KUKA Robotics is forever changing the landscape of the robotics industry with a new innovative and ground-breaking product to be presented at this year’s Pack Expo.

The new invention will perpetually impact the productivity of industrial manufacturing for years to come.

Industry leader and pioneer of supplying the highest quality industrial robotics and material handling vehicles, KUKA Robotics Corporation, is forever changing the robotics industry and landscape of consumer packaged goods manufacturing process with the launch of a new website, http://www.KUKArevolution.com. The site has been created for customers to track developments of a new innovative and advanced product launch, preceding KUKA’s big reveal at the industry's most dynamic show floor to more than 45,000 packaging and processing colleagues.

“The website has been established in correlation to a new product launch so that colleagues and customers have the ability to track the revolutionizing robotic system that has been developed in collaboration with intelligent engineers from Rockwell Automation,” stated James Cooper, Vice President Sales and Marketing, KUKA Robotics Corporation. “The new invention will perpetually impact the productivity of industrial manufacturing for years to come.”

A viral video campaign, hosted on the site further serves as a teaser to receive enticing product developments before the vast reveal. The sequence of videos will visually display product imagery, piece-by-piece. Displayed to the right of the video, is content that will be complementary to video updates, further alluding to the grand exposure to take place at the Pack Expo, scheduled October 31-November 3, 2010, at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois. KUKA Robotics will be held in booth N-4641.

The new high-performance robotic system is not just another arm, but a revolutionary solution that will help reduce costs, design times, change-over, and space. “We have had a tremendous amount of robotic evolutions in this industry but this, this is not an evolutionary tale as many former fabrication inventions, but rather a revolutionary one.”
