QUANTEC series – a wide range of variety

KUKA Roboter GmbH is presenting its new KR QUANTEC robot series – the successor to the bestselling comp and 2000 series.

15 June 2010

With its extensive range of models, comprising 15 basic robot types with various mounting options, the KR QUANTEC series ensures that there is a perfectly suited robot for every customer-specific application. For the first time, a single robot family covers the entire high payload range from 90 to 300 kg with reaches from 2,500 to 3,100 mm. KR QUANTEC makes automation easier: with maximum flexibility in the system planning and design phase, reduced conception and design work and greater planning security.

Comapct and light

KR QUANTEC series robots are characterized by up to 160 kg less weight and 25% less volume. Reach and payload remain unchanged and the series thus leads the market with the highest power density. The KR QUANTEC series robots are the most compact in their class, reducing space requirements and opening up whole new fields of potential applications in production – even in confined spaces. They even enable compact cell layouts in the high payload range.

Fast and accurate

The lighter components of the KR QUANTEC series allow greater dynamic performance and even shorter cycle times, as well as being stiffer than before. The new robot series thus impresses with great precision and pose repeatability of +/- 0.06 mm.

Design

The robots of the KR QUANTEC series feature the customarily robust KUKA quality. The series has been designed with implementation of a concept based on common parts with just four motor and gear unit variants. All models have the same hole pattern for the mounting base, the same as that for the previous series, and an identical tool flange on the wrist. The KR QUANTEC series is thus 100% compatible with existing cell layouts based on the Series 2000. The design of the KR QUANTEC series is characterized by minimized disruptive contours and a compact wrist for accessibility even in confined spaces.

The Quantec series model range consists of the four following product lines:

  • KR QUANTEC ultra for payloads up to 300 kg
  • KR QUANTEC prime for payloads up to 240 kg in spot welding, etc.
  • KR QUANTEC extra as a versatile all-round robot for payloads up to 210 kg
  • KR QUANTEC pro up to 120 kg
