KUKA linear unit KL 100

The KUKA linear unit KL 100 is a self-contained, one-axis linear unit mounted on the floor, ceiling or wall. It is operated as the external axis of a robot and is thus controlled by the corresponding robot controller.

For the assembly of multiple electroplating racks, the robot is moving on a KL 100 linear unit.

Payload 100 kg
Number of axes 1
Repeatability +/- 0,02 mm
Mounting positions ground, blanket, wall
Speed 2,5 m/s
Protection class IP 65

Key features of linear unit KL 100

  • For KR AGILUS series robots
  • Up to 4 robots on one linear axis, mounted in different basic robot positions 
    • Robots can be installed in up to 8 different basic positions and make use of an additional tender carriage for application-specific equipment.
  • Mirrored design
    •  Use of mirrored motion programs.
  • FEM-optimized
    • High torsional stiffness on the basis of FEM analysis, also enabling use in high-accuracy continuous-path applications.
  • Integrated control 
    • Control of the linear unit is integrated as a mathematically coupled axis in the robot controller, dispensing with the need for an additional controller.
  • Internally installed energy supply chain for floor-mounted version
    • The energy supply chain can be installed internally in a highly compact manner up to a rated travel of 5500 mm.

Suitable for this application

  • Handling, loading and unloading
  • Inserting, mounting
  • Cutting machine tools
  • Other handling operations
  • Other applications
  • Handling for other machines
  • Plastics processing machines
  • Forming machine tools
  • Measuring, testing and inspectation
