KEBA to Showcase KeMotion Robotic Controller at Pack Expo 2011

KEBA and Staubli Robotics together will be displaying an innovative robot used for motion control at the PACK Expo 2011. The exhibition will be held at Las Vegas. The new controller is an integration of PLC and robotic control, which brings down the cost of a motion control system.

KeMotion Controller

KeMotion is the name of the new PLC cum robotic controller, which delivers high performance and can be integrated with a wide range of robotic arms from Staubli. The controller can be integrated with the Staubli robot arms with the help of uniVAL drives.

Doug Riffle, the director of sales at Keba, pointed out that the simple operation and connectivity of the KeMotion is one of its key benefits. He added that it can easily be connected to the uniVAL drive through Ethernet bus to assume the function of a series of smart drives to the controller. Keba has been focussing its work on robotic control for the past 15 years. The result of these efforts is the KeMotion which is capable of supporting multi-robot platforms that are located in shared work spaces. These multi-robots have synchronised auxillary axes and share 64 axes, driven by a single central controller. The KeMotion also supports vision system tracking, triggering and other sophisticated robotic features. Most of the kinematic models such as the articulated arm, Cartesian, SCARA and parallel/delta are also supported by the controller. The standard set of tools that are used for customizing the kinematic models are also supported by the controller. When working on PLC control, KeMotion runs the CoDeSys IEC programming environment which is independent of the hardware. It supports a series of servo drives and motors, touch screen display panels, HMI visualization software and remote I/Os so that the integration is smooth without any differences arising in the process.
