7th axis design and parts enquiry
« on: February 15, 2022, 02:59:52 PM »
Hi folks,

I would like to add a rotary 7th axis to my kuka set up.

I have a ksd1-32 driver and can buy a matching servo but looking for a supplier for a gear drive to build me own 7th. Does anyone have a link to a design or a supplier for a kuka MGU parts?

I dont expect to be machining heavy items and I suspect rpm not higher that 20rpm 

Thanks

Hello,

The driver is for a KRC2 robot, so you are probably looking at used parts. The used parts business is quite local, so without any information on your location it's hard to provide suggestions.

Best,
Johannes

Hi Johannes,

Indeed the driver is for a KRC2 so most definitely looking for used parts. I have a KSD1-32 and a matching servo so primarily I am really just after a geared reducer for that combo.

I'm based in the UK

Regards

Calum

Hello Calum,

In the UK I would talk to Global Robots, they were always very pleasant to deal with!

Best,
