KUKA KR CYBERTECH
Automated machine tending and welding in confined spaces are tasks that place extreme demands on industrial robots. Not only do they have to work accurately and precisely, but they also need speed and agility to increase productivity even in very tight spaces – especially when manufacturing or processing small parts and products. The KR CYBERTECH series was designed to meet these requirements better than the traditional solution of using larger robots which offer high precision but lack flexibility in their movements. The robots in the KR CYBERTECH series stand out for their streamlined design and minimally disruptive contours, enabling them to operate with maximum agility and flexibility. When compared to other industrial robot offerings available on the market, the KR CYBERTECH has virtually countless combinations of powerful configurations.

Hainbuch Automated Change Station
Hainbuch automated change station: A stocking and changing station placed on the workpiece feeder belt of a vertical lathe. To setup, the spindle passes with the chuck over the combination of clamping head and end-stop to be changed and it is swapped completely reliably within seconds by a pneumatic pulse. The workpiece to be clamped is then directly grabbed from the next changing station and clamped. Because of this design, there is no need for extra automation. However, the machine can become amazingly flexible. Using a clamp check with air sensing the efficiency can be increased even further. This simple practical solution is suitable for a variety of machines because the changing station can be installed directly beside an industrial robot or gantry. A genuine high tech example that you would expect from Hainbuch and if you imagine that this is the only one available from think again, this was just one of several of their automation solutions.
