Innovative products from the KUKA portfolio
The scope of supply also includes other innovative products from the KUKA portfolio such as KUKA linear units. These linear units significantly increase the workspace of the robot. They are controlled by the same controller as the robot. This allows them to be integrated into work sequences without the need for additional equipment. Energy supply packages developed by KUKA are also included in the scope of supply.
Thanks to its expertise, KUKA has been a long-standing and experienced partner to the automotive industry. For more than 40 years now, BMW has relied on KUKA technology from Augsburg. We are delighted by the successful continuation of this partnership.
