KUKA LBR IIWA – 7-Axis Programming

 

OCTOPUZ is proud to be able to support KUKA’s new 7-Axis LBR IIWA robot.

As one of the only offline programming software solutions in the world capable of running this robot with the accompanying KUKA Sunrise Controller, we wanted to demonstrate how all of its seven axes can be used, on a part that a typical 6-axis robot could not reach. Allowing for an incredible amount of versatility and accuracy, OCTOPUZ is looking forward to programming the wide variety of applications that this new robot will be used for.
