KUKA KR 6 R700 sixx small robot achieves almost 50% boost in productivity
“At our plant, the WTG 1200 works reliably in 3-shift operation,” explains Markus Nickolai, Head of Production at Brüninghaus & Drissner. With great success: the mini robotic cell has resulted in significant productivity gains of up to 50 percent, as the operator is now able to prepare the next workpieces while automatic production is in progress. That is not all, however: thanks to the repeatability of the small robot, the quality of the weld seams has also improved noticeably. It is, therefore, no surprise that Paul von der Bank GmbH is already working on the next mini-cell generation with KUKA robots for its customers. The WTG 1500 will then have an external axis for turning the welding fixture.
