The KR 500 FORTEC is proud to seamlessly offer great amounts of strength to complete a variety of heavy duty tasks. It's new streamlined design can easily tackle a variety of heavy duty tasks, ranging from cutting, to assembly, to material handling, to spot welding! The KR 500 FORTEC has proven technology, paired with the KR C4, to help achieve even greater versatility. Additionally, it provides a larger work envelope and length of the reference load center distances and the same hole patterns for mounting to help ease the integration into existing cell layouts. 

There are a few variants of the KR 500 to enable greater flexibility for the range of heavy duty tasks it can complete.  Most are also available as a found-version, if necessary. 

The KR 500 R2830 is the standard model; it has a 500 kg payload and 2826 mm reach. 

The KR 420 R3080 has a 420 kg payload and up to 3076 mm reach.

The KR 340 R3330 can tackle up to 340 kg and handle a reach of 3326 mm. 

The KR 500 R2830 MT (Machine Tooling) robot variant is used for heavy-duty milling applications; it can be used as a machine tool with an integrated milling spindle. It has a 500 kg payload and 2826 mm reach. 

The KR 480 R3330 MT is just like the aforementioned version, but with a 480 kg payload and a longer reach of  3326 mm.
