KUKA Robotics Demonstrates Automated De-Palletizing Solution

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 9, 2009— KUKA Robotics will display the KR 500 570-2 PA in a de-palletizing demonstration. The KR 500 570-2 PA , a heavy duty robot with a payload up to 570kg and three different palletizing algorithms for mixed and unmixed palletizing is known for it’s space saving and cost-effective support in a spectrum of palletizing applications. The KR 500 570-2 PA will be tooled with a state-of-the art KUKA designed Servo controlled layer gripper known for the ability to remove entire layers from a pallet of virtually any material in a single cycle. The Servo layer gripper motors are synchronized with the KR 500 570-2 PA allowing for a more time saving, cost efficient solution for palletizing when mixing different product layers on the same pallet. The KR 500 570-2 PA user friendly interface can communicate directly to a warehouse management system software and is suitable for building rainbow or starter pallets in distribution centers or feeding a layer descrambler for a down stream case buffer. This same system can also be integrated to perform slip sheet handling and empty pallet handling.
