KUKA at the CIIF 2018

With more than a dozen exhibits at this year’s China Industrial Industry Fair, KUKA showcases their latest innovative products and Industrie 4.0 solutions for intelligent production. See you from September 19 to 23 in Shanghai!

Important information in the overview

Automation has reached record levels: more and more robots are being used around the world every year. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly important to connect traditional mechanical engineering knowledge with Big Data expertise and to make new technologies readily accessible. At the 20th CIIF 2018 in Shanghai KUKA is showing how this can be achieved.

  • When: September 19 to 23, 2018

  • Where: National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai, China – Hall 8.1, Booth E174

  • Booth size: 594 sqm

  • More than a dozen exhibits

Flexible production landscapes with mobile robotics

Mobile, flexible robot systems and automation concepts are increasingly being used in modern production halls.

At the CIIF, visitors can experience a world premiere: In addition to the KMR iiwa released this year, the KMR Cybertech nano is the second KUKA mobile robot to be available as a serial system. The KMR is location-independent and highly flexible – the perfect basis for meeting the requirements of Industrie 4.0.

At the CIIF, the mobile robots demonstrate together the variety and possibilities in a machine tending application, handling different components at the KUKA booth.

Easy-to-use solutions are paving the way for robotics in everyday working life

With the new LBR iisy lightweight robot, KUKA is paving the way for robotics in day-to-day work: easily learned, simply understood and immediately deployable.

The prototype showcased at the CIIF expands the product portfolio for collaboration with humans – without the need for any safety fencing. A further market requirement: easy operation of the systems. With the LBR iisy, KUKA aims at a target group that knows the processes in manufacturing very well, but is not necessarily capable of programming a robot.


Shaping the factory of the future with 3D technologies

3D simulation is an important element in the design of the factory of the future. KUKA´s partner Visual Components offers innovative solutions in this field. The Finland-based company has specialized in software solutions for 3D simulation in factory planning. For KUKA, the simulation tool is an important milestone with great potential for solutions in the KUKA simulation ecosystem. After all, simulation is one of the key elements for technological innovations such as artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, cloud technology and the Internet of Things.

Entering the intelligent warehouse using virtual reality

Visitors at the KUKA booth will also experience live demonstrations of Swisslog’s new Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies.

The Swiss logistic expert for automated warehouse solutions is using AR and VR to bring benefits to their customers right from the design stage through to supporting service maintenance. For example, visitors can take a virtual tour of a warehouse equipped with different Swisslog technologies.

Looking ahead to the smart future with Virtual and Augmented Reality.

KUKA Connect enables networked production

For KUKA, Industrie 4.0 stands primarily for networking of automated processes. Intelligent machines will soon collaborate in global networks.

At the CIIF, you can get to know KUKA Connect: a cloud-based analytics and intelligence platform that provides users insight to their KUKA robot activity from any device at any time.

The machines – networked via KUKA Connect – collect and exchange data and thus offer transparent information concerning machines and processes.

Once a robot is subscribed to KUKA Connect, users gain access to real-time alerts and big data analysis to avoid risk of unplanned downtime.

With KUKA Connect you can access the data of your robots everywhere and at any time.

Integrated automation concepts with KUKA die casting

Foundry products are the basis of an endless variety of everyday items – from smartphones to vehicle transmission housings. For the most part, these kinds of components are manufactured in die casting processes.

KUKA has all die casting tasks covered from the die casting machine onwards: starting with foundry-compliant unloading from the die casting machine through to mold spraying and the cooling-off of components and on to deburring using trimming presses and trimming tools.

At the CIIF, you can discover proven KUKA in-house solutions for process simulation, visualization, downstream machining, cell control and quality assurance.
