ProGlove´s Solution for the Manufacturing Industry
For us, the factory of the future is a smart factory – in other words, the human remains the focal point of operations and is supported by the robot. The cooperation between ProGlove and KUKA is an important step for us toward this factory of the future.

Working with conventional hand-held scanners caused a lot time-consuming disruptions at KUKA– especially when loading carriers with the manipulator. The time needed to catch a grip on a scanner alone, caused undesirable delays at shipping and receiving centers.
When KUKA introduced ProGlove to enable hands-free scanning, they experienced a direct impact towards optimizing tighter workflows. ProGlove erased the handling time for their scanners and integrated documentation as an intuitive part of their workflows, so that there were less and less delays caused by time to scan.
