A Kuka KR 240-2 Series 2000 KRC2 ED05 which has a payload of 240kg and a reach of 2700mm.
The Kuka KR 240 features a large load-bearing capacity, enabling it to carry heavy tooling and parts quickly with smooth motions. The KR 240 KRC2 robot is ideal for cost-effective manufacturing concepts. The long 2700 mm reach of the KR 240 KRC2 arm provides it with enough versatility to handle complex tasks. The series 2000 Kuka arms can be easily upgraded, allowing for longer use and more reliability.
The KUKA KR 240 S2000 family of robots is the update of one of the most popular
industrial robot types. BMW, Volkswagen Audi Group, Daimler and many more use
them. It can be used in a wide range of applications, from palletizing to milling,
welding, de-burring and machine tending.
The S2000 uses a
mechanical balance spring that is simpler and lower maintenance than a gas
spring. The arm has been designed to allow easy servicing and better routing of
controller, like the KRC1, is PC based and runs windows. Because of this it has
a huge amount of free memory and has great connectivity, better than a
comparable ABB controller for example. Physically the KRC2 controller is very
compact and can be stacked. The cables from Controller to robot are 10m long.
The controller has both CD rom and floppy disc drives. The KRC2 has built in 16
inputs and 16 outputs of up to 100mA and a further 4 outputs at up to 2A these
are on the X11 connector along with the safety circuit connections. The I/O can
be easily expanded using devicenet units up to a total of 1024 inputs and 1024
outputs. Fibre optic Interbus is available as an option.
The KCP teach pendant
as a very large colour screen and a unique 6-axis joystick, although many
prefer to simply use the buttons to control the axis. The good screen means
that the pendant can be used as a good alternative to a separate HMI.
as programming via the pendant programs can be written or edited using wordpad
or ultraedit. For full offline programming and simulation Kuka have their
Simpro software available.
