Get up close and personal with the complete KR AGILUS family of small robots on display. The KR AGILUS is unique in its payload category; setting new standards with 6 axes, very high speeds, short cycle times, integrated energy supply system –all three models will be shown side by side, the KR6 R700, KR6 R900 and the KR10 R1100.

In a robotic solution created and provided by Official KUKA Robotics System Partner BW Container Systems will showcase a Robotic Full Bottle Pick & Place system. A KR 16 robot equipped with an end of arm vacuum assembly will select filled bottles from the AdaptA MB system and place them into a tray. This technology can be used for case packing, large container bulk palletizing or removal of select containers for inspection.

The system can be designed to handle many types and sizes as well as combinations of products within cases allowing for mixed or “rainbow” packages. The AdaptA MB system creates 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 KR C4 robot controller.

The KUKA Robotics System Partner network is designed to mutually benefit each organization’s users by extending the way customers can acquire tailored solutions with the major competitive and technological advantage of high precision KUKA robots. The KUKA Robotics System Partner Network includes experienced OEM machine builders, system providers, application specialists and expert robot integrators.
