The Flexibility of KUKA Picking Robots

Jan 20, 2015

​KUKA Robotics has been around for over 100 years so it is no surprise that they are meeting the needs of manufacturers across the globe. This is especially seen with their KUKA picking robots. KUKA's robotic pickers are gentle on products, working with differing pressures to help reduce damage and breakage. Furthermore, KUKA robots help to decrease cycle times and speed up the overall rate of the production line floor processing.

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.

Robots​.com, 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, Robots​.com 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.
