KUKA Robotics Demonstrates Two Innovative Solutions in Palletizing and Arc Welding

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 6, 2009— KUKA Robotics booth #2021 will display the KR 60-3 with tooling designed and supplied by FLEXiCELL. The KR60-3 will demonstrate a simple, user friendly palletizing solution requiring no external PLC for cell control. The KR 60-3 with its payload of 60kg, long reach and compact, light weight design allow this 6 axis robot to perform accurate and efficient operations in picking and packaging applications where the transfer of parts between conveyors and stations is speed critical.

Also demonstrated will be the KR5 ARC in an innovative Arc Welding solution, in cooperation with tooling designed by UST Technologies. The KR5 ARC, sets a benchmark in welding robots. The compact design, low overall weight, and a reach of 1411mm allows the KR 5 ARC to excel even in the closest welding cell concepts. Welding with the KR5 ARC will be achieved by seamless integration with a Fronius welding power supply.
