The six-axis Jet Robot from Kuka Robotics is mounted on a linear unit and is designed for customers with applications that entail long reach tasks. The robot is mounted either upside down or sideways on the linear rail depending on the application need and is available in four configurations with different reaches and working ranges.
Engineered for manufacturers with long-distance application needs, the unit is said to combine the speed of a linear axis and the flexibility of a six-axis robot. It is said to be ideal for handling tasks such as injection molding, die casting, machine tool manufacturing, and logistics.
The unit’s enhanced maneuverability is said to allow machines to be tended through narrow openings and enables parts to be precisely positioned, even within the machine, and allows parts to be withdrawn from the machine in a longitudinal direction. This makes it possible to serve a number of machines in a row. Additionally, the installation can be configured to allow several machines to be tended by one combination. The robot is available in four configurations with different reaches and working ranges with payloads ranging from 30 kg to 60 kg. www.kukarobotics.com
