KUKA KR 16 Arc HW (Hollow Wrist)

KUKA KR 16 Arc HW (Hollow Wrist)

KUKA KR 16 Arc HW (Hollow Wrist), 6-axis industrial robot, specialist in arc welding, with a payload of 16 kg and a reach of 1636 mm. It is characterized by its hollow wrist design with a 50mm opening that allows you to route the cables inside the protective arm, generating high reliability and repeatability, while improving the accessibility of components, optimizing productivity, and offline programming simplified.

KR C4 - Kuka's latest breakthrough

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.
