Chinese company HIT Robot Group (HRG) has signed an agreement with Kuka Robotics (Shanghai) to work on a range of projects on the applications of industrial robots in intelligent manufacturing and Industry 4.0.
By exploiting the advantages of both sides, the two companies say they will try to extend the applications of industrial robotics in different fields.
Kuka is one of the world’s largest robot manufacturing companies. HRG has the support and resources from the Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), China’s top robotics institution.
Wang Yang, VP of HRG, says: “Kuka robots are famed for precision and control technologies; while the advantage of HRG is in secondary platform development, especially in the application of advanced parameters.
“We are devoted to further developing the open type platform which is based on the youBot for the application of robotic products, and we are doing a great job here. This cooperation between the two giants will boost the expansion of the robot market for HRG.” [Read more…] about Kuka signs deal with HIT Robots Group in China
