, a global automation specialist, has added a new robot, the KMR iisy, to its autonomous mobile robot (AMR) line-up. This robot is designed for flexibility and reliability in demanding settings, making it an excellent choice for Industry 4.0 applications in production facilities and warehouses.
The KMR iisy is a mobile cobot that can move quickly and safely in a variety of work settings. It is versatile and can be used at assembly workstations, in intralogistics, and as a robot service system. It consists of the LBR iisy with a load capacity of either 11 or 15kg, and a mobile platform that can carry an additional 200kg. The KMR iisy is also ESD-certified, making it suitable for cleanroom use. It can be operated using the smartPAD pro teach pendant, eliminating the need for a second operating device.
KUKA’s new AMR generation sets the bar high for logistics 4.0, offering intelligence, flexibility, safety, and ease of use. These robots can be equipped with 3-D cameras, safety laser scanners, or IP class 54 protection for reliable performance in various environments. They use differential drive for manoeuvrability and can autonomously adapt their routes for efficient navigation. They can charge themselves at a charging station or during work, and maintenance is easy due to large access hatches on the KMR iisy. The intelligent KMReS fleet manager simplifies integration, providing a cost-effective and safe solution.
These user-friendly mobile robots enhance (intra-)logistics processes, reducing both time and costs. They are beneficial for both large corporations as well as medium-size enterprises.
