KUKA Robotics Corporation: Product manipulation robot
At Pack Expo, Nercon will be showcasing Kuka's KR-40 PA robot developed especially for product manipulation.
Cycle speeds from 50 to 80 cycles/min and payloads of up to 40 kg can be attained depending on the product and end-of-arm tooling needed for the application. Carbon fiber composite materials make the robot extremely light without sacrificing stiffness. Its FEM-optimized kinematics have been adapted especially for product handling. The leaner design of this 4-axis robot significantly increases the cycle time rate.
