KUKA Robot Video of Automotive Spot Welding
Spot welding continues to be a robot application mainstay. Here, KUKA Robots – one of the major brands seen at Automate 2011 – shows how this traditional application still matters today. Now they have a new arc welding robot, the KR 5 ARC HW (Hollow Wrist) that takes the rugged design of through-the-wrist cabling to a new level. The 50 mm opening in the arm and wrist, for example, allows the arc welding dress package to be routed in the protective interior of the arm.
