Mounting Assembly

The first step in utilizing the KUKA KR-60 robotic arm for digital fabrication required the development of a mounting assembly. Without it, the end-effectors we develop in the future would require custom attachment solutions independent to each end-effector. To resolve this, the mounting assembly was constructed of 80/20 Inc. aluminum extrusion and steel profiles. The mounting assembly mounts direct to the end of the KUKA and acts as a machine table for other custom end-effectors to be bolted and secured to the aluminum extrusions.
