KR SCARA robot


Strong, fast, highly efficient. Whether small parts assembly, material handling or testing - the ultra-compact KR SCARA robots deliver maximum efficiency and economy right from the start. With a variety of integrated media supply systems, they can handle almost any task out of the box.

What does SCARA mean and what makes this robot type special?

SCARA is an acronym and stands for Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm, it is an industrial robot with 4 axes. It consists of a serial mechanism with rotational joints in the first two axes. The two remaining axes are combined and allow both rotation and linear movement in Z-axis. The SCARA works much faster compared to other 6-axis robots and at the same time the programming of the arm is very simple.
