KUKA linear unit KL 1000-2

The KL 1000-2 is a self-contained, floor-mounted KUKA linear unit. It is operated as the external axis of a robot. Control is thus executed by the appropriate robot controller.

Features and advantages of the KL 1000-2

  • Powerful:
    The KL 1000-2 comes in an additional high-speed variant for tasks requiring extreme speed and short cycle times.
  • Flexible:
    Long travel extends the workspace by several times the reach of the robot. The linear units function as external axes, thus dispensing with the need for an additional controller.
  • Versatile:
    Floor-mounted and ceiling-mounted variants are available, as is a protective cover for keeping out dirt during tasks in harsh environments.
  • Positionally accurate:
    Up to four robots can be operated on one linear axis. Multiple robot positions on the linear axis allow optimal adaptation to existing requirements and workspaces.
  • Productive:
    Moving workpieces or tools with additional carriages, driven or non-driven (tender carriages) helps to shorten cycle times.
  • Specially for medium payloads:
    The KL 1000-2 linear unit is suitable for robots with a payload from 30 to 60 kg.
