We design and develop cutting edge robotic hardware and software.
Franka Emika is creating “robotics technology for everyone”, with a goal to overcome one of the biggest challenges of modern society, relieving an entire generation of tedious, potentially dangerous, vastly time-consuming, and monotonous labor. Franka Emika’s approach is different to all other industrial robotic companies, as it places human and its needs in the center of development.
The company’s first industrial robotic arm „Panda“ has been designed to be accessible for everybody; it is a capable power tool, affordable also for small businesses, operable within minutes and made for human interaction. The robot incorporates a novel high-resolution, sense of touch to accomplish most delicate tasks accurately and efficiently. From its series production plant in Bavaria, Germany, Panda is already being shipped worldwide to all types of users. Panda is currently the fastest selling robot system in the world. For Panda, designed, developed and made in Germany, Franka Emika received the Deutsche Zukunftspreis by Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in November 2017.
