Laser cutting with KUKA Robotics

Feb 4, 2014

Using a KUKA laser cutting robot for your cutting application will help to eradicate interruptions and downtime. The safety environment is further improved as it removes human workers from the particles and metal shards that are released during the laser cutting process.


Safe­ty is a key to any man­u­fac­tur­ing indus­try. When safe­ty is not a pri­or­i­ty in a shop, there are more instances of down­time and pro­duc­tion inter­rup­tions, due to sick­ness and injuries. When you use a KUKA laser cut­ting robot for your cut­ting appli­ca­tion, these types of inter­rup­tions can be almost com­plete­ly erad­i­cat­ed, which improves your safe­ty lev­el, while also improv­ing the lev­el of morale in your factory.

Any time you cut a piece of mate­r­i­al, tiny par­ti­cles sur­round­ing the edges of the mate­r­i­al will be released in the air. If you’re talk­ing about food par­ti­cles or biodegrad­able par­ti­cles, that may not be a big deal. But, KUKA laser cut­ting robot­ic sys­tems are usu­al­ly used in met­al plate cut­ting. When met­al is cut, very small shards can be released into the air. If a human work­er was per­form­ing the cut­ting appli­ca­tion close to the work piece, those shards could be breathed into their res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tem and cause buildup and dis­ease over time.

Anoth­er issue that may be a prob­lem cut­ting appli­ca­tions with­out the use of robots like the KUKA laser cut­ter is the issue of work­ers burn­ing or cut­ting their hands dur­ing the instance of man­u­al appli­ca­tion. When choos­ing a KUKA robot­ic laser cut­ter, man­u­fac­tur­ers are get­ting a sys­tem that keeps work­ers back away from the dan­ger zone dur­ing oper­a­tion, which keeps their body away from the heat and pos­si­ble par­ti­cles pro­duced dur­ing the appli­ca­tion process. When down­time is decreased and work­ers are no longer ill, morale is raised in the shop over­all, which is always a good thing.
