“Global Warming” and worldwide discussions about the carbon dioxide footprint, have brought production methods into sharp focus. Energy-efficient robot systems will not only reduce energy costs in a production plant, but also drastically reduce carbon-dioxide emission. In addition, they will also help to reduce investment costs and the life-cycle costs of production plants.

The Webinar discussed:

  • Lightweight robot design
  • Reduction in energy consumption via energy saving robot systems
  • Consumption forecast simulation
  • The consumption-flexible plant

Dipl. Ing. Peter Klueger studied German Literature, Philosophy and Electrical Engineering. In 1990 he joined KUKA Systems overseeing fieldbus communication and new line concepts for automotive body shops. In 1999 he moved to KUKA Roboter where he was responsible for strategic product development for the automotive industry worldwide. Since 2012 he has been responsible for sustainability and energy efficiency inside the KUKA Holding.

As a robotics pioneer, the KUKA Robot Group is one of the leading suppliers of industrial robotics. KUKA today offers a uniquely wide range of industrial robots and robot systems, covering all common payload categories and robot types. This means that KUKA always offers you a robot that is customized exactly for your application and industry, for example six-axis robots of all sizes, palletizers, gantry robots, cleanroom robots, heat-resistant robots, SCARA robots or welding robots. All robots operate with a dependable PC-based control platform. This PC-based robot controller allows the use of PC technology, such as remote diagnosis, Microsoft Windows interface, field bus, Soft PLC, OPC Server and much more. The standards set here by KUKA have convinced robot users worldwide, making KUKA a world leader in the field of industrial robots with PC-based controllers.
