(Robotics&AutomationNews) Six Kuka heavy-duty titan robots were used for stacking heavy steel beams at Mannstædt, a German manufacturer of steel products. With a few exceptions, the use of robots in steel production had previously been uncharted territory. The handling of very heavy steel beams was previously not possible for robots, says Kuka.
Six Kuka KR 1000 titan robots are now installed at Mannstaedt. Following delivery by conveyor, the special profiles are stacked by the robots in a space-saving manner. The stacks are then conveyed out of the robot station for shipment to the customers.
