Robots are designed for welding and measuring

DTI Globalwatch : 21 October, 2006  (Technical Article)
Robots speed and accuracy will allow manufacturers to increases cost-effectiveness of a welding cell by reducing scrap in applications such as laser cutting, welding and measuring.
KUKA Robotics Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial robots, today announced it has extended its robot product offering with new robots for welding, cutting and measuring applications. The new robot model are designed for tasks requiring high speed accuracy including welding, cutting and measuring applications. The robots' speed and accuracy will allow manufacturers to increases cost-effectiveness of a welding cell by reducing scrap in applications such as laser cutting.

The robots have a payload capacity of up to 100kg and reaches up to 3000mm and despite their size and reach are extremely accurate a path repeatability of approximately 0.1mm.

'The new robots' accuracy and speed make them ideal for high precision tasks such as laser welding, laser cutting and measuring,' said Kevin Kozuszek, director of marketing for KUKA Robotics Corporation.

'Additionally, thanks to its modular design and the versatility of the KUKA controller they can be quickly reconfigured for use in other tasks such as adhesive application.' The new robots will be offered in three models.

The KUKA KR 100 HA robot is the basic model with a reach of 2600mm and payload capacity of 100kg.

The KUKA KR 100 L90 HA is an extended model having a reach of 2800mm, an additional arm extension of 200mm and a new payload capacity of 90kg.

Finally, the KUKA KR 100 L80 HA model has a reach of 3000mm, an additional arm extension of 400mm and a payload capacity of 80kg.

Core competencies are the development, production and sale of industrial robots, controllers, software and linear units The company's 5- and 6-axis robots range from 3kg to 570kg payloads, and 635mm to 3700mm reach, all controlled from a common PC based controller platform.

KUKA robots are utilized in a diverse range of industries including the appliance, automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, logistics, food, pharmaceutical, medical, foundry and plastics industries and in multiple applications including material handling, machine loading, assembly, packaging, palletizing, welding, bending, joining, and surface finishing.
