Automated painting and coating

The automation of painting processes offers many advantages, from increased cost efficiency and quality to greater flexibility. Set yourself apart from your competitors and remain profitable at all times using a robotic painting system. 

Perfect finish with KUKA painting robots

Safety and efficiency guaranteed

KUKA robots impress with their intelligence, precision and speed and can be used in an extensive range of robotic automation tasks across a wide variety of different industries. The robots are optimized for the painting process for use in water-soluble spray paint applications and for powder applications. Explosions often occur when spraying with flammable aerosols, such as gases and mists; this can seriously impact production. Our painting robots are based on state-of-the-art robotic technology, thus making the robot systems explosion-proof and ATEX compliant, according to 3G/3B. They are continuously purged internally with air to prevent the accumulation of gas. This ensures maximum safety in your facility, avoiding deflagration or accumulation of toxic paint gases.

Painting made easy

Automated painting solution for general industry: Dürr and KUKA introduce jointly developed robot system.

Industry-leading painting quality, especially for painting small workpieces and complex geometries

For the optimal automation of the painting process, we offer KR AGILUS six-axis industrial robots, that excel with high axis speed, extreme maneuverability in confined spaces, and short cycle times. The motions of the robot arm are extremely precise and smooth. Despite their compact design, the KR AGILUS EX explosion-proof industrial robots have payload capacities of 6 kg and 10 kg, and are capable of carrying a wide range of different applicator paint guns for spray painting. The robot's reach of up to 1101.1 mm enables versatility in a variety of industries.

Automated high-gloss painting machine – the advantages

Explosion-proof and ATEX-compliant robots

KUKA painting robots comply with ATEX Directive 2014/34* and are 3G/3D compliant, making them ideal for use in zones 21 and 22, or in electrostatic confines. Robots comply with protection classification Ex II, thus ensuring safety in your production facility.
*These are the minimum requirements for improving the health and safety and protection of workers, potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.

Less paint required 

Automating the painting process can reduce the consumption of coating products by up to as much as 30% thanks to the utmost precision of the KUKA industrial robot.

Uniform paint application, reproducible results

Precise and smooth motions of the spray gun and consistent quality guaranteed by repeatability of 0.03 mm that is synonymous with KUKA robots.

Efficient drive

The internal motors can be optimally pressurized with sealing air, ensuring wear-free coating and a reduction in paint and dirt ingress providing an enhanced level of operational longevity that is required in a fast paced environment such as in paint shops.

Operations safeguarded despite shortage of skilled workers

Safeguarding of production through use of a robot painting system to take over tedious and monotonous tasks.

Cycle time optimization in series painting

KUKA painting robots achieve maximum repeatability in continuous operation and are optimized for highly repetitive processes, such as series painting.

Health and safety protection for employees

The wellbeing of employees is protected as they only have to supervise the robot arm and are no longer exposed to risk that are posed by toxic gases, or explosions.


KUKA robots are compatible with a wide range of different paint spray guns and accessories from your preferred manufacturers meaning you can match your choice of robot with your choice of end-of-arm tooling.
