King of the bots

Kuka Robotics Corp., Clinton Township, Mich., is touting its six-axis KR 1000 Titan robot with a payload capacity of 1,000 kg and a 3,200-mm reach as the world's largest and strongest.

A total of nine motors deliver the power of a midsized car. In axes 1 and 3, two motors feed into a single gear unit. Axis 2 is powered by two motors, each with its own gear unit. The Titan, which can withstand a static torque of 60,000 Nm, is intended for use in the building materials, automotive, and foundry industries.
