ABB Ability™ Connected Services helps keep KOKI in high gear

Mar 05, 2020 — As a global leader in gear systems whose customers demand just-in-time delivery, KOKI depends on reliability and uptime from its fleet of 60 robots. The German company, founded in 2003, makes precision gear shifters and boxes for some of the world’s leading automakers.

Automated calibration process at Perschmann Calibration GmbH with the sensitive KUKA robot

Mar 05, 2020 — In measuring technology, maximum precision is the only thing that counts. This provides ideal conditions for the use of robots. For efficient use, however, they must be able to grip various large objects without damaging them. At measuring technology specialist Perschmann Calibration GmbH, the sensitive KUKA LBR iiwa robot performs the loading of a coordinate measuring machine and thus automates the calibration process.
