  • Hello Industrie 4.0

  • “the fourth industrial revolution”

    Industrie 4.0 or “the fourth industrial revolution” is the mega-topic in industry. There are not yet any standards for it, nor is there a uniform definition. Buzzwords such as “smart factory”, “smart production” or the “Internet of Things” only describe what the factory of the future could look like. Companies are expecting the intelligent networking of all production-relevant components to deliver a quantum leap in productivity, flexibility and efficiency, thereby safeguarding competitive advantages. The robot will play a key role in this.

    Industrie 4.0 is at the heart of KUKA's strategy

    Intelligent production concepts for the future will not only be able to secure existing jobs in our country but also repatriate production capacities that had been transferred abroad. To this end, the factory of tomorrow must be able to organize itself and continuously optimize its production processes. Industrie 4.0 is at the heart of KUKA's strategy. As the most flexible production element, KUKA robots today already collect data in the production system and supply the data to the IT system. They are the arms of IT in the production system; they provide the link. In the future, IT systems will process the data and return them to the production system via the robots, thereby providing the production system with a basis for gradual optimization. No other component in the production process is currently capable of accomplishing this supporting role as effectively as modern robot systems.

      • KR CYBERTECH nano

      • PERFORMANCE. REINVENTED: KR CYBERTECH NANO.

        KUKA has redefined the parameters for the performance of low-payload robots.

        The KR CYBERTECH nano series offers incomparable performance and power density in the payload category from 6 to 10 kg. With robot types perfectly tailored to individual customer requirements for handling and continuous-path applications covering a wide range of generic tasks, the KR CYBERTECH nano series is setting a new standard that will make the difference.

        Precision. Reinvented.
        The new robots in the low payload category are characterized by their utmost precision. With their repeatability of approx. 0.04 mm, the robots can exploit their strengths to the full, even at high speed.

        Compactness. Reinvented.
        They are extremely compact, extremely light and incredibly streamlined: KUKA robots of the new KR CYBERTECH nano series combine maximum performance with minimal disruptive contours. This opens up a wide range of applications in industrial manufacturing.

        Workspace. Reinvented.
        Customers benefit from maximum freedom in production: the robots masterfully tap workspaces that were previously inaccessible. They can cover long distances, with a large workspace to the rear and a long downward reach. Combining this with their compactness and minimal disruptive contours, robots of the KR CYBERTECH nano series are able to work in all areas that were previously inaccessible to conventional robots.

        Flexibility. Reinvented.
        From confined spaces to large distances – installed on the floor, wall or ceiling, or at any other angle – the KR CYBERTECH nano robots can master a wide range of different requirement profiles in any desired installation position.

        Service. Reinvented.
        The KUKA quality is tangible in every detail:
        • KUKA 24-hour hotline support from technical experts, 365 days a year
        • State-of-the-art remote diagnostic tool
        • Comprehensive global service network
        • Guaranteed provision of standard spare parts , with service assignment commencing within a maximum of 2 hours
        • Support from implementation to production support services and training courses.
          • KR CYBERTECH NANO: Perfected for handling.

          • The new KR CYBERTECH nano series offers you maximum versatility for greater economical flexibility. The fine payload intervals of 6, 8 and 10 kg and the nine perfectly coordinated robot types mean that you can select precisely the robot you actually need. Customers thus benefit from maximum performance with minimum investment and energy costs.

This not only shields the dress package from mechanical influences, but also prevents undesirable whiplash motion during reorientation of the robot. Both torsion-type dress packages and infinitely rotating arc welding dress packages are possible. For the user, this means not only improved component accessibility and optimal protection of the dress package, but also simplified offline programming.

                                • System software

                                • The KUKA system software is the operating system and the heart of the controller. It contains all the basic functions that are required for operating the robot system, such as path planning or I/O management. In addition, further advanced functions are integrated into the system software, which offer you a wide range of options for robot programming.

                                  The software can be simply operated using the KUKA Control Panel. This means that all functions and programming steps can be executed with the robot and the workpiece directly in view, allowing the programming to be checked straight away.

                                  The user-friendly, Windows-based structure of the KUKA system software ensures intuitive operation. Furthermore, the range of functions can be expanded any time using the compatible interfaces. This makes it easy to install additional software packages containing application-specific instructions and configurations.
                                • Security Updates

                                • Security for networked robot controllers

                                  With the innovative use of Ethernet in the robotic environment, KUKA Roboter GmbH is backing an open, manufacturer-independent technology.

                                  The use of Ethernet in the production environment results in significant benefits for the customer: standard components are used instead of proprietary components, making installation and administration of the networks considerably easier.

                                  Alongside the many advantages there are also a number of disadvantages, however, as the increasing degree of networking also constitutes an additional risk for the production network.
                                  As the robots are installed and operated in environments that lie beyond KUKA’s sphere of responsibility, the individual environment must also be considered in its full context by the system user. It is therefore necessary for all parties – from the system supplier to the user and the service center – to be integrated into a comprehensive security concept.

                                  In order to give you as our customer this security in your network architecture, you can download the latest updates from us for your KR C system´after registering by e-mail on first access.

                                                              Intelligent and flexible automation solutions play a significant role in overcoming these challenges both quickly and cost-effectively. Along with packaging machines with automatic format adjustment, highly efficient robots, in particular those equipped with camera systems, have long been established as the backbone of food production.

                                                              The packaging of food now accounts for over 40% of production costs. With rising labor costs, frequent sick leaves resulting from repetitive motions of loading and unloading , and the costs compliance with stringent hygiene regulations, manual packaging means an ever-growing cost pool across the entire process chain. In this context, robots increase productivity in nearly all areas of application, reduce costs and play a key role in competitiveness.

                                                              With its network of specialized system partners, KUKA provides tailor-made solutions for every requirement. Our robots carry out the loading and unloading of your packaging machines, not to mention cartoning, labeling, palletizing and order picking. Or they improve efficiency early on in the processing stage.

                                                            • The driving force behind the big names – the automotive supply industry

                                                              The significance of suppliers for the automotive industry is growing steadily. Suppliers account for almost 80% of value creation; in addition to manufacturing components, they often conduct research and development and are responsible for a large proportion of today’s innovations. At the same time, the demands of automotive manufacturers are steadily increasing: the industry is characterized by ever shorter development cycles, increasing demands in terms of manufacturing quality, productivity and flexibility, and reliable just-in-time deliveries. It is not easy to retain creative leeway in these circumstances, but it is possible thanks to automation solutions from KUKA. With their service-proven functionality, tested the world over, they provide suppliers with a means of optimally meeting the requirements of the automotive industry long term.
