Redefining flexibility throughout its lifecycle, the KR IONTEC from KUKA Robotics Corp. (Carpentersville, IL) combines optimized performance with an 83-to-98-inch (2,100-to-2,500-mm) reach and the largest work envelope in the medium-payload class. The dynamic robot can be mounted in any installation position and features a convertible payload capacity that can be modified to adapt to changing application requirements after installation.
With low energy consumption, operating costs and maintenance, the robot provides sustainable cost efficiency and maximum availability, with a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 400,000 hours. Fully digitalized Motion Modes enable the robot to adapt to the unique precision and speed needs of each production process. Small footprint and streamlined disruptive contours al
low for maximum throughput in even the smallest cell designs.
The my.KUKA online service platform will give system integrators and robot users access to information on products and services at any time and from any device. Everyone from designers to programmers and service personnel can use the system’s user-friendly interface to quickly get the latest specifications and details needed to support their robot system. After registering their KUKA assets online, they’ll be able to open and track the status of all incidence cases, find system information, manage service licenses, and sign up for KUKA College courses.
