Core competency in small robots expanded
The KR AGILUS robot series, the new small robot family from KUKA, is making its world premiere. The KR AGILUS excels in the 6 kg and 10 kg payload categories with utmost precision at extremely high speeds. It is predestined for handling tasks with very short cycle times.
New arrivals in the KR QUANTEC family
In their first family outing together, the variants of the KR QUANTEC series are demonstrating their broad performance range. The robot family covers the entire high payload range from 90 to 300 kg, with reaches from 2,500 to 3,100 mm. At AUTOMATICA, press-linking robots for the metalworking industry, shelf-mounted robots for the plastics industry, palletizing robots for the logistics sector and Foundry variants for foundry settings are demonstrating their flexibility in applications covering all areas of general industry.
Simple KR C4 controller
All KUKA robot types have something in common: their open architecture and the features of the KR C4 controller generation. In addition to robot, motion, sequence and process control, safety control has also been seamlessly integrated into the control system. The KR C4 thus not only ensures the simple implementation of dedicated monitoring functions; more importantly, the control technology ensures that the motion and velocity of the robot can be influenced safely. Furthermore, expanded software packages for a wide range of applications and customer requirements are also being presented. The machine tool industry now has the software packages mxAutomation and KUKA.CNC at its disposal, enabling the robot and machine tool to work together more efficiently as a system and simplifying production.
Small robots: two approaches – two technologies
Precision and speed are the defining characteristics of the new KR AGILUS small robot series.
