Mumbai: KUKA Robotics (India) Private Limited, launched its new heavy payloads industrial robots in India. These robots will address the potential demand from FMCG, logistics and food & beverage industry in the country. These heavy duty palletizing Robots KR 1000 1300 titan PA & KR700 PA, that can safely load goods of 1300 kg & 700kg respectively.

The growth of Industrial robots is gathering pace in India as FMCG, Logistics & Food & beverage industries increase their operations in the country.

According to estimates, the $70 billion food and beverage industry & $24 billion FMCG industry has an annual growth rate of 20%. With the Indian economy expected to grow at the rate of 6-8%, the $14 billion logistic industry is poised for a quantum leap thereby providing a huge potential for palletizing robots.

Mr. Raj Singh Rathee, Managing Director of KUKA Robotics (India) Private Limited said, "We are delighted to bring in the world’s heaviest palletizing robot into India. With an improving economy and increased demand for goods, there is a huge potential for designing products to improve palletizing efficiency in Indian industry. As per our internal research we feel that the demand for heavy palletizing robots is likely to grow in India and we feel that there is a large market for them in the FMCG, logistics and consumer goods industry in India."

Today KUKA India’s key clientele include a large number of automobile and other engineering as well as non-engineering companies. With Indian operations headquartered in Gurgaon, KUKA India has a state of the art Service and Training centre in Pune.

KUKA Palletizing Robot

KUKA has probably the world’s widest available range of palletizing robots. They are characterized by extremely short cycle times and long reaches, and can be used to implement virtually any customer-specific palletizing solution for a payload range from 40 kg to 1,300 kg.

The KR 1000 1300 “titan” PA is the star of the product range: it can lift an impressive 1,300 kg; it elegantly handles and palletizes even the heaviest work pieces with ease. This heavyweight giant is the big brother of the KR 1000 “titan”, the world’s first robot with a load-bearing capacity of 1,000 kg.

Together with its strong network of system partners, KUKA Roboter meets the demand for high output rates and efficient palletizing with a convincing package of solutions: all KUKA palletizing robots have a large working envelope and thus allow high stack heights and use of even the largest grippers. Furthermore, short cycle times and an integrated operator control concept ensure high cost-effectiveness.
