November 11-13th KUKA Robotics will show Plasma Cutting, and Welding, at FABTECH 2014 booth C-2956
SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. & ATLANTA — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 10, 2014 — Visit KUKA Robotics in booth C-2956 during FABTECH North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event held at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA, to see how KUKA Robots can “Cut it & Weld it”, showing how automation can bring efficiency to the metal forming process.
Specially adapted for arc welding tasks and projects, KUKA's ARC robots offer optimized solutions at attractive prices. With a wide range of payload capacity and a reach of up to 3.1m, these rugged robots can access even hard-to-reach weld seams with welding equipment. (Photo: Business Wire)
KUKA Robotics In-booth Demonstrations at FABTECH 2014 will include:
NEW! The Integrated Robotic Plasma Cutting
In a technology partnership with Official KUKA Robotics System Partner Arc Specialties and ESAB NA showcasing a KR 16 L8 HW. The KR 16 L8 HW will be doing live plasma cutting, showcasing the single axis head stock / tail stock design permits rotational cutting of complex parts, with pre-programmed cutting geometry with desired part dimensions requires no teaching of the robot.
NEW! Arc Welding Demonstration
In a simulated fixtureless welding demo a KR 210 R3100 F will simulate arc welding on motorcycle frame using 2 KR 5 R1400 utilizing RoboTeam cooperating motion.
NEW! KUKA KORE Official Robotic Education Portable Education Cart
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 education programs.
