KR 500 Fortec industrial robot powerful and efficient thanks to the advanced technology of KUKA. Has a variety of versions for different heavy duty applications. In the Machine-Tooling version it is perfect for milling and as a variant Foundry, it is ideal for the foundry industry. Is characterized by its precision in the manipulation of heavy elements, minimum maintenance and low costs.

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.
