Close alliance between design know-how and engineering expertise
The award is the result of a close alliance between design know-how and the art of engineering. In the development of new KUKA products, design expert Mario Selic is consulted at a very early stage. The results of this cooperation speak for themselves.
KUKA quality comes out on top
The 3,203 products entered in the competition were evaluated not only on the basis of design aspects, but also with regard to criteria such as innovation, ergonomics and environmental compatibility. The KR 16 scored, for example, on account of its very low particle emission, and its versatility and flexibility. The KR 1000 TITAN impressed the jury with its prodigious strength. The powerful, streamlined design was also rated very highly. As well as being graceful to the eye, both robots offer long service life and the accustomed KUKA Roboter quality.
For KUKA Roboter, the design accolade is renewed confirmation of its creativity, innovative drive and technological leadership. It has always been the company’s motivation and goal to bring its customers added value in service, quality and performance with each and every product. And if this approach happens to be rewarded with a prize, so much the better.
