Kuka

Kuka Robotics is a German based company that has gained a fantastic reputation for innovation and product development. They were the first major robot company to use a Microsoft windows based programming interface. They were also the first company to make extensive use of Aluminium in robot arm design making Kuka manipulators among the lightest and fastest available. They also introduced a horizontal balancing spring on axis 2 before the other main manufacturers, a design that has now been widely adopted.

The Kuka company was founded in 1898 and stands for Keller und Knappish, Augsberg. By 1973 they developed their own industrial robot that was both a full six axis robot and was entirely electromechanically driven.The 1980’s saw substantial expansion of the Kuka brand and in 1989 Kuka released and entirely new range of industrial robots which used brushless ac motors which ranged from 8kg to 240kg capacity. These robots had the motors at the back of the axis 3 arm allowing a narrow wrist design. In 1996 the Windows based KRC1 controller was released. The teach pendant uses a very large colour touch-screen with excellent functionality and is fitted with a multi axis “mouse” which can be used to control robot movement. The KRC1 and the subsequent KRC2 controller have gradually been improved and upgraded since their release as hardware and software technology improved.
