KUKA Robotics In-booth Demonstration at IMTS 2016 will include:
NEW! 3D Metal Printing Additive Manufacturing Demonstration by Midwest Engineering
Official KUKA Robotics System Partner Midwest Engineered Systems has partnered with several international industry leaders to develop a complete and scalable additive metal manufacturing solution. Additive manufacturing commonly referred to as Industrial “3D Metal Printing” is a digital process, which uses 3D design data to build components in layers by depositing material. This demonstration by an Official KUKA Robotics System Partner will showcase the strategy for manufacturing of a workpiece, preparation of the slicing program, translation into the robot path program, process development for the laser welding, laser delivery system, hot wire feed of material, and dynamic deposition measuring to compensate for adverse conditions.
NEW! The FARO® Cobalt Array Imager - unlimited configurable Robotic Inspection
Unique on-board processing enables unlimited multi-imager array configurations by expanding the scan area to deliver automated rapid inspection of all features and surfaces, dramatically improving cycle time. The actionable data is displayed as a simple go/no-go result or an easy-to-read dimensional deviation color map. This new technology from FARO showcases easy integration into production environments, automated deployment options when attaching Cobalt Imagers to a robot, and overall improvement with throughput and productivity of 3D measurement workflows. The FARO Cobalt Array Imager brings unparalleled performance at an affordable price for quality inspection and factory automation applications.
NEW! Collaborative Robots
KUKA will feature multiple collaborative robots showing a range of applications demonstrating how collaborative robots can be used in Human Robot Collaborative applications industry. KUKA will also feature how it is possible to use traditional industrial robots in collaborative applications by incorporating auxiliary safety technology.
NEW! EMCO Educational Cell
KUKA Robotics introduces the EMCO Concept TURN 260 as part of KUKA Robotics’ education area. The Concept TURN 260 brings CNC training with industrial performance. This high performance semi-industrial CNC lathe is part of EMCO Industrial Training where students are able to program advanced to complex CNC programs using a 3-axis lathe with a life-tooling turret at industrial standards and a 3-5 axis milling machine with industrial performance rates and complexity.
NEW! Siemens Run My Robot
Demonstration featuring a KR 6 R700 showcasing Siemens Run MyRobot Machining provides a standardized solution for the machining robot based on the combination of CNC and robotics know-how. By utilizing the KUKA robot, Siemens Run MyRobot offers a cost-effective and greater productivity solution for large machining areas. High accuracy by machining is also achieved with the KR 6 R700 because the precision is supplemented by the support of the robot-specific know-how making the robot a CNC robot with the Siemens Run MyRobot.
NEW! North American Introduction KUKA Connect software
KUKA Connect is an all-new software platform that connects KUKA robots to the cloud. Using KUKA Connect, customers can easily access and analyze their robots’ data on any device, anywhere at any time. Built on open global standards, KUKA Connect securely leverages cloud computing technologies and big data analytics to provide customers maximum visibility into their connected KUKA robots.

NEW! KUKA KORE Official Robotic Education
KUKA Robotics introduces the new KORE Official Robotic Education Cart
designed to support the education market’s need to make robotics a KORE
part of their STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education
programs. With the KUKA KORE package students are given the opportunity
to learn and perform basic robot programming and operation skills on
robotic hardware. Students will also have the opportunity to mine for
clues in the KUKA booth and take the KUKA Kraze mobile quiz to enter for
a chance to win a STEM party for their class visiting IMTS! KUKA KORE
can also be found in the Smartforce Student Summit in booth NC-631 with
a maze challenge for students understand the basic behind-the-scenes
programming and the opportunity to win KUKA-branded giveaways.
