AUTOMATICA 2014: KUKA to Demonstrate LBR iiwa Lightweight Robot

The future of automation will be based on direct cooperation between humans and robots. At AUTOMATICA, the flagship trade fair in Munich for robotics and automation, KUKA is opening up a new chapter in human-robot collaboration with the sensitive LBR iiwa lightweight robot.

At AUTOMATICA, being held in Munich from 3 to 6 June, KUKA has a booth in Hall A4, booth 221, covering an area of around 800 m2, where the company is demonstrating its expertise in human-robot collaboration - with exhibits taken from a variety of genuine practical applications.


KUKA will be covering the whole range from industrial robotics to service robotics. In addition to the main booth, KUKA will also be using the 6th international trade fair for automation and mechatronics to showcase further product features, such as the KUKA moiros mobile concept study.

In the special exhibition dedicated to professional service robotics in Hall A4, the Augsburg-based robot and system builder will also be presenting the KUKA Innovation Award, a science award designed to boost innovation in the field of mobile manipulation and optimize the preparation of technology transfer from the world of science and research to the world of industry.

Furthermore, KUKA robots will also be in action at the booths of numerous system and technology partners of the Bavarian high-tech company.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
