100% utilization of machine tool potential:  maximize productivity with KUKA robots
 
How can you offer extremely short delivery times with machine tools? ­And, at the same time, ensure profitable and highly efficient production of even highly complex components?

KUKA has the solution: with robot-based automation that gives the productivity of your machine tools a decisive boost. You will always keep up with the ever more demanding quality requirements on the workpieces to be machined. You can also perform downstream tasks, such as assembly. At the same time, you remain flexible with regard to the ever decreasing intervals between technical modifications.

Increased productivity will help you to counter the steady fall in prices effectively. Without having to compromise on quality. KUKA robots provide consistently high precision, enabling even the tightest of delivery deadlines to be met with ease. Five KUKA robot families. And everything that makes your machine tools more efficient.

 
KR Agilus series
  • Unparalleled performance
  • Maximum speed

 

The series of small robots with unparalleled performance at the highest of speeds is also available as a waterproof variant.
KR 16-2
  • Minimized disruptive contour
  • Reaches any point, even in confined spaces.

 

With its minimized disruptive contour and streamlined design, it saves valuable space and reaches any point, even in confined spaces.
KR 30-3 and KR 60-3 series
  • Payload capacities of up to 60 kg
  • Pose repeatability of ±0.08 mm

 

It masters payloads up to 60 kg and a pose repeatability of ±0.08 mm. Precision handling of even heavy workpieces is thus no problem.
KR QUANTEC series
  • Maximum dynamic performance
  • Extreme stiffness

 

This series stands out for its maximum dynamism, extreme stiffness and high performance as well as its low weight and streamlined design.
KR QUANTEC K series
  • Especially large downward reach

 

KUKA shelf-mounted robots are designed for an especially large downward reach. They optimally access the workspace from above.
KR FORTEC
  • Masters payloads up to 600 kg
  • Pose repeatability of ±0.08 mm

 

It masters payloads up to 600 kg and a pose repeatability of ±0.08 mm. Precision handling of even heavy workpieces is thus no problem.
 
17% shorter machining times: with KUKA robots, you gain valuable time
 

Where the accuracy of the machine tool is not required, the robot takes over tasks such as drilling, brushing and deburring, thereby reducing the spindle run time per part. In KUKA’s own production, this cuts the machining time per component from 48 to 40 min. That means a 20% increase in machine productivity. On components requiring intensive machining, the robot can also carry out roughing, leaving the machine to take care of the smoothing alone.

50% HIGHER THROUGHPUT DUE TO 24-HOUR OPERATION

Where productivity is concerned, every second counts. KUKA robots enable you to fully exploit the potential of your machine tools day and night. In KUKA’s own production, a robot extends the operating time of a machining center from 16 hours a day to 24 hours without extra manpower. Boosting productivity by no less than 50%.

0% NEED TO ADAPT: PERSONNEL AND MACHINES UNDERSTAND KUKA ROBOTS IMMEDIATELY

The convenient, universal interface makes KUKA robots extremely easy to operate. Interacting with the Sinumerik Run MyRobot software package from Siemens®, KUKA.PLC mxA allows a KUKA robot teamed up with machine tools to be visualized, operated, programmed and set up in the same system that the user is familiar with from the machine tools environment. And all this using the machine tool’s control panel.

MORE SPACE FOR YOUR SUCESS: THE VIRTUAL PROTECTED SPACE

KUKA robots monitor their workspace by means of safe software. This means that they can also be operated in confined spaces, for example under craneways or in facilities with low ceilings.

CNC AND ROBOTICS. ALL OPERATED BY SINUMERIK

Use a six-axis robot for machining and handling tasks directly at the CNC machine. The central user interface of the KUKA robot on the SINUMERIK-CNC opens up the possibility of seamlessly integrating robots into machine concepts and production processes using the KR C4 controller without the need for lengthy training. For unprecedented flexibility and increased productivity, e.g. in fully automated 24/365 operation.
