I AM FRANKA

R:evolution

“I am the first robot that builds itself. I assemble my body, I connect the pieces, I lift up and test my functionalities. Voilà, I’m ready to go!

How is this possible? My sense of touch, my truly smart design and my unique set of skills all make it possible for a robot to actually build itself.”

Franka is unique

I AM agile and sensitive like a human arm

“I am architected, designed and developed by FRANKA EMIKA GmbH. I am the first-generation collaborative lightweight robot system that is from the first moment of its creation designed to assist the human.”

VISUALLY INTUITIVE PROGRAMMING

set up and run in no time

The key objective of FRANKA EMIKA is that even without any programming skills you can program the robot to perform complex tasks within a couple of minutes. FRANKA EMIKA’s visually intuitive programming system, DESK, provides robot APPs. DESK will guide you step-by-step, and you can freely combine those APPs.

tasks

APPS

“Out of the box, I can already accomplish tasks like pressing buttons, plugging in cables or placing objects. Just drag and drop the APPs you want, set the requirements you need with my help, and start working. Voilà, your task is complete!”

APPs are programs for FRANKA EMIKA that are ready to be deployed immediately for entire application processes. They are compositions of control structures, interaction patterns, parameters, data providers and teaching capabilities. By arranging and setting the required APPs, you can create even the most complex tasks without needing any in-depth programming knowledge.

Dialog based setup

“Not every beginning is hard. I will ask you everything I need to know and walk you through the setup process.”

For setting up the required APPs you are guided through interactive step-by-step dialogs. This is an intuitive and efficient way to set up your tasks.
