5 Axis Column Robot

The new column robotic system, uniquely designed by KIBERYS, allows effective use the robot for plasma pipe and tube cutting.

The cartesian robot with 3 linear axes can be outfitted with 2 rotational axes for optimized reach and performance. Possibility for dual head design also increases the implementation potential.

The characteristics of the mechanical design make it optimal for large workpieces in all dimensions. The advantages of this design are:

  • controller unit mounted on the robot;
  • power sources mounted on the robot;
  • programming unit for operator traveling with the robot.

Key features

  • Indefinitely extensible work area along the X
  • All-in-one system for welding and cutting
  • 5 axes robot design
  • Synchronization between 2 or more robots
  • Automatic tool change

Suitable applications

  • Automotive Industry
  • Crane Building
  • Oil & Gas Industry
  • Machine Building
  • Metal Construction
  • Shipbuilding

5 Axis Gantry

kbcut_hd55-Axis, heavy-duty, double-side driven CNC gantry system for cutting complex shapes with beveling up to 45°.

Precise positioning with rack and pinion on 3 axes and 2 rotational axes for torch rotation and inclination.

Low backlash, precision gears, as well as highly rigid and precise rail guiding system enable the smooth motion, stable operation with inclined torch and excellent cut surface, also when beveling.
