KUKA Robotics is to display its innovative LWR4+, a compact robot with a 7 kg payload capacity and 7 axes weighing 16 kg, in the Automate 2011, which is the solution- based show of automation technologies in North America.
This technology can perform difficult assembly tasks that need high precision along with a powerful but sensitive touch. This lightweight robot closely resembles the human arm’s motion sequences. It could be guided to different positions in the work arena through the force controlled surface that follows the operator who operates it manually. An economic and small footprint pallet solution, which was designed and furnished by the Official KUKA Robotics System Partner, Automated Motion would also be showcased in Automate 2011.
A demonstration cell, KR 100 PA would be used in the footprint P3 Palletizing cube, which is an arm based palletizing application that is pre-assembled and suitable for carton, bag, case and pail palletizing. This exhibition would show the KUKA KR 100 PA robot, which has pick speeds of up to 20 picks per minute and 100 kg payloads. It could also be customized with several arm tooling options along with a slip sheet placement sheet, which is optional, extended height pallet loads and automatic pallet discharge/ dispensing. It is shipped almost completely and needs just over 2 hours for setting up. Its small footprint and base frame permits the P3 to be installed rapidly and easily anywhere in the manufacturing facility.
KUKA Robotics would be displaying in Booth #360 and outside the booth, the KR 150, a collaborative and hand guided robot would be showing KUKA SafeHandling. It would show KUKA.SafeOperation with space limiting, safety rated soft axis, motioned stop and speed monitoring in Booth #1160 of the RIA Robot Standards. The SAS booth #919 would showcase KUKA KR 100-2PA robot.
The KUKA Robotics System Partner network includes highly experienced application specialists, system providers, expert robot integrators, and OEM machine builders and this network is created mainly for the benefit of the users.
