KUKA to Showcase Innovative Solutions for Packaging and Palletizing at PACK EXPO International

KUKA will display its industry-leading palletizing and packaging
solutions alongside its System Partners at the annual packaging
tradeshow in Chicago

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#innovativeKUKA
Robotics
, a global supplier of intelligent automation solutions,
will be demonstrating its robotic automation capabilities for the
packaging industry among more than 2,500 world-class industry exhibitors
at PACK EXPO International in Chicago from October 14-17. PACK EXPO
International is the largest packaging event in the world hosting more
than 50,000 professionals from all packaged goods industries.

Attendees can visit KUKA’s booth #N-5629 to view a series of
demonstrations and videos in conjunction with KUKA’s System Partners
Autotec Engineering and FOCUS Integration. There will also be a team of
KUKA’s application experts on hand to discuss which solutions can help
attendees maximize production while lowering unscheduled downtime. The
solutions on display include:

  • LBR iiwa: The lightweight LBR iiwa (Intelligent Industrial Work
    Assistant) robot is the first series-produced sensitive robot suitable
    for human-robot collaborations. This robot has integrated, sensitive
    torque sensors in all 7 axes giving the robot contact detection and
    programmable compliance to avoid collisions, thereby eliminating the
    need for expensive safety fencing. The LBR iiwa from KUKA is available
    in two payloads: 7 kg and 14 kg with reaches of 800 mm and 820 mm.
  • KR 6 R900 AGILUS: Known for its high working speeds and
    precision, the KR AGILUS series offers low space requirements and the
    choice between installation on the floor, ceiling or wall. Paired with
    PickControl and ConveyorTech, KUKA’s robot-based software solutions
    for conveyor tracking, KR AGILUS robots can quickly switch between
    different consumer goods production scenarios. Using this software,
    the robots can monitor up to three conveyors at once, including linear
    and circular conveyors in mixed operation.
  • KUKA KR 60 L45: Combining a compact, modular design with a KUKA
    KR 60 L45, FOCUS Integration’s CUBE is designed to provide palletizing
    automation to lines that don’t fit the requirements of centralized
    palletizing either because conveyance is too costly or production
    rates are too low. These units ship on a single platform, install in
    hours and are ready to run upon receipt. The CUBE’s revolutionary
    software program allows for ease of programming new case sizes along
    with pallet patterns. It can be outfitted with options such as
    slipsheet placement and be completely conveyorized.
  • KR QUANTEC PA: The KR QUANTEC PA series offers a robust design
    and high-performance motors that allow for up to 27 cycles per minute
    in palletizing operations. The base frame of this palletizing series
    is streamlined offering a small footprint to fit in more confined
    spaces. The KR QUANTEC PA series is ideal for heavy lifting in the
    palletizing and packaging industry with availability in payloads of
    120 kg, 180 kg, and 240 kg all with a reach of 3,195 mm.
