Precise, fast and durable: KUKA presses for the foundry sector
One of the most difficult and costly tasks in die casting is deburring. For this task, KUKA has an efficient and cost-effective trim press in its portfolio which can be directly integrated into a die casting cell. KUKA's sliding/tilting trim presses are characterized by even more efficiency in deburring of castings and a very user-friendly operator control. Features such as the drive concept, Dialog IV controller, simple programming and intuitive touch operation ensure process-reliable automation and a high degree of flexibility in the configuration of casting cells. With the series of fast trimming presses, KUKA also has the ideal solution for the increasing demands of production.
Flexible and reliable deburring with the KUKA Pre-Machining Cell
A KR 160 nano robot deburrs cast components in the automated Pre-Machining Cell. Feeder, shape division burrs and gates can thus be removed. A further advantage: flexibility. The built-in turntable, which can be aligned via the KUKA KR C4 controller, places components of different shapes and sizes in the preferred position. The result are cast products of a very high and consistent quality. In addition, the changeover to automated production relieves the strain on people and is more economical than conventional manual work.
Software for die-casting systems: automation from a single source
KUKA offers die-casting automation solutions from a single source, from robots to system planning. That is why KUKA offers you not only an entire robot portfolio for foundries, but software solutions such as KUKA.Sim as well. System layouts can be simply, quickly and efficiently created by using this simulation and offline programming software. In collaboration with Visual Components, KUKA can simulate a die-casting shop fully in 3D which you can then experience in virtual reality.
Industrie 4.0: minimizing downtime, increasing productivity
In the foundry industry too trends such as digitalization, networking and smart production are playing an increasingly important role. KUKA offers KUKA Connect, a cloud-based software platform that allows you to access and analyze the data of your KUKA robots from anywhere at any time.
