KR IONTEC: a robot for a wide variety of applications in the medium payload category

Whether on the floor, on the wall or inclined, the KR IONTEC combines compact design with the largest working envelope in its class for optimal use of space with a small footprint. Equipped with a waterproof and dustproof in-line wrist and protected motors, the robot is suitable for almost every area of application. A Foundry option also enables use in extremely hot environments with an expanded temperature range from 0° to 55°C.

An investment in the future of your production: highest output with a low total cost of ownership (TCO) and high life cycle efficiency

Low investment costs for a unique variety of applications – the KR IONTEC convinces in the classical as well as the digital worlds of production through top performance.

Sustainably cost-efficient

With low energy consumption, low operating costs and low maintenance, the KR IONTEC significantly reduces your costs.

Maximum flexibility 

Thanks to its flexible installation position and convertible payload capacity, the KR IONTEC is suitable for various applications and can be adapted to specific requirements.

Maximum availability

The KR IONTEC has a technical availability of 99.999% with a mean time between failures of 400,000 hours.

Optimized design 

Thanks to its streamlined design, the KR IONTEC allows for compact cells with a small footprint.

Advantages of the KR IONTEC

Adaptable to processes at the push of a button

Thanks to digital Motion Modes, you can adapt the performance of the robot to various processes or substeps depending on the need for higher precision or speed.

Lowest maintenance requirements

With KR IONTEC, an oil change is only required every 20,000 operating hours. The robot also has an in-line wrist design without belts.

Flexible cell and system planning

The efficient use of the work area, the low space requirement due to a small footprint and the streamlined disruptive contour enable a compact cell design.

Low storage costs

The robot requires 50 percent fewer spare parts than its predecessor model. Spare parts availability for 25 years guarantees long-term planning reliability.

Convertible payload capacity

The payload capacity of the KR IONTEC can also be subsequently adjusted on a robot already installed – allowing for maximum flexibility in your production.

Simplified commissioning 

An optimized engineering tool and low training requirements using proven KUKA technology simplify start-up for you.

Optimized energy supply system

An A1 hollow shaft with a diameter of 119 mm ensures easy energy supply with a minimal footprint.

ESD protected

The robot is protected as standard against uncontrolled electrostatic charging or discharging and is thus equipped for the safe handling of sensitive electronic components.

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.
