New Markets, new Opportunities

KUKA impressively demonstrates the new simplicity, among other things, with iiQKA – the robot operating system as well as the digital ecosystem. "With the right partner network, we are fast – an important aspect in today's world," König continues. Developments such as the new KUKA operating system and the KUKA.Sim simulation software are helping to make the user experience as intuitive, powerful and fast as possible. As a result, more people, companies and markets than ever before are able to take advantage of and drive the enormous benefits of robotic automation. 
One of these markets: the consumer goods industry. In a panel, KUKA industry experts talk about important trends and discuss how the industry can benefit from holistic automation. In this context, KUKA is now adding the final pieces of the puzzle with new robot types such as the KR DELTA hygienic robot in order to be able to automate the entire process chain – from receiving to delivery.

Megatrend Automation: the Future of Production

One of the most important megatrends of our time is electromobility. At automatica sprint KUKA experts will discuss how it is changing everyday life, the economy and our society. "KUKA is well equipped for the current changes in the automotive industry. The ability to plan has become much more complex for the automotive industry and requires both the car manufacturer and the supplier to be extremely flexible and quick to react. KUKA already offers key technologies for almost all tasks: from battery production to the assembly of electric drives and electric axle components to complete body construction for electric vehicles," says Gerald Mies, CEO KUKA Systems.

The portfolio is complemented by KUKA's visionary production concept, matrix production: an extremely versatile manufacturing process for individualized production.In another panel, KUKA experts will also discuss how automotive suppliers in particular can achieve climate targets with the help of robotics and sustainable, regional production.

Virtual Trade Fair Booth and Digital Event Platform

With the digital event platform KUKA iimotion, KUKA is expanding the virtual trade fair booth around automatica sprint with further presentations, discussions and webinars. For example, visitors will gain insight into the smart simulation software KUKA.Sim 4.0. The modular software also makes its contribution to greater simplicity. Details and sequences of robot applications can be simulated even before commissioning and then transferred 100 percent to the real controller: for maximum planning reliability and cost efficiency.
