The Flexibility of KUKA Picking Robots
KUKA Robotics, a company that has been around in one form or another for over 100 years, is dedicated to making robots to meet all of their customers’ needs. So, in addition to their assembly, welding and machining capabilities, KUKA also makes picking robots that are flexible and easy to use. A robot’s flexibility and versatility is key to optimization on the production line.
KUKA robotic pickers are gentle on products, despite its size or weight. These robots work with variable pressures and a delicate grasp on materials that helps to reduce breakage, while also decreasing cycle times. Ultimately, this speeds up the rate of production on the line and improves the overall productivity of the facility.
KUKA picking robots are incredibly versatile and can save manufacturers thousands of dollars on extra equipment. Unlike dedicated machines that are built to service a single product year after year, the flexibility of KUKA robotic picking systems allow manufacturers to change up their product lines to stay ahead of demand and competitors. KUKA pickers are able to perform several different kinds of applications.
These robotic KUKA picking systems also offer unmatched repeatability and accuracy, despite the batch size. This increased accuracy decreases errors and increases the quality of the end product. The robots also bring a decrease in downtime since they do not need breaks. This avoids unproductive time throughout the work day, further improving productivity.
RobotWorx, a certified integrator for KUKA Robotics, has many different ranges of KUKA picking robots in our warehouse. Perhaps you need a KR 10 R900 SIXX with a small footprint and incredible flexibility, or a KR 180 that is a high performance picker with a 180kg payload and comes with a narrow footprint. There is also a KUKA LBR IIWA 7 R800 collaborative robot that is made of aluminum and has 7 axes of freedom allowing for extreme flexibility and precision with enhanced safety sensors. Your job may also call for a heavy-duty industrial robot that has a large payload of 500kg and large work envelope like the KUKA KR 500.
No matter the picking job, RobotWorx has a robot that will perfectly fit your need and application. Our highly-skilled group of engineers, technicians and salesmen will work to get you the perfect system at the right price.
