»KR 5 arc: The veRsATile RoboT wiTh The lonGesT seRvice life
Arc welding is one of your major applications? But processes such as brazing, gluing or handling also play a significant role in your operations? Then the KR 5 arc is your perfect choice: with its payload of 5 kg, this robot is not only ideally suited to arc welding, but can alsobe used for many other applications thanks to its standard wrist and overload-tolerant wrist axes. What’s more, the KR 5 arc boasts the longest service life in its class: with 40,000 hours of guaranteed production and maintenance intervals of over 20,000 hours, this robot sets the very highest standards. And the use of low-viscosity lubricants – oil instead of grease – makes servicing simpler thanever before. The advantages: a high degree of planning reliability and security of investment.

Increase your output: the combination of powerful motors, optimized gear ratios and a weight of only 127 kg gives the KR 5 arc a very high dynamic performance and thus significantly greater production capacity. Added to this:automated mastering with an electronic measuring tool ensures rapid start-up availability and highly accurate referencing. The advantages: greater productivity and greater availability.
Utmost precision ensures maximum process quality: the KR 5 arc excels with its high-stiffness structure, which enables it to follow exactly the programmed path. A further plus point is its machine data, whichare optimized for continuous-path applications. In combination with a robust mechanical design and highprecision gear units, this results in a repeatability of less than 2463 ± 0.04 mm. The advantages: optimum process results and C fewer rejects.

Ideal for space-saving system concepts: thanks to its compact dimensions and reduced interference contours, the KR 5 arc is able to operate in the most confined spaces. This robot type is also highly flexible due to a wide range of mounting options – on the floor, on the ceiling or on a linear unit. And the KUKA Posiflexpositioner system ensures fast, precise positioning of the workpieces to be processed. The advantages: reduced space requirements and increased flexibility.
KUKA offers you a comprehensive range of software: from ready-made application software for the most common applications to simulation programs for planning robot cells and Safe Robot Technology for monitoring safety zones. And for preciselycoordinated teamwork with several robots, we offer the RoboTeam application package. The advantages: maximum scope and maximum safety.
