Evolution of robotics
‘KR-Cobots’ by Kassow Robots
A Danish start-up, Kassow Robots, has also launched three new ‘KR-Cobots’ including the KR 810 with a reach of 850 mm and payload of 10 kg, the KR 1205 with a reach of 1200 mm and payload of 5 kg and the KR 1805 with a reach of 1800 mm and payload of 5 kg.
Especially designed for SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises), the lightweight seven-axis cobots are extremely flexible and offer speeds up to 225 degrees per second. The cobots can be used for a wide range of activities including loading and unloading machinery, pick & place, palletising, small assembly tasks, testing, quality control and adhesive applications.
KUKA’s LBR iisy cobot is another recent cobot. As the name suggests, the six-axis cobot is an easy to use collaborative robot which can be used for loading or unloading machines, packaging, precise testing, reliable assembly, handling or difficult research tasks.
Used across different business verticals collaborative robots enable to enhance productivity. In spite of these benefits, industry workers are apprehensive about cobots or robots taking over their jobs. However, experts from the industry assured that this will not happen as cobots are used to only carry out the repetitive and tedious tasks thus enabling the worker to obtain better skills and carry out complex functions within the production process.
So, if you are interested in learning more about cobots and want to stay updated on the latest happenings in the robotics market do visit the AMB event in Germany which is expected to take place from September 18–22, 2018.
