New Robot Guide From KUKA Streamlines the Automation Process
Designed to decrease the apprehension and intimidation some manufacturers might face during their initial foray into robotic automation, the new KUKA Robot Guide makes the process fast and easy to apply the right automation to specific application needs. In three easy steps, users are presented with KUKA robot options based on their industry, application and environment for the perfect automation match.
Within the guide, users can choose between a variety of industries, including automotive, food & beverage, medical, plastics, electronics and metal industry, then drill down to almost any application environment. KUKA’s large family of robots are suited for applications requiring extreme precision and repetitive tasks with fast cycle times as well as for those within large foundry operations. Application categories include arc and laser welding, machining, measuring and inspection and range from applying/gluing and painting to handling and assembly. Users can also indicate whether the robot will work autonomously in an isolated environment or collaboratively with humans.
From there, customers can select case studies, application videos, white papers, parameters and details of each suggested robot’s technical specifications. These include payload, reach, mounting positions and other pertinent features for providing an instant recommendation walk-thru without entering a sales consultation.
KUKA is a global automation corporation with sales of around 3.3 billion euro and roughly 14,000 employees. The company is headquartered in Augsburg, Germany. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of intelligent automation solutions, KUKA offers customers everything they need from a single source: from robots and cells to fully automated systems and their networking in markets such as automotive, electronics, metal & plastic, consumer goods, e-commerce/retail and healthcare.
