KUKA LBR iiwa (Ex Demo)
The LBR iiwa is the world’s first series-produced sensitive, and therefore HRC-compatible, robot. LBR stands for “Leichtbauroboter” (German for lightweight robot), iiwa for “intelligent industrial work assistant”.
KUKA uses intelligent control technology, high-performance sensors and state-of-the-art software technologies – and thus enables fully new collaborative solutions in production technology. In this way, even the most difficult tasks that have previously been performed manually can now be automated cost-effectively.
HRC-capable robots such as the KUKA LBRs are rendered mobile and capable of performing different tasks flexibly using mobile platforms such as the KUKA flexFellow. They can thus be individually deployed at whatever location and for whatever purpose corresponds to your production requirements – dependent on the required batch size, for example. Furthermore, LBR iisy and LBR iiwa offer you maximum flexibility by means of so-called spontaneous automation: They optimally support you as an assistant in the case of workload peaks and resource bottlenecks in your production operations.
Available in two versions with payload capacities of 7 and 14 kilograms.
- 7 Kg payload
- 800mm maximum reach
- 14Kg payload
- 820mm maximum reach
Thanks to its joint torque sensors, the LBR iiwa can detect contact immediately and reduces its level of force and speed instantly. Its position and compliance control enables it to handle delicate components without creating crushing and shearing hazards.
The lightweight LBR iiwa with its high-performance servo control is able to detect contours quickly under force control. It establishes the correct installation position and mounts components quickly and with the utmost precision with an axis-specific torque accuracy of ±2% of the maximum torque. The LBR iiwa can also find small, delicate components in next to no time without your assistance.
Able to learn
You can choose from three operating modes and program the LBR iiwa via simulation: indicate the desired position and it will remember the coordinates of the path point. Stop for breaks and control it with simple touch commands.
The LBR iiwa's controller, KUKA Sunrise Cabinet, simplifies the quick start-up of even complex applications. Give your operator a third hand and have the LBR iiwa take care of unergonomic, monotonous tasks reliably and independently.
