R series Robots


The general-purpose R series Robots are setting the benchmark for all small to medium duty industrial robots. The compact design, along with industry leading speed, reach and work range make the R series Robots ideal for a wide range of applications throughout diverse industries.

Typical Applications:
• Assembly
• Material Handling
• Sealing / Dispensing
• Machine Tending
• Material Removal

Payload: 3kg – 80kg
Max. Reach: 620mm – 2100mm

The lightweight arm along with high-output, high-revolution motors provide industry leading acceleration and high-speed operation. The acceleration rate automatically adjusts to suit the payload and robot posture to deliver optimum performance and the shortest cycle times.

In addition to extending the robot’s maximum reach, the rotation range of each axis has also been increased. The extended motion range translates to a larger usable work area with minimal dead-space and greater flexibility.

The R series incorporates a double-seal construction on all axes and the electrical connections are water-resistant, offering an IP67 classification for the wrist and IP65 for the remaining axes. If a wash-down arm is required, the entire robot can be provided as IP67.

High-output motors, combined with a rigid arm construction, allow for superior wrist torque and load capacity.

Built-in pneumatic lines and internal wiring for sensors and solenoid valves are standard. Mounting pads and taps are provided to allow easy installation of additional cabling, tubing or equipment.

The slim arm design requires very little floor space. Multiple robots can be installed in “high-density” applications without impeding performance.

R 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.
