Higher, faster, further : KUKA makes things easy for you – with the most extensive range of palletizing robots in the world. A total of eleven models are available for your palletizing, order picking and handling tasks: with payloads from 40 to 1,300 kg and reaches from 1,991 to 3,600 mm. This unique comprehensiveness gives you the flexibility to use the robot that is perfectly dimensioned for your requirements.
For individual models, various options are available: different arm extensions and the use of H1 oil approved for applications in the food industry. You can also decisively expand the work envelope of any model by mounting it on a KUKA linear unit. A further decisive factor: you benefit from top quality and shorter cycle
times. The advantages : a high degree of planning reliability and security of investment.

Extremely fast – Extremely long-range

Increase your palletizing output : with an impressive working speed of 56 cycles per minute, the KR 40 PA is the fastest robot in its class. And as if that were not enough, its optimized 4-axis kinematic system also gives it the largest work envelope that’s available on the market: with a reach of up to 2,091 mm and a stacking height of up to 1.8 m. The advantages : shorter cycle times and greater productivity.

Extremely light – Extremely reliable

Thanks to the use of carbon-fiber-reinforced components, the KR 40 PA scores in more ways than one : firstly, this reduces the mass that has to be moved, thereby significantly increasing performance and reducing energy consumption. Secondly, the usual high stiffness is maintained, guaranteeing reliable operation for every requirement. The advantages : greater performance and lower energy consumption.

Extremely clever – Extremely well-designed

Save on costs, not on quality : the KR 40 PA offers an integrated energy supply system for air and control lines, together with a Multibus line for various bus systems. For most applications, this means that a cost-intensive additional dress package is not even necessary. And you also benefit from maximum availability and operation without interference contours. The advantages : optimal availability and effective cost savings.

Extremely simple – Extremely versatile

KUKA has the right software package for your palletizing tasks : for example, KUKA.Pallet Pro for planning and controlling cells, or KUKA.GripperTech for simple gripper programming. For offline simulations and cycle time optimization we offer the
program KUKA.Sim. Programming is also made easy by the intuitive user interface and clear visualization. The advantages : maximum ease of operation and rapid commissioning.
