The robots of the KR QUANTEC series & KR FORTEC series including controller will be used for joining and handling tasks in body-in-white production.

The cloud-based platform KUKA Connect specially developed by KUKA will also be implemented besides the KUKA robots. This platform affords customers easy access to the data of their robots and allows them to analyze the data. The information can be accessed flexibly on any end devices.

This contract underscores our expertise in automation. At the same time, we are further strengthening our position in the growth market of Asia and profiting from the megatrend towards automation.

— Dr. Till Reuter, CEO of KUKA AG
