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.

🎄🎁 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!

Panda is now able to see – literally! With our new partner Pick it 3D, which created a unique 3D robot vision solution, it is now possible! Seeing where objects are positioned in its surroundings not only enriches Franka Emika robot's possibilities but also makes it even easier to use it in a flexible working environment. We welcome Pick it 3D to Franka Emika's partner family and hosted CTO Bert Willaert today, who demonstrated the Pickit X Franka Emika solution during the Manufacturing Academy Tour that was part of the #MILEU19 here at the HQ.
