Innovation & Tech Corner 


Find out more about the participation of KUKA, SERVICE NEXT, WATTPARK - ALL IN FACTORY, GATES and WOLF 
in the Innovation & Tech corner of the Start-up Village at EQUIP AUTO Lyon.


Come and discover 2 KUKA robots: an articulated arm for assembling EVs in the factories of the future, the KR QUANTEC automobile, and a collaborative robot for the workshops and garages of the future, the LBR iisy 11kg. 

KR QUANTEC automotive 
The robot for a responsible automotive industry

The KR QUANTEC automotive is a robot typically used in automated automotive production lines. This recent model, controlled by the KR C5 control panel, consumes less electricity than its predecessors, enabling users to control their energy consumption and thus the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) of their production tool. This initiative is part of KUKA's sustainable robotics approach.

LBR iisy 11kg 
The industrial Cobot for automation and collaboration.  

It stands out for its speed, being the fastest on the market. LBR iisy's fluid, touch-sensitive manual guidance makes it easy to use and intuitive to program. Ideal for overcoming labour shortages and carrying out tedious tasks. This makes automation accessible to small and medium-sized businesses! You don't need to be a large group with extensive human and financial resources. The LBR iisy is a collaborative industrial robot that's easy to set up and get production up and running quickly.


SERVICE NEXT is set to unveil a major innovation: virtual reality headsets designed specifically to revolutionise technician training in the garages of the future. 

This technological breakthrough promises to radically transform the way automotive professionals acquire and perfect their skills.
Thanks to these cutting-edge virtual reality headsets, technicians will have access to an immersive and interactive learning environment. They will be able to practise and learn in realistic simulations, reproducing all the situations encountered in modern garages. This includes complex vehicle repair, diagnosis and maintenance scenarios.
