I recently became the proud owner of a Kuka Robot - KR200 / 1A. Unfortunately, it was only available without a control unit (KR C1). When I bought the robot, I did not know what I was going to do with it. But after some searching, I found out that you can operate a robot with CAD / CAM systems. So that sounds like a nice hobby project to me.
Here some details of the robot:
Type: KR 200 / 1A
Serial no: 724163
Year of construction: 1998
Axis Motors: 1-2-3
No. E K550 0225 41 021
Axis Motors: 4-5-6
My question is, what is the best way (for my wallet ) to make this older robot work with CAD / CAM?
Option1: Buy a KR C2-unit --> Robotmaster/Sprutcam --> Mastercam --> Autocad/Solidworks
Option2: Buy a Hicon Controller --> Mach4 --> Mastercam --> Autocad/Solidworks
Or does someone have other Options??
Thanks to everyone!!!
