KUKA Robotics Canada Presents on Mobile Robot Safety at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show 2019

KUKA will showcase mobility and collaboration along with the New Generation KR QUANTEC robot at Canada’s largest manufacturing event from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#CMTS--KUKA Robotics Canada Ltd., an intelligent automation solutions global supplier, will be exhibiting and presenting on mobile robotics safety measures at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) in Ontario from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3. The bi-annual event provides a unique, hands-on learning environment where global leaders from Canada’s largest manufacturing industries, such as aerospace and automotive, can discover revolutionary manufacturing technologies to support and grow their businesses. Visitors will have a chance to attend a variety of sessions to learn more about the newest technologies, areas for growth and best practices within the industry.

At the event, KUKA will display its automation solutions at booth #1087 including its mobile robots to demonstrate precise material handling and touch sensing; a welding demo with two KR CYBERTECH nanos: a KR 8 R1620 and a KR 8 R1620 arc HW that uses KUKA RoboTeam software to show synchronized motion between both robots and the DKP 400 positioner; and a ready2_educate cell. Representatives from KUKA will be on-site to assist with demonstrations, answer questions and explain the benefits of these solutions.

KUKA will also display the newest version of its best-selling product, the KR QUANTEC robot, an all-around robot that can be used for a number of applications, such as handling, spot welding, and high path accuracy processes such as laser cutting and milling. The newest version can carry a payload of up to 300 kilograms and is ideal for nearly every market segment, including the automotive, aerospace, foundry and medical industries. This robot uses enhanced oil for a longer lifespan and has leaner interference contours and is faster and more precise. The KR QUANTEC series is the world’s first industrial robot range to have digital motion modes which ensures optimal robot motion for specific applications.

“The new generation of our KR QUANTEC robot is our best yet - built for maximum flexibility and lowest total cost of ownership, it sets a new standard for traditional manufacturing and Industry 4.0,” said Yarek Niedbala, VP of Sales at KUKA Robotics Canada. “For example, our Digital Motion Modes let customers quickly change the performance of the robot from speed-focused to high path accuracy.”

In addition to the demonstrations, Denise Ebenhoech, Regional Head of Advanced Robotic Applications at KUKA, will present the “Safety Considerations of Mobile Robot Systems Implementations in a Collaborative Environment” session at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2. As the demand for personalized and varied products grows, manufacturers are turning to more flexible solutions like collaborative and mobile robots to meet production needs. The speaking session will discuss the safety considerations that manufacturers must consider when adopting mobile and collaborative robots, as well as share strategies for protecting workers.

“CMTS brings together the top global leaders in automation, and we’re honored to be one of them,” said Ed Manera, General Manager of KUKA Robotics Canada. “We’ll have the opportunity to share our vast expertise, introduce new products and demonstrate technologies that will enable our customers to succeed in a global market.”
