New partnership with robot manufacturer KUKA

Robatech is announcing its collaboration with KUKA, a provider of intelligent robotics, plant and system technology. LBR iisy cobots from KUKA can now be used with Robatech adhesive application systems for 360° gluing processes. This gives customers the choice between cobot models from Universal Robots, FANUC, and KUKA.

“Cobots can easily automate two-dimensional or three-dimensional adhesive application in motion patterns,” explains René Gnos, Industry Manager Automotive at Robatech. “This makes adhesive application faster, of higher quality and more reliable. It’s highly important to us to make the interaction of cobot and adhesive application system as simple as possible, regardless of which cobot manufacturer our customers prefer. Of course, we are delighted to welcome KUKA as a new partner.”

The cobot and adhesive application system suitable for product bonding are connected via a Robatech integration kit. Depending on the cobot manufacturer, the integration kit includes different brackets for mounting the application head and heating hose on the cobot. The adhesive application system is operated via a browser on an external operator terminal or via the touchscreen of the melting device.
