KUKA Controller for Dispensing Systems

Jul 4, 2013

KUKA’s Motion Control technology was created specifically for dispensing systems. This dispensing system is easy to learn, program, and operate.


When Delta Sig­ma Cor­po­ra­tion (DSC), a lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­er of cus­tom machines for auto­mo­tive, med­ical, aero­space, and gen­er­al indus­tries, need­ed a robot­ics sup­pli­er, they called on KUKA. The part­ner­ship between DSC and KUKA fos­tered the plat­form for KUKA’s Motion Con­trol tech­nol­o­gy to become the con­trol archi­tec­ture for DSC’s cus­tom 6‑axis gantry dis­pens­ing system. 

KUKAs Motion Con­trol tech­nol­o­gy was cho­sen because it is sim­ple to learn and pro­gram, and easy to oper­ate. The 6‑axis gantry dis­pens­ing sys­tem will use a KUKA KR 16 robot attached to the gantry robot. The gantry robot along with KUKA’s PC-based con­trol plat­form yields a user-friend­ly auto­mat­ed dis­pens­ing sys­tem: exact­ly what DSC was try­ing to generate.

DSC’s new sys­tem is use­ful when an artic­u­lat­ed robot is not prac­ti­cal. It will also be use­ful in a vari­ety of indus­tries; the gantry robot com­bined with the KUKA robot and con­trol will be ide­al for dis­pens­ing solu­tions. KUKA’s Con­troller can con­trol a wide range of kine­mat­ic sys­tems and machines more intel­li­gent­ly than with typ­i­cal solu­tions. The con­troller is suit­ed to all machine types, allow­ing more intel­li­gent solu­tions to con­tin­ue to develop.

More recent­ly, KUKA unveiled its KR C4 all-in-one solu­tion. This is a con­trol sys­tem that inte­grates robot, motion, sequence, and process con­trol. The com­plete safe­ty con­troller is inte­grat­ed into KR C4, and per­forms all tasks simul­ta­ne­ous­ly. Intel­li­gent soft­ware func­tions replace the lim­it­ed hard­ware that was pre­vi­ous­ly used. Fur­ther, linked data streams replace con­ven­tion­al inter­faces, allow­ing direct communication. 

KUKA’s con­tin­ued progress on its con­trol sys­tems demon­strates its pio­neer sta­tus as we move for­ward into the future. Robots​.com offers KUKA con­trollers at a reduced price.
