Danish firm Kassow Robots has added two 7-axes cobots models to its product portfolio.
With its 1.80-metre robot arm – giving it an unrivalled reach in the cobot market – the KR 1805 opens up completely new applications for customers in industry.
Thanks in part to its seventh axis, which allows it to reach around corners, a single cobot can now look after all the stacking and labelling tasks for Euro-pallets.
The KR 1410 has a reach of 1.40 metres and a payload of 10 kilograms – a strong combination in the lightweight robotics market. This opens up a wide range of applications for human-robot collaboration (HRC), including sectors such as the metal industry where high payloads are essential.
It takes the total range to four models with the latest models joining the KR 810 (reach 850 mm/payload 10kg) and KR 1205 (1200 mm/ 5kg).
“Strong, fast, simple – this has been our mission since we first introduced our company two years ago,” says Dieter Pletscher, Head of Sales at Kassow Robots.
“All four models offer a unique combination of power and speed and are easy to operate. When it comes to reach, the KR1805 is king with its 1.80-metre arm. We are proud to be able to offer industrial customers this added value.”
Kristian Kassow, founder and CEO of Kassow Robots, added: “After first presenting our company in 2018 and introducing the first two models in 2019, we can now offer a strong product family of four cobots. For small and medium-sized enterprises, they are a strong, cost-efficient cobot package with almost infinite potential applications.”
Pletscher added: “For SMEs, introducing or expanding the use of lightweight robotics solutions now really pays off. What is more, the cobots are programmed on an intuitive, user-friendly device, just like the tablets we all use at home.”
The cobots all have three ports, including a data/Ethernet connection to enable easy working. Data/Ethernet port enables wireless connection between the end-of-arm tool and the robot
As the company announced in autumn 2019, Kassow fits all four cobot models with three ports as standard, with various I/Os and power supply signals. Two of the ports are for digital or analogue input/output. The third port enables a direct data/Ethernet connection with the controller.
This way, customers can, for example, connect camera solutions or Modbus TCP directly to the robot via the intelligent end-of-arm tool interface. This means that the cable does not have to run along the robot arm externally. All cobots from the Danish manufacturer have an end-of-arm tool with a free drive button, making it easy to program waypoints.
*Kassow Robots will be also present at this year`s Automatica fair in Munich taking place 16-19 June 2020 (Booth C6.410).
