KUKA cell4_loading modular

The automated handling cell offers an extremely economical solution for the loading and unloading of machine tools.

Flexible loading cell with modular concept allows a high degree of individualization 

The KUKA loading/unloading cell is quickly available and, thanks to numerous hardware and software options, can be easily configured into a customized solution in the field of loading/unloading. The robotic cell can load, for example, CNC machines, friction welding machines, measuring machines or injection molding machines, and is therefore particularly suitable for customers in the automotive, Tier 1 and general industry sectors.

Machine loading exactly as required in scalable robot cell

  • Simple extension

    Thanks to the modular design, the cell can be easily expanded with additional components

  • Individual grippers

    Prepared for the customer's gripper fingers and individually developed for each cell 

  • Easy control

    Uniform visualization via KUKA.HMI for simplified operation on each operating device

Robot cell for loading and unloading of machine tools

The automated handling cell consists of a KUKA robot with gripper (KR QUANTEC), two accumulating feed belts for individual parts, a hinged chain conveyor for finished parts and a reject component container that can be removed through a separate safety door. A protective enclosure secures the cell against unauthorized access.
