KUKA Controller for Dispensing Systems

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.
