Siemens’ Drive Technologies Division and Kuka Roboter have struck a partnership to integrate Siemens machining products into Kuka robots

The two automation giants will collaborate on machining and robotic technologies in the deal announced at the EMO machining and automation trade show in Germany.

“With this joint approach, the two companies are strengthening the fundamental idea of integrated production and can, for example, develop new markets by close intermeshing of machine tool tasks and loading tasks,” said Kuka Roboter chief executive Manfred Gundel.

With the shared development, new products will be coordinated optimally over their entire life cycle, from design, to production simulation, to engineering and the production shop level. Moreover, the two companies have agreed on including future aspects of robot automation, specifically developing Industry 4.0 project into their joint activities.

“The CNC control from Siemens and the robot controls from Kuka are ideal for integrating robot and CNC technology. With this cooperation, we are deepening our many years of cooperation and advancing intelligent automation solutions as outlined by the Industry 4.0 project for the benefit of both partners and to expand business,” said Siemens Business Unit Motion Control Systems chief executive Robert Neuhauser.
