KUKA Mission 2030
By providing intuitive and intelligent automation solutions, KUKA will support manufacturing companies of any size to meet tomorrow’s requirements.
Making easy automation available for everyone
KUKA Group – focus on the future
With its deep competencies and innovative power – from robotics, to automation, to intralogistics, to medication management – KUKA offers its customers a wide range of intelligent automation solutions and services as well as innovations and new concepts that are easily scalable for customers.
Three times easy:
easy to set up, easy to operate, easy to extend
“Our mission until 2030: automation will be available to everyone – retaining the well-known KUKA power and reliability while being simpler and more intuitive at the same time. This will lower the entry threshold and allow new customers to grow into automation powerhouses themselves. Programming a robot will soon be as easy as working on a PC today,” says Peter Mohnen, CEO of KUKA Group. So at KUKA, the idea of easiness is guiding the whole process of creating automation solutions for a new era: from an easily accessible ecosystem for developers and end-users, to an easy setup, configuration programming and finally to an easy operation and use – all combined with readily available software and hardware components. It will be a modular, future-proof operating system with a simplified user experience creating an exceptional customer value: the iiQKA Ecosystem.
Setting up productive partnerships
In a world that becomes increasingly digitalized and complex, solving tasks alone or in an efficient way becomes more and more difficult. For this very reason, KUKA is increasing its active memberships in various strategic alliances, as well as further strengthening and diversifying its network of partners. Partners whose broad expertise meets the needs of individual industries and who will, together with KUKA in a global automation community, shape the future of automation. Partners with whom KUKA is creating and developing the Ecosystem of the future – for experts in robotics and automation, but also for people who have never thought of using a robot before. Accompanying them all into the new world, reducing their costs and increasing their benefits – that is KUKA’s top priority, together with its renowned partners.
Future-proof: meeting the challenges of today and tomorrow
The coronavirus pandemic has changed supply chains, workflows and production processes. New technologies are helping the industry to adapt to this change in a sustainable way. Automation, robotics and digitalization are important elements for companies to develop a robust and resilient line-up for the future. Providing suitable solutions for its customers’ requirements, KUKA’s subsidiary Swisslog has already implemented several logistics projects for the Asian e-commerce giant Lazada.
After the coronavirus pandemic, there will be a real push towards more automation, especially in logistics and healthcare, which will have a major impact in the medium term.
Robotics and automation are key today, as are digital concepts. KUKA is a pioneer in industrial automation and also offers the right platform for products, solutions and innovations related to the digitalized and sustainable production of the future
Bringing future automation to new industries
Taking control of the future
The relentless development in automation and robotics is already evident from current projects of the KUKA Group. These include major orders from the battery and e-mobility sectors, as well as the establishment of additional robot types in the portfolio, such as the KR SCARA and KR DELTA for small parts assembly, material handling and testing tasks. Also the complete area of Digital Services will come up with new software solutions and Microservices for single applications up to production plants. Furthermore, integrated AI applications are provided by Swisslog in the field of intralogistics. So, with KUKA Group’s comprehensive know-how and its variety of intelligent automation solutions, its customers will be able to remain in control of future challenges.
