Innovative Solutions for Palletizing and Packaging at PACK EXPO 2016
KUKA Robotics is giving attendees the opportunity to see and operate a hands-on demonstration with the LBR iiwa. Those attending and visiting booth N-5330, will have the chance to teach the robot points on a work area and then watch the LBR iiwa pick & place headphones. The lightweight LBR iiwa (Intelligent Industrial Work Assistant) robot is the first series-produced sensitive robot suitable for human-robot collaborations. This robot has integrated, sensitive torque sensors in all 7 axes giving the robot contact detection and programmable compliance to avoid collisions and eliminating the need for expensive safety fencing. The LBR iiwa from KUKA is available in two payloads: 7 kg and 14 kg with coordinating reaches of 800 mm
and 820 mm.
KUKA will feature how it is possible to use traditional industrial robots in collaborative applications by incorporating auxiliary safety technology. Those visiting the KUKA booth will get to see and interact with a KR 10 R1100 AGILUS robot in a fence-less application. With the use of area scanners, this demonstration represents a work cell environment that allows for fence-less solutions offering speed and throughput for automation cells but still safe for the human to enter the area when needed. The speed and accuracy of the KR AGILUS family make the performance unique in its payload category and offers impressive results combined with minimized cycle times. This small robot family has a payload availability of 6 kg and 10 kg all with a reach of 700, 900, and 1,100 mm and is available in over 34 different variations including waterproof and cleanroom.
