Case Studies

Brewery is More Competitive with Robotic Packaging and Palletizing System

POSTED: 06/01/2008

Problem: Medium-sized breweries can survive in a tightening market only with mature marketing concepts and unusual product ideas. The packaging industry, too, is being put more and more to the test by the segmentation of

A Turn for the Better -- Gripper Extends Robot's Work Envelope

POSTED: 06/01/2008

When packaging stamped parts, a KUKA robot reaches out beyond its "natural" work envelope - an advantage which makes investment in a larger robot unnecessary. This cost-effective solution is based on an eccentric gripper by means of which the carrier being used can be filled all the way to the

KUKA Creates System to Remove Securing Bands from Empty Bottle Crates

POSTED: 06/23/2003

Problem: Securing bands which hold crates of empty bottles together during transport back to the filling plant must be cut and removed before the bottles can be washed and refilled. The extent to which this process can be rationalized is shown by a robot functioning as
