KUKA Robotics has demonstrated its KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile robot working in unison with a KR IONTEC robot in a Mujin cell for efficiently palletizing and depalletizing consumer goods.
To coordinate robot movement, the cell incorporated a Mujin controller and camera system.
With an operating speed of up to two metres per second, the KUKA KMP 600-S diffDrive mobile platform automated guided vehicle (AGV) system is fast and uses laser scanners and 3D object detection to meet the highest safety requirements. Its payload capacity is up to 600 kilograms, and the vehicle requires no safety fencing to provide maximum freedom of movement for employees, while laser scanners mounted at the front and rear ensure safe operation at high speeds in all directions of travel when cycle times require it.
For fully automated palletizing/depalletizing, KUKA’s KR IONTEC medium payload robot is a highly flexible robot with what KUKA says is the best work envelope in its class. The robot is suitable for an array of industrial applications including handling, packing and palletizing for fast, efficient stacking.
On the floor, on the wall or inclined, the KR IONTEC combines compact design with the largest working envelope in its class for optimal use of space with a small footprint. Equipped with a waterproof and dustproof in-line wrist and protected motors, the robot is suitable for almost every production area.
