Automation solutions for the 3C electronics industry

Shortest delivery times, competitive prices – automation in the 3C industry enables cost-efficient production processes. Our powerful small robots and cobots guarantee precision and particularly fast cycle times in the manufacture of computers, cell phones, TVs and the like.

Faster, shorter, better – the challenges facing the 3C industry 

What is the 3C industry?

The 3C industry is one of the most important sectors of the electronics industry and stands for Computer, Communication and Consumer electronics. This involves the production of electronic devices from the segments of computers, communication and entertainment: laptops, tablets, displays, smartphones, game consoles, headphones, monitors, AR and VR devices, and much more besides.

Automation solutions for competitive electronics production 

No other branch of manufacturing is subject to such rapid changes as the manufacture of 3C products, e.g. cell phones or smartwatches. Extremely short product development and life cycles coincide with maximum requirements in terms of speed and precision. For this reason, many manufacturing steps are still performed manually in the 3C industry.

Our robots for the 3C market provide the answer here: they can be implemented quickly and set standards in terms of accuracy and speed. Both the robots and their controllers require extremely little space in manufacturing. The advantageous price ensures that the return on investment is maintained even in the case of short product life cycles. Furthermore, KUKA offers its customers worldwide one of the best service portfolios in the industry with its digital service and local contacts.

Simply strong – the industry-specific robot portfolio for the 3C market

Robots must cover a wide range of applications in the production of computer, communication and consumer electronics. Precision is of decisive importance here, for both the delicate insertion of chips and the lifting of unwieldy components such as LED displays. 

The cobot and small robot portfolio up to a payload capacity of 15 kilograms appears to be tailor-made for electronics manufacturing, including the compact controller.
