Our champion goes digital: The new KR QUANTEC

The new generation of the all-round talent in the high payload category has been transformed into a highly-flexible, digitalized machine. The KR QUANTEC can be flexibly adapted to various production processes at the press of a button.

Strong performance: the new KR QUANTEC features greater performance, precision and speed than ever before

The KR QUANTEC combines the attributes of real champions.

Hardware becomes software  thanks to the add-on digital plug-in Motion Modes 

The KR QUANTEC is the world’s first industrial robot to have digital Motion Modes. The software add-ons can be activated easily on the robot controller, optimizing the performance of the robot for important motion sequences. Depending on the work step, the robot can switch to and from between the individual Motion Modes. This makes it a flexible production assistant.

  • Performance mode: impressively versatile and the right Motion Mode for the majority of tasks – from handling and spot welding to machining and loading/unloading.

  • Path mode: is used for continuous-path motion and increases the precision for both low and high path velocities – for example in adhesive bonding, measuring or laser applications.

  • Dynamic mode: the right choice when the objective is to reduce cycle times. Dynamic mode gives the KR QUANTEC greater speed and reduces cycle times by around 10%.

The world’s largest robot portfolio of the high payload category

Now available with payload capacities ranging from 120 to 300 kg and reaches from 2,700 to 3,900 mm, with many special variants, such as ceiling-mounted, foundry, shelf-mounted and press-linking versions. 

Top-class values for total cost of ownership (TCO): significant reduction of running costs

Fewer spare parts than the predecessor, low energy consumption, reduced training requirements and simplified commissioning result in permanently reduced running costs. Added to this is an innovative servicing and maintenance concept for optimal life cycle efficiency.

  • 50% fewer spare parts

    Faster exchange, higher availability
  • Low energy consumption

    10% less than comparable machines from competitors 

  • Low training requirements

    Use of service-proven KUKA technology
  • Simplified commissioning

    Faster mastering, improved engineering tool

Innovative maintenance concept for optimal life cycle efficiency

With the new KR QUANTEC, you benefit from the life cycle efficiency principle. The robot is designed in such a way that maintenance and repair times are greatly reduced, considerably longer service intervals are possible and even higher machine availability is ensured.
  • Mean Time Between Failures increased by 500%

    MTBF: 400,000 operating hours

  • Mean Time To Repair 75% faster

    MTTR: 0.25 operating hours

  • Mean Time To Maintenance 60% shorter

    MTTM: 4.83 operating hours

  • Extremely high technical availability


Technically unbeatable in all areas of production 

The sum of its innovative features makes the new KR QUANTEC the technological No. 1 in the high payload category. The capability of upgrading payload capacity in the field also makes it extremely flexible. These and other innovations make the new KR QUANTEC a sound investment in the future of your production


  • Increased axis velocity

    The new KR QUANTEC guarantees optimal cycle times due to improved drive technology
  • New oil and sealing technology

    The fully revised concept corresponds to the state of the art and is also compatible with maximum robot performance.
  • Optimized working range for more flexible operation

    The new KR QUANTEC can reach virtually any point in a cell, for example the working range has been greatly increased in the direction of axis 2.
  • Greater range of robot-specific options

    Supplementary stops, energy supply systems, peripheral equipment such as booster frames in different heights, specialized linear unit

Flexible cell and system planning

With its disruptive contours reduced by 10% through a more streamlined wrist and smaller footprint, the new KR QUANTEC simplifies engineering even in complex situations. Furthermore, the optimized disruptive contour of the innovative energy supply system also ensures easier simulation and more cost-effective cell planning. The considerably shortened stopping distances of the robots make a further contribution to compact cell and system design and enable flexibility in the planning and implementation of systems.

Optimal cell and system planning – with reduced disruptive contours and extremely small footprint. 

Optimal robot portfolio for even faster delivery times

Are you looking for an all-round talent that is suitable for tasks in virtually all branches of industry? If so, the new KR QUANTEC is the right choice. In the high payload category, the robot offers the largest portfolio on the market in terms of payload capacity and reach: from 120 to 300 kg and from 2,700 to 3,900 mm. The new generation of the KR QUANTEC is available in many special variants, such as ceiling-mounted, foundry, shelf-mounted or press-linking versions. The optimized portfolio results in faster delivery times.
