KUKA small robot enables handover made to measure

At a southern German automotive manufacturer, a KUKA KR 6 R900 sixx robot from the KR AGILUS series precisely picks up unsorted clutch discs out of wire baskets and transfers them to the honing machine for further processing. This is made possible by the transmission of coordinates via 3D vision sensor.

Convincing through 3D position detection and cycle time

The 3D simulation software used for this at HBi Robotics GmbH stands for flexibility. Thanks to the precise analysis of motion sequences by means of 3D position detection, obstructions are detected in advance. Beyond this, it can contribute to the precise definition of the cycle time for a complex automation system.

KUKA small robots flexibly deployable

Since the spring of 2017, the solution has been ensuring that the clutch discs are set down consistently and precisely. If the product is discontinued, the system can be easily reprogrammed accordingly. Use in combination with another machine tool is also conceivable.


Customers from the automotive industry have found these characteristics so convincing that further automation solutions are already being planned.
