Just after presenting its new heavy load palletizers for 300 and 470kg, KUKA introduces a new range of palletizers 120-180-240kg.
As for heavy carriers,the old-style 4-axis parallelogram has been changed to a 5-axis robot. With 27 cycles per minute (cycle ISO : 400mm + 2000mm + 400mm) and a load of 180kg, these robots are the fastest available on the market. With a long range of 3200mm it can palletize up to 4 pallets simultaneously. All these robots are equipped with a hollow wrist (diam. 60mm) for a simple access to the gripper. They can be programmed offline thanks to Flex_Pal software allowing to create or modify palletization mapping on PC in real time, without production interruption.
