KUKA’s robotic arms aren’t just for industrial purposes, they can also put on an interesting puppet show at Augsburg City Hall in Germany. This celebration of the company’s 125th anniversary isn’t just a one time show, as guests can see “Unteren Flez” directly on the first floor of the building.
Visitors can get up close and see how robotic arms Mario and Nette control the two puppets: KUrt KAsperle and the dragon Famulus, the the latter of which was named after the first KUKA robot. Watch these two experience adventures together between the city hall, the train station and KUKA headquarters in a masterfully crafted scene of Augsburg. Best of all, there is no cost to see this show during the opening hours of Augsburg City Hall.

For 125 years, KUKA has been firmly rooted in its home base of Augsburg – and has developed from a manufacturer of acetylene gas or garbage trucks into a globally active automation group. Exactly 50 years ago, KUKA made history as a robotics pioneer with the world’s first industrial robot with six electromagnetically driven axes, said Ulrike Götz, KUKA Spokesperson Technology.
