eyevis Displays Play Integral Part in KUKA Training Sessions
One of the world’s leading suppliers of robotics and plant and systems engineering has selected eyevis products. KUKA Aktiengesellschaft, based in Augsburg, has installed nine 16 touch-controlled video walls featuring 2×2 EYE-LCD-5500-XSN-LD displays, as well as 6x EYE-LCD-8500-QHD-Touch(AG)-32IR.
Customer service programs play an essential role at KUKA. In more than 30 KUKA Colleges the company provides seminar students throughout the world with hands-on training, in which they can learn the necessary specialist knowledge and skills at first hand. For its major college locations in Germany, KUKA invested in an upgrade of the audio-visual technology to improve presentations during the courses.
At the training facilities at the company’s headquarters near Augsburg nine interactive video walls with a configuration of 2×2 55-inch video wall LCD screens were installed together with four 85-inch Ultra-HD LCD touch monitors. Similar systems in smaller quantities went to further KUKA colleges in Braunschweig, Siegen and Gersthofen.
The unique, bespoke installations feature an especially designed touch overlay system which allows front service accessibility and height adjustability of the entire video wall. The whole construction was customized to meet the customer’s individual needs. All video walls and individual screens allow the display of interactive content with Quad-Full-HD resolution and touch control with up to 32 simultaneous touch points.
The video wall displays were attached to front-service wall-mounts to enable the committed fast exchange of a display in a maximum of 30 minutes if there is a defect. The EYE-LCD-CAS System was also included to ensure a quick calibration of the screens. With this semi-automated system the screens within a video wall can easily be matched to provide a uniform appearance of colours and brightness.
The video walls are used to display CAD data and presentations during training sessions which can easily be controlled through touch gestures with 32 simultaneous touch points, so several students can work simultaneously.
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of intelligent automation solutions, KUKA offers its customers everything they need from a single source: from the core component – the robot – to cells and fully automated systems. KUKA operates internationally for customers from the automotive industry and general industry.
State-of-the-Art LCD Technology for Video Walls and HiRes Displays
The new EYE-LCD-5500-XSN-LD represents the cutting-edge of LCD technology for video wall applications. Thanks to the extremely slim bezel of the device it is possible to create video wall setups with an almost invisible mechanical gap of only 3.5mm between the displays in a combined video wall configuration. Perfect display characteristics paired with several new features for the electronics make the new EYE-LCD-5500-XSN-LD a first choice for modern video walls in professional applications. The EYE-LCD-8500-QHD-LD is an 85-inch Ultra-HD/4K LCD monitor for professional applications. Besides its pin-sharp resolution of 3840×2160 pixels, the optional IR touch system and anti-glare surface, with a brightness of 500nits it provides sufficient light output for use in training rooms.
eyevis Delivers First-Class Quality and High System Availability
Daniel Nauwerck of KUKA said: “We chose eyevis because of the quality of their products and their ability to complete special constructions. We also wanted to take advantage of their first-class quality and high system availability.”
Michael Reichart Sales Manager at eyevis said: “KUKA has a global reputation for precision and quality. We were able to completely customize the installation to meet the customer’s requirements and it is a great endorsement of eyevis technology that they have chosen our display screens for their training centre.”
