The initial situation
How can you optimize your own robot assembly processes? In exactly the same way as we do it for a customer: “We ask the right questions, find a suitable, customized solution and turn it into a practical application,” says Henning Borkeloh, Vice President of Advanced Technology Solutions at KUKA Systems. The KUKA LBR iiwa lightweight robot had already excelled in its role in the assembly of the in-line wrist of the QUANTEC robot. The LBR iiwa’s next task was to screw the gear units for the link arm into place. The “rolling assistant” took up its role on the assembly line at the beginning of 2015.
