High payloads with the KL 5000
The KL 5000 linear unit is used for handling of heavy payloads up to 5 000 kg. Robots with a payload of 800 kg and reaches of almost 4 000 mm can be mounted on this axis.
Up to four robots can be moved on the carriages via the configurable linear axis, which is up to 31 meters long. In the case of the Flex variant, even third-party robots can be mounted on the axis.
Running smoothly – the new lubrication systems with automatic data acquisition
With KUKA.Lubricate, a software is available for the KL 5000 linear axis. It automatically records and evaluates the distances and operating times.
With the KUKA Lubricate Kit, it even goes a step further: lubrication is no longer applied manually to the track, but rather triggered by the software as needed. The linear axis is equipped with pumps that perform the automatic lubrication of the rack and the track via the four corner points of the carriage while the robots continue in operation. The amount of lubrication is calculated by the software based on the distances traveled.
