Heavy lifting with KUKA heavy duty robots
The need to lift heavy objects is one of the reasons that robots have become more attractive than human workers in some industrial areas over the years. Robots can lift more than humans in almost every case – especially when it comes to robots like the KUKA heavy duty robot line. KUKA heavy duty robots can lift anywhere from 300kg up to 1300kg – that’s almost 3000 pounds! Even with the assistance of machinery, that kind of load would be hard for one human worker to handle.
KUKA heavy duty robots can be found in several different industries today, including the glass, foundry, automotive and building materials industries. These industries typically use heavy parts that need to be moved efficiently and quickly – that is what makes heavy duty robotics from KUKA so invaluable.
A heavy duty robot like the TITAN series can lift anywhere from 1000-1300kg at one time, depending on the model, and the series has variations that can work in adverse conditions, like the heat of a foundry. Using these heavy duty robot systems also increases safety in many industrial settings. Trying to lift heavy items can cause injury to workers, and even death in the case of work pieces that fall during accidents. But, by investing in a KUKA heavy duty robotic system, workers can be taken out of the danger zone, away from heavy work pieces, and put behind the robots as operators.
So, you’re in the market for a high powered, heavy duty KUKA robot with amazing accuracy to improve the productivity of your line? You should call RobotWorx as they are a certified integrator for KUKA Robotics.
