AUGSBURG, 11-May-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — The largest KUKA installation in Denmark, and the industry’s largest robot: the KUKA robot KR 1000 titan is located at Multicut A/S in Vildbjerg, where it supports an FMS system with four CNC machining centers at the largest, heaviest end. There’s also another KUKA robot for milling and deburring operations. The KUKA robot KR 1000 titan is undoubtedly the largest robot that we have ever dealt with – a hard-working tool that can lift and move workpieces in and out of the workstations”, says Hans Jørgen Gam, Technical Manager at QRS, who is responsible for the robotics part of Multicut’s FMS cell. Multicat is a machining and manufacturing specialist, based in Denmark. The large system is a solution where large, heavy workpieces are handled and finally machined. The robot loads in one place, and at the same time, the three other centers are running. Therefore, machine capacity can be completely exploit. “We have fully utilized the KUKA robot’s control system, so we know that the workpiece is located correctly before machining, and post-control, when we take the workpiece out again”, says Hans Jørgen Gam. Second KUKA robot for milling and deburring operations The final station, before workpieces leave the FMS system, also includes another smaller KUKA robot that mills and deburrs the edges of the holes so they are completely smooth and ready for use. The milling and deburring robot uses the KUKA.ForceTorqueControl for the operation to compensate for large variations in the workpieces. Get more information about KUKA.ForceTorqueSensor system. The technology package makes the use of KUKA industrial robot systems in sensitive robot applications possible. There`s also another KUKA robot for milling and deburring operations.

In addition, the new facility helps SGS provide a more unified and technically-aligned offering between SGS North America and SGS Baseefa located in the UK. The IECEx system was created to facilitate international trade in equipment and services used in explosive atmospheres while maintaining the required level of safety. Explosive atmospheres include areas where flammable liquids, vapors, gasses or combustible dusts are likely to occur in quantities sufficient to cause a fire or explosion, for example at an oil refinery or mine. "Having IECEx capabilities in North America complements the global certification needs of product manufacturers; opening the doors to over 30 markets by certifying their products to the SGS NA Listed Mark, IECEx, and ATEX," said Jedd Smith, Products for Hazardous Locations Technical Manager, SGS North America. The new IECEx standards that have been added to the SGS scope include: IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-11, and IEC 60079-15. This is in addition to the newly added ISA 60079 series of standards for US market access. The 60079 series of standards include products that are unable to cause an explosion but are used in a hazardous location.
