KUKA at iREX 2019

From 18 to 21 December 2019 in Tokyo Big Sight, visitors can learn about the strengths of the robot and system builder at iREX, the world’s largest trade show  for electric/electronics, machine/tool and automotive industries.

Innovative, robot-based medical assistance functions

At iREX, KUKA will is presenting the wide range of potential medical applications of the LBR Med. One application example being demonstrated at the trade fair for this robot, which is designed for human-robot collaboration, is spinal surgery. Here, the robot is either guided manually to the area of the spine to be operated or it can automatically move to the desired position – using a suitable imaging system or a connection to an external camera. The LBR Med holds its defined position at the area to be treated and assists during the operation.

One robot, many options: the LBR Med

KUKA is presenting examples of how robots can be used for assistance tasks in the healthcare sector.

The next generation: the new KR QUANTEC features greater performance, precision and speed than ever before

The KR QUANTEC is the world’s first industrial robot to have digital Motion Modes. The software add-ons can be activated easily on the robot controller, optimizing the performance of the robot for important motion sequences. Depending on the work step, the robot can switch to and from between the individual Motion Modes. 

Performance mode: impressively versatile and the right Motion Mode for the majority of tasks – from handling and spot welding to machining and loading/unloading.

Path mode: is used for continuous-path motion and increases the precision for both low and high path velocities – for example in adhesive bonding, measuring or laser applications.

Dynamic mode: the right choice when the objective is to reduce cycle times. 

Hardware becomes software – thanks to the add-on digital plug-in Motion Modes
