Functions of KUKA.ConveyorTech
The KUKA.ConveyorTech technology package enables fast commissioning and simple programming of conveyor applications. It enables the use of conveyor systems with resolvers – for small robots with encoders. Segmentation occurs without loss of cycle time.
KUKA.ConveyorTech also offers the possibility of multiple tracking: Up to three conveyors can be monitored easily, including linear and circular conveyors in mixed operation. Up to 20 components can be tracked simultaneously per conveyor.
Advantages of the KUKA.ConveyorTech software
Shorter cycle times
The robot uses the KUKA.ConveyorTech software in the background to synchronize with the conveyor motion. This means that it is not necessary to stop the conveyor belt during the production process.
Synchronization “on the fly”
The motions between synchronized and unsynchronized program sections are possible with constant conveyor velocity. As the conveyor runs continuously, the entire production process is more flexible. The robot cycle is not affected by the conveyor cycle.
Thanks to their high accuracy, the conveyors can also be used flexibly in assembly processes.
