Easy Automation: KUKA and the IMTS Robot Show

Sept. 3, 2014
To prove its 'Automation Becomes Easy' thesis at IMTS this year, KUKA Robotics will be offering real-life demonstrations of the ease its machines offer. Which means robots on hand will be making a show of what they do best: actual industrial work.

Robots are always one of the biggest draws at IMTS, and this year should be no different.

Booths at the September show will be stuffed full of automation geeks watching Motoman robots deal cards and perform their oddly human-like tricks, as they did in 2012. And Fanuc's booth, with its great yellow robotic arms tossing auto parts overhead and bench-pressing buses will offer a nearly inescapable draw.

But this year, KUKA Robotics is taking it a step further.

To prove its "Automation Becomes Easy" thesis at IMTS this year, KUKA will be offering real-life demonstrations of the ease its machines offer. Which means, rather than showing off with tricks and feats of strength, robots on hand will be doing exactly what they were designed to do – arc welding, machining, tending lathes, flexing axes and generally simulating the full job shop experience.

For the real industrial geeks in the crowd, that will make for an awfully exciting show.
