The KR CYBERTECH nano ARC optimizes maintenance and service


The KR CYBERTECH nano ARC is extremely flexible, fast and precise than its predecessors in continuous-path applications. The upgraded 50-millimeter KUKA hollow-wrist reduces main axis motion, allowing short cycle times combined with utmost precision in motion. It features a repeatability of 0.04 millimeters, even at high speeds. This makes the KR CYBERTECH nano ARC hollow-wrist robots predestined experts for applications requiring maximum precision and path accuracies – such as arc welding and applying adhesives or sealants.


The series is characterized by its long service life and the lowest maintenance requirements in the low payload category. The product reduces the total cost of ownership including, low operating cost due to maximum availability and reduced energy consumption compared to its predecessor. It also optimizes service and maintenance requirement. 


The hollow-wrist robot small footprint and diverse installation options are suitable for compact cells, complex tasks and challenging process chains. Additional flexibility is provided by the innovative “K-PIPE-ES” energy supply concept. Separation of the system and application cabling makes integration easier and the equipment of the energy supply system more flexible. Additional axes can be configuration more easily.


High path accuracy of industrial robots: the KR CYBERTECH nano series also features in-line wrist variants. 


Markus Hollfelder-Asam, Portfolio Manager, KUKA, said: “We have developed the series specifically for the latest KR C5 controller generation from KUKA, which taps the full potential of our new overall system. Integration of the KR CYBERTECH nano is easy for companies thanks to the standardized mounting surfaces for accessories and identical footprint to that of its predecessor.”


The product series also features – as standard – protection against dust and water under IP 54 for the hollow-wrist robots and even IP 65/67 (main axes/wrist axes) for the in-line wrist robots.


Markus Hollfelder-Asam added: “No matter what tasks you use the latest-generation KR CYBERTECH nano ARC for, it offers outstanding results right from the outset and can be optimally adapted using the flexible KUKA.Motion Modes.”
