Franka Emika

Franka Emika 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.

FRANKA EMIKA is based in Munich. We develop and design human-centered industrial robots that can be used by anyone and are unmatched in cost-efficiency. Our vision is to make robots a commodity by putting humans at the center of robot design, to introduce the most intuitive customer experience, and to connect automation with digitalization.

869.300. This is not another corona-number. This is the amount in € with which the Bavarian Research Foundation supports the development of an assistance robot for operations! Despite everything, we were optimistic about the future when we received those news! Such investments are urgently needed in order to face situations like the current one, but also to relieve the health personnel in general. We are honored to be part of such a research project and to make a joint contribution to society together with the Research Group for Minimally Invasive Interdisciplinary Therapeutic Interventions (MITI) of the Klinikum rechts der Isar, the Chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Embedded Systems (TU München), Siemens Healthineers, Kemnath and Evocortex GmbH.

With all the sad news that are surrounding us, let's recap a wonderful memory: 3 weeks ago Jugend forscht, the biggest Student and youth competition in the field of natural sciences and technology, took place.The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence of the TU München transformed into an exhibition space for many small adults presenting their large inspiring research projects. From trash cans that encourage you to throw away the garbage to the possibility to rebuild cartilage with seaweed, there were no limits to their creativity & cleverness! Congratualtions to the winners Til Jordan, Elias Hanser, Nils Cremer, Jeanette Plechinger and Dominik Krepold. We are curious what the future holds for you!

🎄🎁 2020 is just around the corner - it's time for a wrap-up of 2019. But first: THANK YOU to all our partners, colleagues, friends and the entire team for all your support throughout the year!

Franka Emika kicked it off with a new award. iF International Forum Design recognized us for our outstanding design. At the main fair for innovation and technology HANNOVER MESSE, we launched #FrankaWorld - a platform connecting the physical and the digital world! Afterward, German Chancellor Angela Merkel together with Minister-President Söder visited the Munich School of Robotics & Machine Intelligence and explored multiple research applications featuring Franka Emika's robot. In July we received the IKOM Award from the Technical University of Munich and vbw – Die bayerische Wirtschaft. In September we headed over to Shanghai and presented our robot at the large China International Industry Fair, and stopped by Singapour for a stage talk at the DLD Conference. Last but not least. we received the prestigious @EY Entrepreneur Of The Year award in the Young Companies category.
We can't wait for what the future holds!
