Why we became a member of MindSphere World Belgium:
Robots are becoming more and more a commodity, everybody can experience this nowadays. Thus to excellent it is important to focus on two things: maximum performance and a reduction of the TCO, the Total Cost of Ownership. Maximum performance is highly affected by the design and quality of the machine but for sure longer uptimes and smart maintenance are a benefit to efficient production. Smart maintenance does not only mean less but well planned and efficient maintenance. Especially IoT and Connectivity with its monitoring, analyzing and predicting capacity is a means to increase the efficiency and availability of the customer’s assets and this where MindSphere excels. So for KUKA its’s only logical to join with MindSphere.
Without doubt, cobots will play a key role in Industrie 4.0 – not only directly as part of modern production, but as data gatherers that can communicate all relevant information to IT systems in real time if required
