KUKA Robotics — The Cornerstone of Automation Integration — Opens First West Coast Location in Fremont
Dec 12, 2017
KUKA Robotics, a German manufacturer of industrial robots and solutions for factory automation, has stood for transformational ideas and innovation for over 100 years. Today, KUKA is one of the world’s leading suppliers of robot technology and plant and systems engineering.
As a global automation powerhouse with a focus on solutions for industrial manufacturing processes, KUKA chose Fremont as its first West Coast location. That’s because Fremont serves as the capital for advanced manufacturing in Silicon Valley. Located on the “Hardware Side of the Bay,” Fremont is also leading the way in the industrial revolution powered by advancements in smart manufacturing, robotics, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Maintaining a Silicon Valley presence allows KUKA to provide global robotic solutions to local high tech industries, including the automotive customer base.
“The diversity of industry in this area is really second to none. You have all of the big players in the electronics business. The innovation here drives the innovation in the world.” - Jerry Osborn, president, KUKA.
KUKA recently hosted an open house in Fremont which featured live robotics automation demonstrations, tours of the new Electronic TechCenter and presentations on the latest technology, such as human-robot collaboration.
Here’s an inside peek at KUKA’s Fremont opening celebration.
