KUKA KR180-PA Suit Install

Roboworld KUKA KR180-PA
Robosuit Installation Instructions
Version 10/10
Be sure to remove any valve packs, j-box, brackets, etc from the robot before
beginning this process. The suit is designed to fit the casting of the robot only. If the
robot is dirty, it is suggested that it be cleaned as well before suit installation.
• It is recommended that the suit be
installed with the adhesive backed
Velcro attached to the suit. Once the
individual suit pieces are properly
installed on the robot, the adhesive
sided Velcro must be attached to the
robot to stabilize the suit for high speed
If you have received a stationary base cover, install this first. Be careful to cut hole in
gum-rubber panel for hard stop.
Install joint 3 Servo Motor Cap
Install the upper arm section. Picture sequence 1,2,3 and 4 (over next few pages) show
the proper method. The flexible conduit remains inside the suit and can be accessed
using the two "gooseneck" panels. If the conduit is not used, attach the supplied flat
Velcro panels. Note how the joint 3 servo motor cap attaches to this piece.

Install the lower arm section. The flexible conduit clamps must first be removed from
the robot and re-attached through the Velcro panels in the suit piece. A "gooseneck"
opening near joint 2 allows the conduit to exit the suit piece. A Teflon protective
sleeve must also be attached over a wear surface as shown in pictures A and B. Begin
the installation by placing the balance unit end between and through the arm and rear
linkage and extend it over the balance unit. Picture sequence 5,6,7 and 8 shows the
completed procedure.
