1. Laser robotic processing is often used for higher-end application requirements and is often assembled into complex automated production lines. This requires customized design. In the future, there will be more and more customized system integrations. How can KUKA meet market needs?
In the field of three-dimensional processing, KUKA can provide subsystems for different application environments and product development such as process software systems, offline programming systems, quality monitoring systems, weld tracking and process process control systems.
2. Laser processing based on cutting and welding is developing rapidly. Assembling industrial robots and laser optics can realize three-dimensional flexible laser processing. What is the prospect of laser processing combined with robots?
From the perspective of industry development status, industrial robots and laser industries are in a process of rapid development. Laser technology, especially cutting and welding, has many complementary features with the robot's high flexibility and high efficiency. However, there are several key points that need to be paid attention to in the marriage of the two, that is, laser processing requires higher precision, and the process of robot and laser requires a higher degree of matching. KUKA has successively developed KR70LP series robots and KUKA Simpro3.0 offline programming system that can be used for high-efficiency cutting. The cutting speed of the robot system can reach 120m/min, and the accuracy can reach ±0.01, which can meet almost all high-efficiency and high-precision cutting requirements. The software system can almost accommodate the current mainstream 3D modeling software formats, and the operation is simple and can realize fast offline program generation.
Therefore, with the continuous upgrading of robots and the promotion of laser technology, 3D laser cutting will play an increasingly important role in industries such as automobile manufacturing, shipbuilding, aerospace, and railway locomotives.
