KR DELTA robot in Hygienic Design

High-speed robots in the hygienic machine variant for handling and picking of small parts in a range of industries including food, pharmaceuticals and electronics.

The delta robot: three-armed parallel robot

The delta robot is a high mounted apparatus with the motors fixed at the base and three pre-assembled linked arms below the robot, which allows high acceleration and a large range of motion, all while being precise in execution of pick and other applications.

Hygiene at a high level.
KUKA DELTA robots are designed for use in highly sensitive conditions.

Thanks to its stainless steel body, the DELTA robot is ideally equipped for hygienically sensitive areas, such as direct contact with food, medicines or electronic components.

Industrial robots are an essential element within today's factory environment, even more so within the factory of the future. The demand for industrial robots stems from the need for versatile, intelligent machines able to perform repetitive tasks cost effectively with a wide range of motion whilst maintaining quality consistencies and reduced cycle time. The delta robot satisfies these demands.

The robot's corrosion-resistant stainless steel shell is designed according to German LFGB and US FDA food standards and also meets European CE certification, American UL certification and German TÜV safety function certification. The robot is protected against dust and moisture according to IP 67 protection class and can therefore be cleaned under high pressure and with alkaline or acidic cleaning agents.

KUKA DELTA robots are perfectly suited for pick-and-place applications in the high-speed sector, including the food industry.  

Typical robotic applications include assembly and pick and place which, to satisfy today’s manufacturing demands require continuity, speed, and precision of execution as standard.

With its high speed and precision, DELTA robot kinematics are  especially suitable for sensitive industries such as food, electronics and pharmaceuticals. They are exceptionally fitted for pick and place applications.

First-class values for safe robotization and sustainable profitability

The parallel robot is controlled by KUKA's new KR C5 micro robot controller, which saves almost 35% energy compared to the previous generation, while requiring less space and offering greater safety. This also has an impact on performance; with a cycle time of up to 0.5 seconds, the combination of KR C5 micro and KR DELTA is perfectly suited to handling tasks, for example in the food industry. With encapsulated gears and ball joints made of self-lubricating material, the KR DELTA is particularly low-maintenance.

KR DELTA-Robots as a hygienic machine: design, functions, advantages

High flexibility 

Suitable for various fields of applications, within industries such as pharmaceuticals, electronics and other industries.

Flexible flange

The flange is suitable for mounting a wide variety of tools.

Large range of motion

The industrial robot operates reliably in a cylindrical work envelope with a height of 250 mm and a diameter of 1,200 mm.

High speed

Extremely short cycle times, of up to 0.5 seconds, are enabled.

Small footprint

The ceiling-mounted robot has an installation area of 350 mm in diameter. Ideal for manufacturers who require robotics automation that occupy little space.

Easy maintenance

With an encapsulated gearbox and ball joints made of self-lubricating material, the KR DELTA robot is particularly low-maintenance, allowing a continuation of throughput and productivity.
