LBR iiwa / Lightweight robot

The lightweight robot opens a new chapter in the cooperation between human operator and robot. It feels its way towards objects, allows itself to be gently pushed away by people, and withdraws from them automatically when getting in direct touch. Integrated sensors make the intelligent industrial work assistant extremely precise and sensitive, it learns by allowing itself to be guided. With its seven axes the robot is incredibly agile and proceeds as a third hand of the operator. The LBR takes over tasks in the surgical medicine as well as general applications in the industry. A smooth design avoids the risk of injury and contusion.
