KUKA announces membership to Sheffield University’s AMRC

KUKA Robotics UK is to play a wider role in the development of new manufacturing technologies after joining one of Britain’s top research organisations.

The Midlands-based industrial robot supplier has become a member of Sheffield University’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) so it can offer greater technical support to future automation projects.

Membership of the organisation means KUKA will take part in a broad range of AMRC projects and receive privileged access to the centre’s resources and capabilities.

KUKA says it is keen to work more closely with the Rotherham establishment after being chosen to supply a number of robots for a variety of AMRC research programmes.
