KUKA Shelf-Mounted Robots: K Series

Jul 20, 2010

​The KUKA shelf mounted robot K series are ready to decrease cycle times and increase the productivity of your work space. They can tackle material handling, coating, machine tending, and more bringing a versatile solution to manufacturers. The KUKA K robot series can handle payloads up to 210 kg with specially enhanced gears, motors, and servo drives.


They may be shelf-mount­ed robots, but don’t expect the KUKA K series to just sit there. These robots are pre­pared to take charge, slash cycle times, and boost pro­duc­tiv­i­ty. From spot weld­ing to mate­r­i­al han­dling, coat­ing to machine tend­ing, this line of robots offers pow­er­ful, ver­sa­tile solutions.

Engi­neered for Strength

The KUKA K robot series can han­dle larg­er pay­loads up to 210kg, thanks to spe­cial­ly enhanced gears, motors, and ser­vo drives.

Designed for Dexterity 

Even with their pow­er­ful build, these shelf-mount­ed robots pro­vide excep­tion­al part acces­si­bil­i­ty and a low weight. This makes them the per­fect match for machine tend­ing appli­ca­tions. Because they are light­weight, K type robots can be installed direct­ly on top of machines — sav­ing space. While not as extreme as the KS shelf-mount­ed robots, K type robots do fea­ture a for­ward posi­tioned sec­ond axis and low­er base. This too allows for bet­ter dexterity.

Quite a Few to Choose From

KUKA K robots are avail­able in 31 dif­fer­ent ver­sions with three stan­dard mod­els: the KR 150 K, KR180 K, and KR 210 K. The vast prod­uct line includes long reach, clean­room, and foundry mod­els. Pay­loads range from 100 to 210kg and reach from 3,100mm to 3,900mm.
