It would be a shame if your brand new robot caused or was damaged by an explosion. Avoid such costly disasters and protect workers with explosion-proof KUKA robots.
When you have a work environment that's explosive (i.e. has flammable gases, vapors, or combustible dusts suspended in the air), and you are working with water-based paints, sealants, or hazardous products, the typical robot isn't sufficient.
In fact, it's extremely risky. KUKA has a robot that can work in these contexts without causing an explosion.
These robot models are carefully constructed to work in explosive atmospheres. Built with special motors and cables, KUKA's explosion-proof robots are pressurized and sealed. They are ATEX-compliant and useful for Group IIB, Category 3G and Temperature Class T3 settings.
