Digital transformation of the industry as a central topic
The entire industry is working on becoming more digital. KUKA is not only available to companies as a consultant, but also provides support as a product and solution provider. The simulation software KUKA.Sim, for example, enables robot applications to be programmed offline, put into operation virtually, save time and work more efficiently. To this end, KUKA.Sim creates a digital twin – an image of the subsequent production process – for maximum planning reliability.
In addition to hardware, software is also increasingly taking center stage: this includes, for example, the KUKA platform iiQoT, which KUKA developed together with Device Insight and which facilitates remote monitoring and system management of the entire robot fleet. The AI-based KUKA AIVI control system, on the other hand, is revolutionizing intralogistics by ensuring the optimal flow of materials and the perfect utilization of driverless transport vehicles. For systems engineering, KUKA is focusing on the Digital Factory and is pursuing the goal of creating a flexible and adaptable system that optimizes itself via the collected process values during production operation. The entire value chain is taken into account.
