K series (5-20 kg Wrist Payload)
EXPLOSION-PROOF PAINTING ROBOTS
The K series painting robots combine high operational performance with easy system integration. With five basic types of explosion-proof models available, Kawasaki has a robot that will suit any robotic painting application, from a one robot paint cell to complete multi-robot integrated finishing systems. Hollow wrist versions of the robots can be fitted with internal hoses to prevent paint mist from adhering to tubes and cables, minimizing the risk of contaminants in the paint finish. Kawasaki also offers a painting specific control panel to enhance the ease of system building and interfacing with peripheral equipment such as robot traveling unit, workpiece transfer unit, rotation unit, and other devices.
_HOLLOW WRIST ARMS
Hollow wrist versions of the K series robot arms can be fitted with internal hoses to minimize overspray that adheres to the piping, reducing the risk of contaminants in the paint finish. The inner diameter of the hollow wrist is 70 mm.
_EASY SYSTEM INTEGRATION
Kawasaki Robotics also offers a control panel to enhance the ease of system building and interfacing with peripheral equipment such as robot traveling unit, workpiece transfer unit, rotation unit, and other devices. The control panel is an intuitive graphical interface that allows users to centrally operate and control all components of the robotic finishing system.
K series robots can be programmed in two ways, via the robot teach pendant or a computer, and using one of the two Kawasaki’s programming methodologies, Block Step or AS Language. The Block Step programming method eliminates time consuming program teaching with auto-path generating software. The powerful AS Language provides ultimate flexibility via any word processor text file and enables the programmer to create advanced logic, manipulate program locations, integrate peripheral components and control the application process.
_PAINT SERVO PERIPHERALS
Kawasaki has developed servo controlled part positioning products that can be readily incorporated into a Kawasaki painting system. Part positioning products that vary in motion as well as work piece capacity are available. Each of these products is driven by servo motors that are controlled as external axes by the robot controller. The Kawasaki paint servo peripherals are all intrinsically safe and pressurized, suitable for a paint booth.
