KUKA flexFELLOW-assemble contains optimally matched components which facilitate the implementation of an automated assembly application.
KUKA flexFELLOW-assemble: for sensitive assembly activities
KUKA flexFELLOW-assemble is a component package from the flexFELLOW series. All necessary hardware components for your assembly tasks from the robot through to the gripper are included in this package and directly ready for use.
KUKA flexFELLOW-assemble: your advantages
The strain on your employees is reduced since they no longer have to work in a strict cycle time. In addition the robot takes over the assembly of ergonomically demanding components, while your employees can perform other tasks in parallel. Safety-oriented functions and the sensitivity of the robot also allow you to carry out assembly activities in human-robot collaboration – HRC for short. Because of its sensitivity the robot reacts to any contact. This means the human operator can control the robot with merely a gesture.
You improve the quality of your products significantly – for instance by sensitive joining. In a transmission assembly operation, for example, the LBR iiwa ensures that no gear wheels are damaged. The same applies to the edges of the teeth, which react with extreme sensitivity to any contact. Thus the product quality of your assembly processes remains constant.
Automation solution for Industrie 4.0
The flexFELLOW-assemble allows you to integrate automation solutions into your existing systems without additional sensors. You therefore benefit from a space-saving solution with shorter cycle times. Even if inexact components are presented, your assembly partner maintains process reliability.

KUKA flexFELLOW-assemble: the components
The following components of the package can contribute to your entirely individual overall solution: the LBR iiwa, the mobile flexFELLOW platform and the right end effector for your needs. In the following section you will find all the details of the individual products.
End effector: LBR grippers
Within the package for assembly processes you require our HRC-capable LBR grippers as the appropriate end effectors.
All grippers are designed so that they pose no injury risk to people. The rounded design with no sharp edges is an important factor for injury prevention.
Every gripper has a low mass and can optionally be provided with gripping force limitation.
Our gripper portfolio offers you the choice of a wide range of different gripper types:
KUKA LBR gripper sensitive R800 This gripper allows you to regulate the gripping force sensitively. Optionally you can limit the gripping forces to values that will not cause injury.
KUKA pneumatic HRC-capable LBR grippers in three versions
Two-jaw parallel gripper in short stroke version
Two-jaw parallel gripper in long stroke version
Three-jaw centric gripper
KUKA 3D-printed pneumatic LBR grippers in two versions
Two-jaw gripper for internal/external gripping (RRMG3-MRK)
Expansion gripper (RRMGI-HRC)

Robot: LBR iiwa
The LBR iiwa is also included in the flexFELLOW-assemble package. It is HRC-capable and permits interactive working between human and machine – without a safety fence and with maximum safety for the person. In addition the LBR iiwa allows for a change in the layout of the workplace.
The LBR iiwa is available with two payload capacities: seven and 14 kilograms
The LBR iiwa is equipped with integral sensitive joint torque sensors in all seven axes for contact detection and programmable compliance.

The mobile flexFELLOW robot unit has a location-flexible platform as its base unit. The LBR iiwa is mounted on this carrier and can be equipped individually with components from our flexFELLOW-assemble package. You combine the right end effector for your needs with the mobile platform – creating a complete, tailor-made solution at the site of operation.
