Virtually unlimited potential for small robots in the electronics industry
In small automation cells, in production environments with limited space, for application scenarios with high demands – the new KR 4 AGILUSsmall robot from KUKA delivers. The potential for automated production processes is virtually unlimited with the new model in the payload category up to 4 kg – not only in theelectronics industry, but also in many other sectors. The robot can be installed in any position, for example: on the floor, wall or ceiling, at any angle.
More functions and possibilities for robot-based automation in electronics manufacturing
The robot moves loads of up to 4 kg quickly and safely. With its increased reach of 600 mm, it has even more application options – compared to previous generations, the work envelope has been expanded by almost 40 percent.At the same time, it delivers utmost precision in a minimum of space. The KR 4 AGILUS demonstrates its power in terms of repeatability and cycle times: with a maximum deviation of 0.02 mm per work step and a cycle time of less than 0.4 seconds (in the small Adept cycle), the robot leads the field. Where maintenance requirements are concerned, it takes a more restrained approach, reaching its maximum service life with a minimal maintenance effort.
We are supplying a new small robot in the 4 kg class that is a real ‘big hitter’, ideally suited for a broad spectrum of automation tasks – both in the electronics industry and in many other sectors.
Thanks to a diverse range of interfaces, numerous peripheral devices can be connected to the KR 4 AGILUS.
The new KR 4 AGILUS can handle almost any environment
Endowed with protection rating IP40, the KR 4 AGILUS is ideally equipped, being well within its comfort zone at temperatures between 0 and 55 degrees, for example. Its reliability has been tested by TÜV; the European CE mark and, among others, the American UL certification mark attest to dependable quality. Users of the KR 4 AGILUS need not even worry about sensitive components: being protected against uncontrolled electrostatic charging and discharging (ESD), it is also ideally equipped for sensitive tasks.
Latest control technology from KUKA
“With the KR 4 AGILUS, we are not just closing a gap in KUKA’s portfolio,” says Markus Hollfelder-Asam, portfolio manager at KUKA. “We are supplying a new small robot in the 4 kg class that is a real ‘big hitter’, ideally suited for a broad spectrum of automation tasks – both in the electronics industry and in many other sectors.” Thanks to a diverse range of interfaces, numerous peripheral devices can be connected to the KR 4 AGILUS, expanding the application potential. And the best part? The small robot features the latest control technology from KUKA, the KR C5 micro with the latest KSS 8.7 system software, with which tasks can be controlled and solved even more efficiently.
