KUKA Robotics Chills Out with Cold-Weather Palletizing Robot Series

Debuting at Pack Expo 2014 (Booth #N-5247), KUKA Robotics has introduced its KR QUANTEC PA arctic Series of palletizing robots. No suits, bags, or robot protection are needed for these offerings, which can endure temperatures as low as -30°C. The KR QUANTEC PA arctic Series is an ideal fit for the refrigerated, frozen food, and beverage markets. Available in three payloads (120 kg, 180 kg, and 240 kg), they are well suited for all kinds of frigid lifting.

In addition, a robotic solution—created and provided by Official KUKA Robotics System Partner BW Container Systems—will showcase a Robotic Full Bottle Pick & Place system. A KUKA KR 16 robot equipped with an end of arm vacuum assembly will select filled bottles from the AdaptA MB system and place them into a tray. This technology can be used for case packing, large container bulk palletizing, or removal of select containers for inspection.
