KUKA KR 16-3 S

Six axis low payload industrial robot. Fast and accurate robot suitable for general handling, arc welding and machining operations which require short time cycles. Facelift of the popular KR 16 which has developed into the KR 16-3 and KR 16-2 models with the lastest KRC4 controller. 

KR C4 - Newest Kuka controller

More powerful, safer, more flexible, and above all more intelligent. The revolutionary concept of the KR C4 provides a firm foundation for the automation of tomorrow. It reduces costs in automation for integration, maintenance and servicing. The long-term efficiency and flexibility of the systems are increased at the same time. For this reason, KUKA has developed a new ground-breaking, clearly-structured system architecture that concentrates on open and powerful data standards. In this architecture, all integrated controllers – from SafetyControl, RobotControl, and MotionControl to LogicControl and ProcessControl – have a joint database and infrastructure which they use and share intelligently.
