KUKA Systems Group: Industrial Automation Pioneer Automates Car Body Production With Intelligent System
KUKA Systems Group produces industrial robots that automate manufacturing operations in multiple industries around the world. To handle continuous production for Chrysler Group's Jeep Wrangler, KUKA Systems Group needed an automated manufacturing solution that would connect assembly-line robots with a controller, multiple devices, applications, and back end systems. The company implemented an intelligent system anchored by Windows Embedded and Microsoft SQL Server that controls 246 robots and produces more than 700 car bodies each day. The new solution has added flexibility to the manufacturing process, provided continuous uptime, and increased visibility.
