Kuka Automation + Robotics has doubled its range of high-performance palletising robots with a number of models designed for heavy-duty tasks such as packing bulky aggregates and chemicals.

The variants include the KR 1300 PA, which is based on Kuka’s Titan robot and can handle payloads of up to 1,300kg.

Among the other additions are palletising robots that feature five-axis kinematics and arm and hollow-wrist designs.

These offer payload options of 300kg and 470kg and reach of 3,150mm.

Completing the quartet is the KR 700 PA, a 700kg payload robot, which, according to the company, delivers very fast cycle times.

It has a reach of 3,320mm and incorporates four-axis kinematics.

The models join Kuka’s series of palletising robots, which already includes smaller payload versions such as the KR 180 PA: a nimble robot for high-speed packing solutions.

KUKA can trace a presence in the UK back to 1976, and the founding of the business KUKA Welding Systems + Robots Limited. The business in its current form, KUKA Robotics UK Limited, is wholly-owned a subsidiary of KUKA Roboter GmbH, Europe's largest manufacturer of industrial robots; and sitting within the KUKA Group of companies – encompassing robotics and automation solutions – to an annual turnover value of 1.9 Billion Euro. In 2013,, KUKA Roboter made some 20,000 industrial robots for all applications.

Within the UK, we are a stable, profitable business that fosters and encourages an active self-improvement plan for all employees ensuring we retain experienced members of staff which improves our customer interaction markedly.

The on-going training of Robot Sales Specialists, Application Engineering staff and Customer Service team is rigorous to ensure a robust understanding of our entire range. This ensures that the correct robot is specified initially, that it is appropriate to application and environment, and that post-delivery, we can support every device 24-hours-a-day.

The company moved to its current Wednesbury home late in 2011, from where sales, support and customer service operations are centred. The training facility – containing 8 training cells – was installed in the summer of 2013; and demonstration facilities including robots of all sizes, employing an external linear axis, and a moulding machine demonstration cell is a coherent experience for any visitor.

Our showroom also allows an opportunity to see some devices, such as those ideal for platen-mounted injection moulding machine use, to be the subject of a close first-hand interaction; which also includes an example of KUKA's revolutionary and world-leading LightWeight Robot (LBR).
