Robot Boosts Electronics Production

KUKA’s KR 6 SCARA robot offers reach/radius options of 500 mm and 700 mm, and Z-axis stroke of 200 mm. Faster and lighter than smaller 6-axis models, it offers manufacturers ease of use while expediting production speed.

Posted: April 10, 2021

The KR 6 is backed by KUKA’s expert service and support for training, complete system engineering and simulation, readily available spare parts, and robot refurbishment.
For maximum acceleration and velocity, KUKA’s optimal motion planning software calculates and sets the correct motion path to ensure that all the robot’s axes can finish moving simultaneously at the desired point in space.

The 4-axis KR 6 SCARA robot from KUKA Robotics Corp.’s (Sterling Heights, MI) meets the growing automation needs of the electronics industry, among others, by providing a 6-kg payload and positions at a repeatability of +/- .02 mm. It’s also faster and lighter than traditional smaller 6-axis robots, giving manufacturers ease of use and significant increases in production speed.

It offers reach/radius options of 500 mm and 700 mm, and Z-axis stroke of 200 mm.

For maximum acceleration and velocity, KUKA’s optimal motion planning software calculates and sets the correct motion path to ensure that all the robot’s axes can finish moving simultaneously at the desired point in space. In electronics applications, there is little need for changes in part orientation, so necessary robot moves are up, down and inserting – making the KR 6 a natural.

In addition to the KR 6 robot, the system includes a KUKA smartPAD teach pendant, robot controller and motor, and data cables.

The KR 6 is backed by KUKA’s expert service and support for training, complete system engineering and simulation, readily available spare parts, and robot refurbishment, all of which are easily accessible through the my.KUKA.com site. KUKA maintains corporate offices and production operations, along with integration partner facilities conveniently located throughout North America to provide responsive customer service and support.
