RoboCIM 5250 Software (5251)

RoboCIM 5250 software simulates and controls the operation of the Servo Robot System and external devices, such as a gravity feeder and a linear slide. The software is also used to create programs. Sophisticated mathematical models accurately simulate the mechanical and electrical characteristics of the equipment.

Modular Production System (MPS)

The MPS sets the right challenges and provides appropriate learning environments for training with maximum transfer to industrial practice. A production line in a factory can be made up of individual production cells. Each cell has a specific function in the process (distribution, testing, processing, etc.). Students can learn on a broad range of individual applications and processes, or by effectively combining individual stations students can assemble their own production system.


The iFactory is the convertible training factory everyone dreams of, not just production planners. The iFactory has a systematic modular construction, enabling you to try out new ideas immediately realistically. The adaptability of the iFactory makes modification simple and enables you to create completely new production layouts in just a few moments. Simple and clear interfaces make for intuitive handling and operation – the key to creative production planning and engineering. All production cells are constructed professionally and to industrial standards, with no compromises. Training in the factory reflects industrial reality, whether at a manual workstation, in the warehouse or at a fully automatic robot work cell.

ProLog Factory

The new training platform for logistics, communication technology, mechatronics, robotics and industrial engineering.
The processes and material flow in the ProLog learning factory are a representation of a real production system with logistics and shipping.
It includes intermediate buffers and magazines for the raw materials and an automatic store for the individual products. The production line produces the parts with low stock levels according to the KANBAN principle.

Robotino XT

Robotino XT is a mobile robot application that comprises both a learning system and a research object for future industrial applications. It is based on the Robotino mobile learning robot developed by Festo Didactic. This system, which has already been established at universities and vocational schools, is being extended with the addition of a compact version of the Bionic Handling Assistant. Robotino XT can thus not only manoeuvre in cramped spaces: with twelve degrees of freedom in all, this robot can move flexibly and can extend its adaptive gripper with high precision.


Modern PC technology allows us to create realistic 3D simulations even for the most complex of automation systems. The participants discover the kinetic dynamism of mechatronic systems using virtual reality – without any risk to human or machine. This allows us to take a step into automation technology without any worries, providing a great motivational boost. Today, simulation represents an important tool in production and product development for analysing new solutions, methods and processes in a quick and low-cost manner. Depending on the task in question, simulation systems come into play which differ from each other in terms of the level of detail of the information to be obtained and the way in which they calculate this information.

FESTO Didactic LabVolt Series

Flexible Manufacturing System (Models 5901-30 and 5901-40)

The Flexible Manufacturing System features Allen-Bradley control components exclusively. These systems allow students to familiarize themselves with manufacturing applications commonly encountered in modern facilities.

Advanced Mechatronics System (5903)

The Advanced Mechatronics System (AMS) is a turnkey training system fully aligned with the standards of a globally recognized program – SIEMENS Mechatronic Systems Certification Program (SMSCP) – and uses industrial grade components found in today’s mechatronic applications. It answers the needs of vocational schools and training centers seeking a cost-effective mechatronics teaching solution in order to train skilled operators. The AMS reproduces the main steps of an industrial packaging line. Students learn about pneumatic distribution, filling, quality control, product sorting, storage and retrieval, network communication, and motor control sub-systems.

Robot System (5150)

The Lab-Volt Robot System, Model 5150, provides complete and affordable training in the programming and operation of industrial robots.

RoboCIM 5150 Software (5173)

RoboCIM 5150 Software allows students to control or simulate the motion of the Robot System. The software provides a three-dimensional, virtual environment and an easy-to-use interface allowing students to easily learn the fundamentals of robotics.

Servo Robot System (5250)

Through the curriculum and hands-on experience with the Servo Robot System, students learn to create automated work cells ideal for Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) and Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM).


Kore Kart

The KUKA Robotics KORE program offers high schools, technical centers, community colleges and universities the opportunity to incorporate Certifi cate based robot education on KUKA products into their STEM, Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics programs. With the KUKA KORE package, students will learn basic robot programing and operation skills on exercise hardware that is similar to what is used in the KUKA College. Through the KORE program, students will learn fundamental robot basics on the same robots and control technology that is utilized in a variety of industries.


Make use of the smart components of KUKA.Sim that are supplied in the extensive component library or download the models via the Internet by means of the KUKA.Sim web catalog.
The library offers numerous smart components that are not just geometric but also partly parametric in design and are provided with a function that you can actively deploy in your simulation (e.g. conveyor belts, light barriers, etc.). For example, you can load a safety fence and adapt its height and width according to your needs. This modular principle makes it unnecessary to create new components from scratch, thereby saving you valuable time

R700 Sixx

The KR 6 R700 sixx is one of the newest, fastest and most reliable robots in its class. With six axes, a maximum payload of 6 kg and a reach of 700 mm, it is ideal for providing an introduction to state-of-the-art robotics. On request, the KUKA Education Bundle can also be offered with a different KUKA robot.


The KUKA youBot has become indispensable in the area of research and teaching. It consists of an omnidirectional mobile platform on which a five-axis robot arm with a two-finger gripper is installed. The arm and mobile platform can also be used individually. The KUKA youBot targets research institutes and universities which can easily implement their own controllers and application ideas with the robot.
In order to allow researchers, teachers and students maximum experimental freedom, the KUKA robot is supplied entirely without a proprietary controller. Instead, it is equipped with a powerful PC board and an EtherCat-based interface to the electronic drive system. The KUKA youBot can be controlled using a wide range of open-source software packages as well as other software ( C++ API, ROS, Orocos, LabView and many more). The open interfaces additionally allow the users to equip the KUKA youBot with sensors and to develop complex applications.


The new KUKA KR 5 arc rounds off the range of KUKA robots at the lower end. Its payload of 5 kg makes it outstandingly well-suited to standard arc welding tasks. With its attractive price and compact dimensions, it is the ideal choice for your application too. Whether mounted on the floor or inverted overhead, the KR 5 arc always performs its tasks reliably.
