KUKA Kr5 arc

Six axis industrial robot originally conceived for arc welding purposes. High accuracy and speed are outstanding features of this robot

As this high speed industrial robot has a standard wrist as opposed to the hollow wrist, it can also perfectly be used for handling applications which require short cycle times and high accuracy.

Equipped with the KR C2 Ed2005 controller.

KR C2 edition2005 features

The controller KR C2 edition2005 (ed05) is assembled in accordance with your individual requirements, using standard PC components and drive technology that has proved its worth in the field of automation. This guarantees you high reliability and continuous access to the benefits of cutting-edge technology.
For example, it is possible to integrate up to two external axes in the basic cabinet. In conjunction with a top-mounted cabinet, as many as six external axes can be controlled.

The controller stands out on account of its simple maintenance, good accessibility, modular structure and service-friendly design, which allows components to be exchanged quickly and easily. A wide range of diagnostic and troubleshooting functions, such as remote servicing via the Internet, together with numerous expansion options and a comprehensive safety concept round out the spectrum of services offered for the KR C2 edition2005, giving you everything you need to optimize your production.
