intelligent assistant. He assists human workers with his high quality work and also enables the economic use of robots to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Even today, KUKA is capable of implementing the networking of production and the digital world that is required for Industry 4.0. Automated production facilities have been a reality all over the world for many years. The “Internet of Robotics” already exists. However, these highly efficient, flexible systems have been specific, one-off solutions up to now, individually adapted to the particular customer’s requirements. If industry succeeds in defining open communication and data standards and establishing them worldwide, production processes will become interoperable even far beyond the factory gate. Only then will the “Internet of Automation” come into being – a Cloud solution which fully exploits the potential of combining comprehensive production data, novel production processes, flexible networking and responsive components.

Open networking and collaboration are the core ideas of Industry 4.0. This paradigm shift is already underway at KUKA today, indeed the company is deliberately forcing the pace. After all, robots will play the key role in the factory of the future. By taking these measures, industrial nations – above all Germany – will be able to expand their competitiveness and, at the same time, counteract demographic change. Consequently, Industry 4.0 is neither a Big Bang nor a buzzword that is devoid of meaning; instead, it is a sustainable investment in our future.
