KUKA KR Quantec PA Arctic Series of Palletizing Robots KUKA Robotics Corporation introduces the KUKA KR Quantec PA Arctic Series of Palletizing Robots. No suits, no bags, no robot protection is needed for the KR QUANTEC PA Arctic Series to endure temperatures as low as -30°C. The KR QUANTEC PA Arctic Series is an ideal fit for the refrigerated, frozen food and beverage markets with availability in 3 payloads of 120 kg, 180 kg, and 240 kg with a reach of 3,195 mm makes them perfect for all kinds of frigid lifting! The KUKA KR 3 AGILUS The new KR 3 AGILUS is the latest robotic breakthrough that redefines the 3 kg class by setting new standards and mastering various tasks with agility, precision, and flexibility even in extremely narrow spaces. The KR 3 AGILUS is one of the fastest robots in its class offering minimum cycle times and larger production outputs. This small robot even makes it possible for simple and cost-efficient cell concepts thanks to its low weight, compact design, and flexibility. Introducing KUKA.PickControl KUKA's new PickControl software combines conveyor tracking and image recognition to locate, track, pick, and place parts from moving conveyors. A major feature of this technology package is load sharing, which allows the workload to be distributed among multiple robots as the user sees fit. This helps to meet the needs of different production scenarios, for example, dealing with peaks in production. The application meets the requirements posed by the logistics and consumer goods sectors, but is also suitable for other industries and tasks. About KUKA KUKA is one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial robots. The robots range from 3 kg to 1,300 kg payloads, and 540 mm to 4,000 mm reach, all controlled from a common PC based controller platform. KUKA robots are utilized in diverse range of industries for packaging & palletizing, such as consumer goods, food, beverage, and pharmaceutical.
