Unveiled in May 2007, the Kuka KR 1000 titan
defies limitation. The strength of this 6-axis heavyweight earned it a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
With a payload of 1000 kg and maximum reach of 3202mm, the KR 1000
can handle tasks that normally take two robots. Its work envelope
covers 78 cubic meters.
Nine motors, together generating as much power as a mid-sized car, run the KR 1000
. Not only did Kuka
employ a completely new
drive design for this model, but the steel frame can handle a static torque of 60,000 Nm (compare to a typical sports car's maximum torque of 600 Nm).
Hailed as the strongest robot in the field, the KR 1000
is ideal for heavy lifting applications that used to take multiple machines or cranes. The KR 1000
provides a powerful, high-tech solution for automotive, foundry
and building materials settings.
