KUKA.ConveyorTech organizes the cooperation of robots and conveyors. The software automatically adapts the actions of the robot to the motion of an assembly line or conveyor belt. In this way, the robot can work on parts on a fast-moving conveyor or move them from one conveyor to another.

Functions of KUKA.ConveyorTech

The KUKA.ConveyorTech technology package enables fast commissioning and simple programming of conveyor applications. It enables the use of conveyor systems with resolvers – for small robots with encoders. Segmentation occurs without loss of cycle time.

KUKA.ConveyorTech also offers the possibility of multiple tracking: Up to three conveyors can be monitored easily, including linear and circular conveyors in mixed operation. Up to 20 components can be tracked simultaneously per conveyor.

KUKA.ConveyorTech and KR AGILUS in cooperation

The KR AGILUS and KUKA.ConveyorTech enable automated pickup of parts from a moving belt.

Advantages of the KUKA.ConveyorTech software

Shorter cycle times

The robot uses the KUKA.ConveyorTech software in the background to synchronize with the conveyor motion. This means that it is not necessary to stop the conveyor belt during the production process. 

Synchronization “on the fly”

The motions between synchronized and unsynchronized program sections are possible with constant conveyor velocity. As the conveyor runs continuously, the entire production process is more flexible. The robot cycle is not affected by the conveyor cycle.

Greater flexibility

Thanks to their high accuracy, the conveyors can also be used flexibly in assembly processes.
