KUKA  is seeking to become involved in order to offer greater technical support to the AMRC’s future automation projects after being chosen to supply a number of robots for various research programs.

KUKA robots are currently being used at the center for a project headed by Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems to explore automated assembly applications in the aerospace industry.

KUKA  also provided a KR 16 model for a three-year study, which investigated the production of large aircraft components using the shaped metal deposition (SMD) process. It was part of an automated production cell, which was designed to build up components from welded wire and show how the SMD method could be transformed from an experimental concept to a commercially viable manufacturing technology.
