|KUKA Robotics Introduces Family of Clean Room Robots for Semiconductor
Clinton Township, Michigan — KUKA Robotics Corporation today announced the
introduction of a family of clean room robots designed for semiconductor manufacturing, test and handling
applications. The robots are based on KUKA Robotics' market leading industrial robot designs and are designed for
wafer and integrated circuit handling as well as other testing, packaging, handling and process applications through
the semiconductor manufacturing process.
"Our customers have consistently looked to KUKA to reduce engineering
and integration costs," said Joe Campbell, director of strategic alliances for KUKA Robotics Corporation. "We can
now program and control KUKA clean room robots directly from the Simatic Equipment Control System."
The new 6-axis robot family includes the KUKA KR 3 CR tabletop robot with a 3kg payload and a 635mm reach and
the KUKA KR 16 CR robot with a 16kg payload and a 1,600mm reach. Each model meets the appropriate ISO and DIN
standards for clean room operation and is class 5 according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1 and class 100 according to US
Federal Standard 209 E. KUKA Robotics and Siemens Automation and Drives of Munich, Germany have collaborated to
enable simplified integration of KUKA robots into the Siemens Simatic Equipment Control System (ECS). The new robots
will be displayed at SEMICON West in San Francisco July 12-14, 2005 as part of a display with Siemans Automation and
Drives, booth number 6448.
KUKA Robotics Corporation, with its parent company KUKA Roboter GmbH,
Augsburg, Germany, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial robots, with an annual production
volume approaching 10,000 units, and an installed base of over 60,000 units. The company's 5 and 6 axis robots
range from 3kg to 570kg payloads, and 635mm to 3700mm reach, all controlled from a common PC based controller
platform. KUKA robots are utilized in a diverse range of industries including the appliance, automotive, aerospace,
consumer goods, logistics, food, pharmaceutical, medical, foundry and plastics industries and in multiple
applications including material handling, machine loading, assembly, packaging, palletizing, welding, bending,
joining, and surface finishing.
