Under the slogan “iintelligence 4.0_beyond automation,” KUKA demonstrated automation solutions of the future at Hannover Fair 2018. The event had several world premieres from KUKA, including LBR iisy, our new, powerfully simple collaborative robots, and "i-do," our concept consumer service robot.
This year we highlighted some of our partners who were also at the fair.
IBG Automation is a long-time partner of KUKA, based in Neuenrade, Germany. IBG is well-known for their creative, innovative solutions to hard challenges. At Hannover Fair they were showcasing a dual arm robot constructed out of two KUKA LBR iiwas and two Schunk hand grippers. The system could be controlled and programmed via tracked arm and hand movements of its human operator. Have a look at this unique solution.
