New KUKA Robot: KR 3 AGILUS Maximum performance in minimum space

Great advances often start with small steps - in manufacturing cells measuring only 600 Ă— 600 mm. Here, the KR 3 AGILUS is in its element. Particularly in the case of small parts and products which must be produced in a minimum of space. KUKA expertise, concentrated into the smallest of spaces, is setting new standards for the 3-kg class. The lightweight robot masters various tasks with agility, dynamism and maximum precision, leading to high flexibility in production - even when it comes to extremely narrow spaces.
