Official KUKA Robotics System Partner PDSI will showcase their plasma cutting cell for structural steel and tubing – The Predator. This robotic development features a KUKA KR 16 L8 arc HW robot with KR C4 to provide the ultimate in cutting reach and precision for this cell. The Predator from PDSI offers an all-in-one steel processing system to cut steel, time and cost. Attendees will have the opportunity to see the cell at work with I-beam tracing utilizing the KR 16 L8 arc HW when visiting the booth.

In addition to The Predator, KUKA will feature Official System Partner ARC Specialties’ robotic plasma cutting cell also operating a KR 16 L8 arc HW robot. The KR 16 L8 arc HW offers a hollow wrist, high repeatability, and a reach of 2,000mm. The hollow wrist opening of the robot allows for optimal protection of the arc welding dress package by being routed in the protective interior of the robotic arm. This innovative solution from ARC Specialties 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 programming of the robot.

KUKA Robotics will have the new KR AGILUS HM – the JoeBot, attendees’ personal barista – on display. The KR AGILUS HM (Hygienic Machine) meets industry requirements for both food and pharmaceuticals. This small robot emphasizes the importance of a hygienic design with a higher protection rating IP 67. The KR AGILUS HM has corrosion-resistant surfaces to prevent build-up of sensitive materials while even being used in temperature ranges between 0oC to 40oC. Offering a payload range of 6kg to 10kg with a reach of 700mm to 1,100mm, the KR AGILUS HM adds new potential to the AGILUS family.

Another demonstration attendees will find in KUKA’s booth is from Official System Partner Genesis Systems Group, LLC. This Genesis cell will have on display 4 KR AGILUS and a KR 120 R3900 ULTRA K. The Genesis RoboPogo system offers flexibility, scalability to fit customer applications, and multi-dimensional positioning. The KR AGILUS is KUKA Robotics new family of small robots. Availability is offered in two payloads of 6kg and 10kg with a reach of 700, 900, and 1,100mm. The KR QUANTEC ultra family offers extreme power, stiffness, and precision with 25% shorter cycle times.

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.
