KUKA IS AN INTERNATIONAL LEADER IN ROBOTICS AND INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS
To serve a broad range of industries, KUKA needs an extensive range of robots and an even more extensive range of custom tools and software to equip those robots.
When combined, the systems they build are part of an emerging category of technologies that create digital, “smart factories,” referred to as Industry 4.0.
In order to innovate and build robotic arms and grippers quickly, KUKA reaches for another “smart factory” technology, MakerBot 3D printers.
3D PRINTING AND ROBOTICS ARE THE FUTURE OF MANUFACTORING
KUKA is changing the manufacturing industry at a staggering rate, and they owe a good deal of their continued leadership to the speed at which they innovate new technologies and release products like the KUKA KR 3 AGILUS and the KUKA LBR iiwa.
By building robots that can safely interact with humans, KUKA enables an entirely new model of manufacturing that combines the power and precision of robots with the reactivity and flexibility of a human problem solver.
The future of manufacturing depends on the efficiency and reliability of these remarkable new systems-and when it comes to building the future of manufacturing, KUKA uses MakerBot 3D printers.
