"The Sixx robot family was designed for customers with applications requiring 6-axis functionality for long reach tasks," said Stuart Shepherd, president of KUKA Robotics Corporation. "This new tabletop model will give manufacturers a cleanroom robot capable of optimum acceleration and maximum working velocities."
Due to its small size, the KUKA KR5 Sixx CR cleanroom robot can be integrated easily without unnecessary space consumption and satisfies the numerous requirements of cleanroom applications. The new robot when combined with KUKA Robotics' user friendly PC-based control platform will give customers an extremely easy to use and easy to learn pick and place automation solution for the most extreme cleanroom requirements. The robot with a 650 mm reach and payload capacity up to 5 kg meets the appropriate ISO and DIN standards for clean room operation and is class 5 according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1 and class 100 according to US Federal Standard 209 E.
