The interaction of robots and machine tools is the focus of KUKA’s trade fair appearance at AMB 2016. KUKA will be presenting solutions for the metalworking sector at the international exhibition for automation.
“Ready-to-use” – KUKA demonstrates customized automation solutions for machine tools
The world of machine tool users is spinning ever faster, which is why automation solutions must also be implemented more and more quickly. KUKA aims to provide its customers with the best possible support. For this, KUKA is expanding its product portfolio with additional automation components, such as a gripper package, and is supplying its partners with “ready-to-use“ robots.
Operating KUKA industrial robots, even without special programming knowledge
Visitors can take a closer look at KUKA at the company’s trade fair booth. Among other things, they have the chance to see industrial robots of the KR QUANTEC, KR CYBERTECH and KR AGILUS series as well as operator control elements and robot cells. The KR AGILUS, for example, will be on display in its waterproof variant, equipped with a gripper package. It is ideal for use in machine tools, since it is not affected by high external stress factors such as swarf, cooling lubricants, water spray or oil. To make operator control of robots as simple as possible, KUKA has developed KUKA.mxAutomation, an interface that allows the user to program robots even without special programming knowledge. With the Siemens SINUMERIK Operate user interface, execution of the machine tool and robot programs can be controlled and monitored on parallel channels.
