KUKA KR3 Injection Molding Robot

Jul 22, 2013

The KUKA KR3 injection molding robot is a 6 axis robot with multiple mounting options. This helps to increase the flexibility and versatility on your production line. It is designed for light payload applications and to provide quick and precise movements.


Just like a kid mak­ing a Kool-Aid pop­si­cle by let­ting the Kool-Aid con­form to the shape of the tray, injec­tion mold­ing pro­duces parts by inject­ing mate­r­i­al into a mold. It is a com­mon man­u­fac­tur­ing process involv­ing a vari­ety of mate­r­i­al types. The KUKA KR3 robot auto­mat­ed the injec­tion mold­ing process in a cell for a com­pe­ti­tion at Ohio North­ern Uni­ver­si­ty in 2007. Not only did the KUKA KR3 win the Gold award in its divi­sion, but it also was award­ed the top hon­or of 2007 Robot of the Year.

At the ONU com­pe­ti­tion, the KUKA KR3 processed pok­er chips from raw mate­ri­als with­in the cell, and labeled the chips with ONU” before pass­ing them out to impressed bystanders. The KR3 is one of sev­en robots that KUKA has pro­vid­ed to ONU’s Robot­ics Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­ter of Excellence.

The KUKA KR3 is a 6‑axis robot that has mul­ti­ple mount­ing options: on the floor, on a table, or even on the ceil­ing. 6‑axis robots’ lat­er­al move­ments are ide­al for unload­ing parts from an injec­tion mold­ing machine due to their flex­i­bil­i­ty. It has a 3kg pay­load and a 635 mm reach. It is designed for light pay­load appli­ca­tions such as mate­r­i­al han­dling, dis­pens­ing, machine load­ing, and machine tend­ing. It is designed to make quick, accu­rate movements.

The KR3 is com­pat­i­ble with KUKA. Sim Proc soft­ware, an offline pro­gram­ming tool for sim­u­la­tion analy­sis and pro­gram­ming gen­er­a­tion. Oth­er impor­tant KUKA injec­tion mold­ing robot mod­els are the KR 150110, KR 125, and KR 30.
