At the EPHJ/EPMT/SMT show Kuka presents its new sensitive robot, the LBR iiwa. According to the discussions on the booth and the various demonstrations to see there, this robot opens completely new fields for robotics.
The LBR iiwa represents the fulfillment of Kuka’s promise to the market to present a lightweight industrial duty robot. Kuka engineers have developed a machine that opens the door to completely new automation possibilities. With mechanical and drive systems designed for industrial use, the sensitive and yielding LBR iiwa rings in an entirely new era in robotics. These capabilities are reflected in the new lightweight robot’s name: LBR iiwa – intelligent industrial work assistant.
New way to programme
This new device is programmed using Java and no longer the classical Kuka system. According to Kuka specialists, this allow not only the device to be far better integrated in the human world, but is also allows many people to be quickly at ease with it. Indeed, the robot can also be programming by apprenticeship/repetition. I did it yesterday!
Kuka presents this exciting new LBR iiwa in Geneva till the end of the week. If you plan to go to the show, don’t miss the LBR iiwa, it is worth the detour.
