Kassow Robots has added two more models to its product portfolio: KR 1805 and KR 1410. The models have seven fully controlled axes, which offers more flexibility. The KR 1805 has a reach of 1.80 metres and a payload of 5 kilograms, the KR 1410 impresses with a reach of 1.40 metres and a payload of 10 kilograms.
With its 1.80-metre robot arm the KR 1805 opens up new applications for customers in industry. Thanks in part to its 7th axis, which allows it to reach around corners, a single cobot can now look after all the stacking and labelling tasks for Euro-pallets, for example. The KR 1410 impresses with a reach of 1.40 metres and a payload of 10 kilograms. This opens up a wide range of applications for human robot collaboration (HRC), including in sectors such as the metal industry where high payloads are essential.
The Kassow Robots product family now includes four 7-axes cobots: the KR 810 (reach 850 mm/payload 10 kg) and KR 1205 (1200 mm/5 kg), both introduced in 2019, and the two models currently launching: KR 1805 (1800 mm/5 kg) and KR 1410 (1400 mm/10 kg). „All four models offer a combination of power and speed and are easy to operate. When it comes to reach, the KR1805 is king with ist 1.80-metre arm”, says Dieter Pletscher, Head of Sales at Kassow Robots. „For small and medium-sized enterprises, they are a strong, cost-efficient cobot package with almost infinite potential applications,” says Kristian Kassow, founder and CEO of Kassow Robots.
Pletscher adds, “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.
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 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. as
