Kuka says it has generated record levels of business across its units, with almost €900 million worth of orders placed in the second quarter of 2016. The figure represents a 28 per cent increase on the previous year’s profits.
In it robotics division, earnings increased to €25.5 million in the past quarter, says the company in a report.
Kuka, a Germany-based company established in 1898, is one of the world’s leading industrial robot manufacturers.
In recent weeks it has been the subject of a takeover bid by Chinese company Midea, which makes electrical appliances.
Midea says it currently has more than 80 per cent of Kuka’s shares, according to Bloomberg.com, which would seem to mean that Midea now owns Kuka.
New research from AXA suggests small firms in the UK are sceptical about the prospects of next-gen tech – from 3D printing, and smart homes, to robotics and driverless cars – reaching their workplaces.
While more than 40 per cent of small businesses don’t yet have a website, the study found that most of them do plan to move online in the next twelve months. If these plans are fulfilled, only 7 per cent of UK businesses will remain offline by this time next year. Few are ready to plunge deeper into the digital revolution, however.
Just one in five plan to migrate to the Cloud in the coming years, and only six per cent of business owners say they expect to adopt smart technologies. Driverless cars, which are set to hit UK roads as early as 2020, have an equally low resonance, as just 8 per cent of business owners expect they will drive one.

Sensorik 4.0: Cloud-based sensor for the internet of things
Sensors are valuable sources of information and can also be used outside of conventional machine and plant engineering to optimize processes and conserve resources.
The Internet of Things opens up new possibilities for networking even sensors spread over long distances. Sensor signals can be provided at exactly the right time in the place where the information contained in the signals can be used profitably.
Automated collation system streamlines high volume workflow and increases prescription throughput
Innovation, makers of PharmAssist pharmacy automation solutions, has launched RxCollect, a robotic prescription collation technology that automates the collection of patient-specific group and multi-vial orders in central fill and mail order pharmacies employing single piece flow processing.
Tom Boyer, COO, Innovation, says: “When it comes to increasing efficiency and reducing waste in high-volume prescription environments, lean manufacturing’s single piece flow typically wins out over filling prescriptions in batch mode.
Yaskawa Motoman has introduced the RX Unit Pick Workcell, which it says is a fully automated robotic pharmacy order fulfillment system capable of handling thousands of different kinds of pre-packaged medicine with 100 per cent verification for mail order delivery direct to customers or to central fill locations.
Developed jointly by the Motoman Robotics Division of Yaskawa America, R/X Automation Solutions (RXAS) and Universal Robotics, the RX Unit Pick Workcell recognizes each item, verifies the unique National Drug Code (NDC) and prepares it for automatic patient labeling.
Company says the Breeze 10 unmanned boat is an electric craft for dam lake bed sediment surveying
Yamaha has developed the Breeze 10 autonomous unmanned compact electric survey craft.
The company designed the new product to support sounding work such as measuring the sediment levels of dams, and will commence business rentals principally aimed at commercial surveyors in August 2016.
Breeze 10 is an electric FRP craft approximately three meters in length, developed to enable easy mounting of measurement equipment such as narrow multibeam sonar, which is increasingly popular in measurement work, including domestic dam silt level measurement.
