  • KUKA Robotics UK Ltd

    KUKA Robotics UK Ltd

    KUKA is setting the pace of production in the manufacturing world, that is required for Industry 4.0; highly efficient, flexible systems, specifically adapted to the needs of todays’ factory. The returns that manufacturers are seeking, differ across the industrial landscape, as business owners strive to manage several challenges that have been brought about by economic and universal impacts, in addition to domestic complications, such as the widening skills gap and depleting skilled labour pools.
    Manufacturers now are having to evaluate the benefits attributed to robotics sooner, as a tactical survival move, rather than a strategic incentive, to ensure operational longevity. These adjustments are necessary to satisfy demand across the supply chain. First and foremost, manufacturers must identify where automated solutions can best add value; process-focused improvements aimed at improving efficiency in areas that might once have been heavily reliant upon manual handling, for example.
    Our wealth of experience in the provision of automated manufacturing solutions, no matter how varied your work processes, will help to determine precisely where to optimize production along your entire value chain. We will work with you to design a concept that supports increased operational efficiency, improved quality output, waste reduction and added value, all to help your business achieve a competitive advantage.
    Sometimes the simplest processes, when automated, can deliver the biggest returns. Speak to KUKA today, and help us to identify where your added value exists.
