The new KR IONTEC from KUKA: a robot for any task in the 30 to 70kg payload category

15 January 2020

The KR IONTEC can be used in any installation position – on the floor, on the wall or inclined. The option of converting the payload capacity of the installed robot from 30 to up to 70kg also makes it extremely flexible.

Furthermore, with a maximum reach of 3,100mm, the new KR IONTEC has the largest work envelope in its class. The reduced space requirements of the robot, with a 30 percent smaller footprint and a 10 percent more streamlined disruptive contour, additionally enable a more compact cell design.

Best values for total cost of ownership (TCO)

The KR IONTEC features the lowest maintenance requirements in its class. Due to the reduced energy consumption, resulting from the improved drive technology and decreased weight of the robot, the running costs are also lower. The new KR IONTEC excels in terms of TCO and life cycle efficiency. Technical availability is over 99 percent and the mean time between failures is around 400,000 hours of operation.

Ready for the production world of the future

The KR IONTEC is ready to use in both conventional and digital production worlds and is equipped with various Motion Modes. These software add-ons can be used to adapt the robot flexibly to different production processes at the press of a button: Performance Mode ensures high performance, dynamics and efficiency as standard. Path Mode enables exact continuous-path motion with absolute accuracy and precision. Dynamic Mode can be used to minimize cycle times. KR IONTEC is available for ordering as of January 2020. Delivery of the first models is scheduled for April.
