KUKA at CIROS 2016
New robots for new markets and the future of human-robot collaboration: from 6 to 9 July, KUKA is presenting innovative solution and concepts at CIROS, hall 3H, booth A158.
New robots for new markets and industries
The importance of Automation is growing throughout industries and markets. Innovation leader KUKA is presenting its answer to this develoment: a small robot which is specifically tailored to the needs of the electronics industry – one of the largest and fastest-growing markets for automation.
The KR 3 AGILUS, the newest member of the KUKA small robot family, is not only fast and extremely precise, but also particularly compact. The small robot with a payload of 3 kilogram is an ideal solution for small cell concepts in confined spaces.
Human-robot collaboration with the LBR iiwa
In the “Speed & Sensitivity” application shown at CIROS, the LBR iiwa robot is partially installed in a protected space – quite deliberately, in order to demonstrate a work situation combining an enclosed zone with an adjacent open zone of human-robot collaboration (HRC).
In the protected zone, the robot moves at high speed with a component in order to perform its task. High speeds always mean a risk of potential injury, which is why this area has been secured by means of a light curtain. When the robot switches to safe human-robot collaboration mode, it can move through the light curtain into the shared human-robot workspace. Here it uses its sensitive touch to assemble part of an automatic transmission and moves more slowly.
