Compact industrial robot, great capacity of integration and of the reduced areas of interference, reaches high speeds with greater speed and precision. It offers great versatility in the compatible power supply and greater flexibility of assembly in floor, wall, ceiling and angle. Ideal for applications such as assembly, palletizing and welding with protective gas, among others, with a quiet and agile KRC4 controller in its start-up and Teach pendant KUKA smartPAD.

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.
