The plastics industry requires flexibility: short life cycles and complex components

Hardly any other industry is characterized by such short product life cycles as the plastics industry. Products and model series are modified even after just a few months. Automation solutions for production must pay for themselves quickly or be designed so that they can be used for the next model series. At the same time, the complexity of the plastic components and the degree of functional integration is constantly increasing.

Manufacturers cover a growing variety of models and efficiently compensate for fluctuations in production batch size. This requires a high degree of flexibility. The increasing demands for flexibility and efficiency are the main drivers of Industrie 4.0. Here, becoming more flexible means being able to react more quickly, individually and adaptively – ideally with automatic and IT-based processes.

KUKA is presenting solution packages jointly developed with system partners at the 2016 K trade fair.

KUKA is developing ready2_use solutions in close cooperation with System Partners

As a consequence, the plastics industry demands solutions and applications that are designed for immediate use and which are simple to operate and integrate. This is why KUKA, along with several system partners, has developed so-called ready2_use solutions, which are to be on display at K 2016. The system partners play a central role in the strategic orientation and definition of solution packages. “We can only define and achieve the added value in collaboration with our customers – with the ready2_use solutions tailored to the plastics industry,” emphasizes Philipp Kremer, Market Segment Manager for Plastics at KUKA Roboter GmbH.
