KUKA Commemorates Four Decades of Robotics

A robot with six electromechanically driven axes – in 1973 that was a revolution in industrial production!

40 years ago, KUKA introduced the FAMULUS, the first industrial robot of its own manufacture, thereby ushering in an entirely new era of robotics.

KUKA had previously gained relevant experience through the use of robots from other manufacturers, which were hydraulically operated, however. When the demands for powerful and reliable robots above all from the automotive industry grew ever more pressing, the company decided to develop its own robot.

The idea has paid dividends: today, 40 years after the FAMULUS, KUKA is one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial robots.
