Kraft Maschinenbau Kuka

Robotics applications

KRAFT has been the official system partner of Kuka since 2012.
This cooperation has led to approx. 60 individual plants so far.

In-house software development

Robots and the corresponding control come from a single source and cooperate smoothly.
KRAFT is responsible for the complete programming of the robots and adjusts their working areas according to the situations.
After the delivery, an optional remote maintenance is provided.

The KUKA robots can be easily connected to the current open BUS-systems.

Robotics stands for flexibility

Robots can be used in a highly flexible way in nearly all functions.  They can be used for new tasks by adjusting the actuators and the software.


  • Equipped with the current KR C4 control
  • Easy planning, operation and maintenance
  • Continuation of proven PC-based control technologies
  • Safety, robot, logic, motion and process control in one control system
  • Real-time communication between the used controls
  • Future-proof technology platform without proprietary hardware 
  • Highest capacity in a minimum of space 
  • Integrable into nearly all field bus systems (e.g. PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherCAT, Ethernet, DeviceNet)
  • Remote diagnosis available
  • Individual accessories
