Kiefel's tremendous innovation and strong partnership in recent years is being rewarded with membership in the ABB Authorized Value Provider Program.
ABB robot technology is utilized in our Fiber Thermoforming systems: the NATUREFORMER KFT 90. The ABB robots are used for pick & place applications and as heavy-duty robots for the KFT 90 tools.
Thanks to the integration of ABB robots, Kiefel customers enjoy full flexibility in the manufacturing of plastic and fiber products.

The perfect interface between the robots and Kiefel control technology allows customers to benefit from a proven and reliable system. The safety function offers maximum safety for the operator.
