Combined 6 axis and Linear Robot

Clinton Township, Michigan — KUKA Robotics Corporation introduced the new KUKA Jet robot, a 6 axis robot mounted on a linear unit.

The 6 axis robot is mounted either upside down or sideways on the linear rail and is available in four configurations with different reaches and maximum payloads from 30 to 60 kg.

The combination of linear motion and 6-axis handling will allow the robot arms to work on multiple work-stations with an easy traverse between them. Or it can be used to help maneuver into hard to reach work-stations.

While this is not a robot that walks around the factory, it is another step in that direction.
