LBR stands for "lightweight robot", iiwa for "intelligent industrial work assistant". The LBR iiwa redefines the possibilities for industrial robotics. For the first time, human and robot can work together on highly sensitive tasks in close cooperation. Safety fences are dispensed with, new applications are opened up and the way is paved for greater cost-effectiveness and utmost efficiency. The collaborative, sensitive robot LBR iiwa is available in two types, with payloads of seven and 14 kg.
These compact, space-saving robots from KUKA are among the fastest and most reliable robots in their class.
KUKA robots with low payloads are particularly suitable for small-scale activities such as component testing, assembly of small parts, or grinding, polishing and bonding.
Potential applications for medium payload robots range from simple handling tasks to complex operations such as measuring air currents in the wind tunnel or sewing leather seat covers.
KUKA robots from the high payload range are particularly sought after for spot welding, handling and loading/unloading tasks. Their long reach and great flexibility make them indispensable partners.
With payloads of up to 1300 kg, these robots can e.g. handle side panels in automotive body-in-white construction or, in the palletizing variant, carry out tasks in the beverage or building materials industries.
KUKA robots are available not just as standard models, but also, for specific requirements, as shelf-mounted, palletizing or press-to-press robots, as well as a version for foundry applications.
