KUKA Robotics Corp. recently announced the introduction of its new KUKA KR 40 PA(TM) case packing robot. Reportedly the industry's fastest case packing robot, the new unit is constructed using a carbon fiber composite. This material makes the robot arm lighter, faster and less expensive, thereby ultimately increasing the customer's throughput. The new robot delivers the flexibility of a fully programmable robot solution, at rates normally associated with CAM-driven mechanisms. Its carbon fiber design enables high speeds with the largest work envelope in industry. "Robotic packaging and palletizing is reshaping the whole supply chain," said Joe Campbell, director of strategic alliances. "Our customers want the flexibility of a robot with the highest possible pack rates, and the KR40 delivers with the industry's best performance."
