Also demonstrated will be the KR5 ARC in an innovative Arc Welding solution, in cooperation with tooling designed by UST Technologies. The KR5 ARC, sets a benchmark in welding robots. The compact design, low overall weight, and a reach of 1411mm allows the KR 5 ARC to excel even in the closest welding cell concepts. Welding with the KR5 ARC will be achieved by seamless integration with a Fronius welding power supply.
