Arctic Robotic Design Guide
How can you increase the productivity of your freezer, lower operation and labor costs without sacrificing product quality? Read the arctic robot design guide from Kuka to learn how.
The industrial freezer environment is an unfriendly, demanding place for people to work, and a perfect application for robotic automation. Unfortunately, until now there were no robot systems designed from the ground up for freezer applications. Read about new robotic technology designed specifically for this environment.
Quick – think about an inhospitable environment where a robot should be deployed, an application that saps productivity, challenges workers, increases injuries, and increases costs. Most manufacturing professionals would think of die casting, forging, welding, grinding, painting – applications that are typically hot, dirty, noisy, and dangerous.
Now go the other direction, and think about the ice cream you had last night, and think about the freezer where it was packaged and palletized. The industrial freezer environment is an unfriendly, demanding place for people to work, and a perfect application for robotic automation. Unfortunately, until 2004, there were no robot systems designed from the ground up for freezer applications. KUKA changed that with the introduction of the fi rst robot designed specifi cally for applications in deep freeze environments, the KUKA KR 180 PA™ Arctic Palletizing Robot.Download white paper
