New Robotic Arc Welder and Robotic Loader

KUKA Robotics offers its latest in robotic welding with the debut of the new KR 5 Arc R1400. The KR 5 Arc R1400 has a compact design, low weight, speed, high repeatability and a reach of 1,400 mm. It is suited for close cell concepts. Accompanying the KR 5 arc R1400's space saving efforts is the utilization of the new small size KRC4 controller measuring 550 mm in width and 4,185 mm in height.

KUKA also offers its KR 6 R900 sixx, suited for loading blanks into a cutting station. The KUKA KR 16 can utilize an ESAB PowerCut 1300 PlasmArc cutting package to cut shapes. The KR 6 AGILUS robot can also move items into position for the KR5-2 arc HW to weld it.

The Swift Arc ML robotic cell is comprised of the ESAB Welding & Cutting Products Aristo U5000i power source, KUKA KR 6 900 robot and KR C4 Controller. This complete work cell is economically configured for education. It can be delivered ready for use; simply hook up the input power, gas and wire to begin welding. Another advanced robotic plasma cutting cell provides the flexibility to automatically cut or "cope" branch pipes, cut trunk pipes (with or without bevel), and cut to length, suited for job shops introducing robotics to their applications. It features a KR 16 HW and a KR C4 Controller.

The KR 10 R1100 AGILUS can be interfaced with a two-axis positioner and 20 kW QCW IPG laser doing laser drilling. The KR AGILUS KR 6 R700 can be configured for industrial technologies such as laser cutting, waterjet cutting, polishing and de-burring.
