Two new robot families

Article-Two new robot families

A new family of high-speed, long-reach, four-axis Scara robots has been introduced by Kuka (Clinton Township, MI). Featuring user-friendly PC-based controls, the new, compact KR5 Scara line includes 350- and 550-mm-reach models capable of handling payloads up to 5 kg (11 lb). They are lightweight and built for speed.

Kuka also introduced its new PC-controlled KR5 Sixx Series, a six-axis family of robots for long-reach applications requiring six-axis functionality, like pick-and-place and assembly. Also built for handling up to 11-lb payloads, 650- and 850-mm-reach models are available.?CK
