Join us in booth N-5347 and experience a simulated freezer environment where attendees can see the Arctic Series of Robots up close and personal. No suits, bags or robot protection needed for the KR QUANTEC PA arctic series to endure temperatures as low as -30°C. The KR QUANTEC PA arctic Series is an ideal fit for the Refrigerated, Frozen Food and Beverage markets with availability in 3 payloads of 120kg, 180kg, and 240kg they are perfect for all kinds of frigid lifting!
KUKA will also demonstrate high speed flexible case packing with a KR 6 R900 sixx having a 6kg payload with a 900mm reach, also utilizing all 6 axes. See video of KR AGILUS here.
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 KUKA 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.
