[+] DEEP REACH LIGHT. KUKA shelf-mounted robots stand out for their low weight. They can be installed directly on
machines with minimum effort, while saving space.

DEEP REACH. KUKA shelf-mounted robots are designed for an especially large downward reach, optimum
access the workspace from above. Due to their low height, they require little space above the
robot base.

FAST. Lightweight, KUKA shelf-mounted robots achieve high dynamic performance and very short cycle
times. Enabling higher productivity and cost-effectiveness with rapid payback.

RELIABLE PLANNING. Each KUKA robot family shares an identical mounting base hole pattern. This allows
different shelf-mounted robots to be used on machines of different sizes without any additional planning
measures.

KR C4
The control system of the future

MORE POWERFUL, SAFER, MORE FLEXIBLE, AND MORE INTELLIGENT. The KR C4 has been created for the automation of today
and tomorrow. Thanks to its open architecture it is a master of simple integration. It can communicate in a wide range of
programming languages and is ideally suited to the control of KUKA manipulators. It can carry out a vast range of tasks,
be used for robots of all payload categories, and control entire production lines. With the KR C4 all integrated controllers,
SafetyControl, RobotControl, MotionControl, and LogicControl have a joint database and infrastructure for maximum
performance, scalability, and flexibility.

KUKA smartPAD Making robot operation really easy

TOUCH SCREEN. GRAPHICS SUPPORT. FLEXIBLE INTERACTION. The more diverse the robots abilities become, the greater
the importance of intuitive user interfaces for their operation. The new KUKA smartPAD brilliantly demonstrates on a
large antireflection touch screen just how simple it can be. Intelligent, interactive dialogs provide the user with those
operator control elements that are currently required. This makes work easier, faster, more efficient, and simply smarter
