KUKA LBR iiwa 7 R800 Robotic Arm
KUKA Sunrise Cabinet
KUKA smartPAD

The KUKA LBR iiwa 7 R800 robotic arm is a 7 degree of freedom robotic manipulator with an 800 mm reach and is capable of handling a 7 kg payload at the end effector. Each joint is equipped with integrated position and torque sensors which can be used for recording data or feedback control. The robotic arm is powered and controlled by the Sunrise Cabinet, which can be reprogrammed to run pre-made or user-made applications with the Sunrise Workbench software package. The smartPAD is used as a direct interface to the system where the user can run applications or manually jog the robotic arm. More information about the KUKA LBR iiwa 7 R800 robotic arm can be found on the manufacturer’s website.

BarrettHand BH8-282 Robotic Grasper

The BarretHand BH8-282 is a 3-fingered programmable grasper which can be mounted to the end effector of the KUKA robotic arm. It has integrated tactile sensors in the fingers and palm to measure pressure distribution. In addition, the grasper is augmented with a six-axis force-torque sensor in the base. More information about the BarrettHand grasper can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
