Welding Developments from Kuka Robotics at FABTECH 2016 Las Vegas
Official KUKA Robotics System Partner Midwest Engineered Systems has partnered with several international industry leaders to develop a complete and scalable additive metal manufacturing solution. Additive manufacturing commonly referred to as Industrial “3D Metal Printing” is a digital process, which uses 3D design data to build components in layers by depositing material. Learn about the KUKA Robotics at FABTECH 2016 Las Vegas.
Innovative Solutions for Palletizing and Packaging at PACK EXPO 2016
KUKA will feature how it is possible to use traditional industrial robots in collaborative applications by incorporating auxiliary safety technology. Those visiting the KUKA booth will get to see and interact with a KR 10 R1100 AGILUS robot in a fence-less application. With the use of area scanners, this demonstration represents a work cell environment that allows for fence-less solutions offering speed and throughput for automation cells but still safe for the human to enter the area when needed. Learn about the KUKA Robotics Hands-On Demonstration at Pack EXPO 2016.

KUKA Global Partner Donates Robots to Dayton School
February 2016 – Auto glass company, Fuyao, recently donated robotic arms to a Dayton tech school to use for training and experience so students can develop and hone their skills in order to prepare for a future career in the industry.
Fuyao is one of KUKA’s many global partnerships. The relationship between the Fuyao and KUKA has been established through the use of KUKA’s robotic arms moving and guiding glass through factories, assembly, and manufacturing processes. Robotic arms like these can build a stronger foundation of learning for students who participate in STEM education classes and career paths.
“We want the students to build and develop job skills and create a pipeline of young people who have what the need to begin an excellent career,” said John Gauthier, president of Fuyao Glass America Inc.”
High School Students Becoming Certified Programmers
Students from Benjamin Russell High School in Alabama will soon be presented the opportunity to work hand in hand with KUKA robots. Students will be able to set themselves apart from the competition by earning robotic programming certifications. This initiative is being led by teacher Anthony Hart who just completed KUKA’s in-house training program in hopes of bringing the project to the classroom.
“I hope some of the students pursue careers in robotics,” said Hart, in his second year of teaching robotics at Benjamin Russell. “That’s a big, big career field right now…..”
