Processing quality

The Kinova Link 6 possesses high reliability coupled with professional accuracy. It features 6 degrees of freedom and is able to repeat the same movement within ±0.1 mm at a maximum speed of 2 m/s. In combination with 6 kg continuous payload, this lets the robot perform an ample range of lightweight precision tasks with ease. In addition, an integrated force-torque sensor provides the means to perform complex assembly operations.

Due to a high rating of ingress protection, namely IP54, the Link 6 collaborative robot can operate in various application scenarios implying potential environmental hazards, like dust and water. Moreover, the machine is fully operational from 0 to 40 °C. Its shells are made of aluminum with powder coating finish for higher durability.



Thanks to its smart functionality and thoughtful design, the Kinova Link 6 can adapt to a variety of spheres implying precise, repetitive tasks. Due to its rapid deployment, compact dimensions, and high repeatability, the Link 6 model is ideal for CNC machine tending applications.

Apart from this, one can entrust the Link 6 cobot with small parts assembly, quality control and assurance, inspection, kitting, packaging, and more. This versatility is achieved through the robot’s innovative wrist offering increased ease of use and efficiency. Engineered with a feed-through of power and data to the end effector for cable-management-less tool installation, it provides up to 4A @ 24V available to power your tools, including optional Gigabit Ethernet and Vision modules.

For example, see how the Kinova Link 6 collaborative robot manages to cope with industrial operations of various complexity:

The reasonable implementation of the Kinova Link 6 allows you to automate manifold industrial processes, save time, and significantly reduce labor costs. Thanks to the Link 6 cobot, one can move their employees to value-added tasks for improved efficiency across any factory, workshop, or lab.


Working range

The Kinova Link 6 model features six-axis movement and possesses a maximum reach of up to 1149 mm (45.2 in) in combination with a flexible and lightweight joint body. Its ergonomic design with a 149 mm footprint diameter enables rapid deployment without the need to alter layout of a designated area.


Robot controls and software
