Share This Post

During the Semicon West 2022 show, Kuka Robotics will spotlight a mobile robotic solution that transfers materials in areas unsuitable for traditional automated material handling systems.

Developed in partnership with the world’s largest semiconductor fabricators, the mobile robotic wafer-handling system for human/machine collaboration enables material transport of 200 mm or 300 mm wafer boxes and SMIF boxes, open cassette machine loading and unloading.

The system combines a Kuka LBR iiwa 14 R820 CR robot mounted on one of the company‘s KMP 200 CR automated mobile platforms. Both the robot and mobile platform are cleanroom class ISO 3 rated and feature advanced safety and navigational functionality.

As a seven-axis robot, the LBR iiwa 14 R820 CR handles payloads up to 14 kg and has no external cabling for obstruction-free operation. The mobile platform is outfitted with Kuka’s omnidirectional wheel technology for flexibility and precision movement.

The solution is completely integrated with a single controller for the robot, platform and navigation as well as one software solution for all three. Safety functions include laser scanning and safety warning/safety stop fields, among others.

Semicon West 2022 is a hybrid event; the physical show takes place in San Francisco July 12-14. Kuka will be in Booth 250.

Kuka.
