KUKA Robotics Demonstrates Four Innovative Solutions for the Plastics Industry at NPE 2009

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. & CHICAGO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 19, 2009 KUKA Robotics Booth # S-39097 will exhibit four innovative and dynamic solutions for the plastics industry in cooperation with the KUKA Robotics System Partner Network.

Flow International Corporation, an Official KUKA Robotics System Partner, will be demonstrating the flexible, space saving, multi-functional KR 16. The KR 16 will be executing dry tool paths of the waterjet process around complex 3D parts with quick change tooling ability to demonstrate milling, drilling, and material handling. The quick tool changing function uses KUKA’s hand teach device, allowing for automatic tool change function and enabling the user to teach a tool path manually using a joystick while utilizing KUKA safe robot technology. The KR16 robotic cell demonstration was designed and supplied by Flow International Corporation.

In a robotic cell designed and supplied by Official KUKA Robotics System Partner, Dyco Inc. the flexible, fast handling KR5 Sixx will be demonstrated utilizing a vision system. The vision system enables the KR5 Sixx to locate and pick random plastic bottles from a moving conveyor belt simulating loading puck carriers. This same solution could be used for material handling to pick random bottles and load cases.

KUKA Robotics will also display a KR5 Arc in a demo cell designed and supplied by Electro-Hydraulic Automation an Official KUKA Robotics System Partner. The demo cell shows the highly versatile KR5 ARC holding an air powered cutting tool to trim and cut holes in plastics parts, simulating the cuts used in vehicle dashboard openings.

KUKA Robotics will display an injection molding extraction cell using the KR5 Sixx. The KR5 Sixx features the flexibility of variable mounting options of floor or ceiling along with fast handling capabilities, will simulate the extraction of medical syringes from an injection molding machine.

The KUKA Robotics System Partner network is designed to mutually benefit each organization’s users by extending the way customers can access tailored solutions from experienced system partners with the major competitive and technological advantage of high precision KUKA robots. The KUKA Robotics System Partner Network includes experienced system builders, system providers, application specialists and expert robot integrators.

KUKA robots are utilized in many different facets of the robotics industry from automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, logistics, food, pharmaceutical, medical, foundry and plastics industries and in multiple applications including material handling, packaging, palletizing, welding and surface finishing.
