KUKA Robotics to Highlight Innovative Packaging Solutions at PACK EXPO

KUKA Robotics will exhibit among 1,750 world-class industry suppliers at PackExpo Las Vegas in booth 5133. Pack Expo is North America’s largest packaging and processing show.

KUKA Robotics will host in-booth solutions showcasing the family of small robots the KR AGILUS. The KR AGILUS Family offers high speed accuracy, short cycle times, 5 or 6 axes, 6 or 10 kg payloads in 3 different arm reach lengths with mounting positions of floor, wall or ceiling. All of the KR AGILUS family is operated using the KR C4 controller the universal control technology from KUKA. In a food handling demonstration the KR AGILUS KR6 R700 sixx will simulate bakery tray filling. The KR6 R700 sixx has a 6kg payload with a 700mm reach and will be utilizing all six axes. Demonstrating high speed flexible case packing will be a KR6 R900 sixx having a 6kg payload with a 900mm reach, also utilizing all 6 axes. All happening as the powerfully quick KR 180 PA palletizing robot will be lifting the KUKA brand to new heights! See video of KR AGILUS here.

In a robotic solution created and provided by Official KUKA Robotics System Partner FleetwoodGoldcoWyard will showcase a Robotic Rainbow Pallet System. The KR 470 PA will select layers from two donor pallets of different product to create a mixed pallet using mxAutomation. mxAutomation is a software package from KUKA Robotics that allows full control of KUKA robot motion via an external PLC that communicates with the KRC4 robot controller.
