September 26, 2013

Kuka-mobile-robot-at-Hannover-Messe At the recent Hannover Messe trade fair, KUKA displayed their concept mobile robot showing how it could work a huge turbine blade.
The device consisted of a KUKA omnimove mobile platform, a KR Quantec shelf-mounted robot arm, a KR C4 controller, and an autonomous nav system.
KUKA calls it E-mobility for extra large (XXL) workpieces; the press and viewers called it an amazing monster.
