Krauss-Maffei adds robots.

Through its recent acquisition of Neureder AG, Krauss-Maffei in Germany (U.S. office in Florence, Ky.) now offers four types of servo robots. Top-entry NR Series linear traversing robots are sized for machines from 110 to 4000 tons. They are integrated with the K-M MC4 machine control and boast repeatability of 0.1 mm. CB series linear top-entry robots are not integrated with the machine control and are available for various brands of machines from 65 to 5400 tons. They have Bosch/Rexroth controls, Windows NT-based software, and repeatability of 0.01 to 0.04 mm.

Also available are CBH1 high-speed robots with a jointed arm. They are specialized for side entry and give extraction times of as little as 0.45 sec from tools with just 70 mm of opening stroke. They have non-integrated Bosch/Rexroth controls.

In addition, UP series six-axis, articulated-arm robots carry loads up to 363 lb and are typically used where secondary operations are required. Based on robots built by Motoman in Japan and Kulda in Germany, UP models are modified by K-M with special servo motors and Siemens control software. Tel: (606) 283-0200 * PT Direct: 327B0
