KUKA robots for high payloads tend machine tools

Three KUKA robots from the KR QUANTEC pro family are in operation at the plant of Bizerba SE & Co. KG. They guarantee that aluminum housings are reliably fed to two grinding machines where they are rough and fine-ground and polished. The aluminum housings are used for sausage cutting machines.

HRC-compliant KUKA robots in quality assurance


MRK-Systeme GmbH has developed an automation solution with HRC capability (human-robot collaboration) for the BMW Group using KUKA robots for high payloads. It enables the factory in Landshut, Bavaria to carry out quality assurance for crankshaft housing in an ergonomically friendly manner.

KUKA KR QUANTEC loads and unloads machine tool in its own production


KUKA Roboter GmbH, with its headquarters in Augsburg, is one of the leading manufacturers of industrial robots. The company also relies on automation for its own robot production. Most recently, a machining center from Burkhardt & Weber was put into operation. This is used to machine components for the KR QUANTEC robots. The machine is loaded and unloaded by a KUKA robot that also processes the workpieces, measuring up to 1.5 m in length, during otherwise non-productive time.



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.
