KUKA Robotics Selected by Seis Group to Provide Robots and Software for Robotic Palletizing Cell

January 112006
Clinton Township, Michigan — January 11, 2005 – KUKA Robotics Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial robots, today announced it has been selected by SEIS Group, Inc. of Huntington Beach, California to supply its KUKA KR 180 PA palletizing robot and PalletTech palletizing software for SEIS’ new palletizing cells. KUKA Robotics recently partnered with SEIS to expand its robotic integration services across the western United States and will be debuting the new palletizing cell and robotics capabilities at the upcoming ATX West Show in Anaheim, California January 31-February 2.

“We are delighted to have been selected by SEIS to provide our products for their new palletizing cells,” said Joe Campbell, director of strategic alliances for KUKA Robotics Corporation. “SEIS Group’s automation integration experience and our state-of-the-art products will provide manufacturers in the western US regions with a highly flexible and innovation solution to their palletizing needs.”

“The drawbacks of manual palletizing, including employee injury, inefficiency and slow palletizing speeds, are well known to today’s manufacturers,” said Brian Mullins, co-founder & co-chairman of the board of directors for SEIS Group, Inc. “Automating this process is a natural solution. With KUKA products and our integration capabilities we can give manufacturers a high performance, reliable system they need to improve and expand their business.”

KUKA Robotics will be showcasing a KR 180 PA palletizing cell integrated by SIES Group at the ATX West show in Anaheim January 31- February 2nd and will also be highlighting SGI’s integration capabilities on its booth #4439.

The KUKA KR 180 PA palletizing robot is a light, fast & powerful robot developed especially for high-speed tasks with heavy payloads. State-of-the-art materials (Carbon fiber composites) make the robot extremely light, without sacrificing high stiffness. Its FEM-optimized kinematics have been adapted especially for palletizing. The leaner design of this 4-axis robot brings savings in maintenance and servicing.

KUKA’s PalletTech palletizing software is the company’s industry leading palletizing software developed to meet the increasing need to address flexibility and ease-of-use issues in complicated robotic palletizing applications. The software is a suite of application development and run time tools that reduces engineering and development time and enables the out-of-box implementation of complicated robotic palletizing applications.

SEIS Group, Inc. was established in 1999 and is a highly respected, creative and innovative automation company to an industrially diverse customer base. The company provides factory automation services for industrial applications to industry leading companies to help these companies realize their business goals by using factory automation systems which include robotics, PLCs, visualization and HMI, IT systems, custom software and AC/DC Drive and servos.
