Robotics used in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries must meet special requirements. In January, KUKA introduces its new "Hygienic Oil" portfolio and robots in the "Hygienic Machine" (HM) design. These are designed to avoid potential contamination and meet the highest hygiene requirements.
KUKA and Ford Otosan in Turkey sign a new framework agreement to supply more than 700 robots for the next generation of electric and networked Ford commercial vehicle projects at Ford's Kocaeli plants. The contract continues a partnership between the two companies that has been in place for more than 20 years.
