Many KUKA customers who already successfully use in-line wrist robots from the KR CYBERTECH nano family wanted a system that worked directly with power from a wall outlet. Beginning in April 2022, the new KR CYBERTECH nano generation will run on the KR C5 micro robot controller for small robots.

Transformerless flexible robot solution
The KR CYBERTECH nano family already is in high demand in the electronics industry, and also offers solutions for other sectors – for example, the food industry.
“The demand for flexible robot solutions for the low payload category from 6 to 10 kg without a transformer is growing,” noted Markus Hollfelder-Asam, Portfolio Manager at KUKA. “With the KR C5 micro, a normal 220/230-volt socket is suitable for most target applications. This provides greater reliability and saves effort and money – for example, limiting infrastructure changes that otherwise would be necessary.”
Precise in any position
Thanks to its streamlined design and compact connection panel, the KR CYBERTECH nano requires less floor space and works in confined cells. The KR C5 micro controller also has reduced space requirements, with a 70% smaller design, a footprint more than 50% smaller than the KR C4 compact and a weight of only 9 kg, which allows for a wide range of installation possibilities. “The KR CYBERTECH nano fits into any installation position – such as floor, ceiling and wall – and does so at any angle,” explained Hollfelder-Asam. “The controller follows suit, allowing various cabinet, rack and stand-alone installation positions – with up to six different installation positions possible with the KR C5 micro.”
