Product Spotlight: Kassow Robots

A new, 7 Axis collaborative robot that provides the industrial market unseen dexterity and maneuverability.  These cobots are ideal for deployment in tight spaces or applications that involve reaching around corners, thanks to their unique 7th axis design.  Learn more below, and reach out to us if you'd like your application tested in our Nashville robotics lab.

 
 

Robots Are On The Rise

Robot installations have grown exponentially in recent years.   Robots have been around in industry performing many tasks such as welding and material handling since the 1980s.  The recent boom is a result of decreasing costs and ease of use.  Emerging markets such as the area of  Collaborative Robotics have stemmed further growth allowing robots to be used in many new applications.

Modern robots are easier than you may think to deploy.   Robot manufacturers such as Yaskawa with their Smart Series and  Singular Control solutions, have made robot integration and deployment extremely streamlined and significantly easier for those new to robotics.  Mecademic,  who offers the world's smallest and most precise robot takes the approach of allowing the robot to simply be a component in your existing controls architecture with the ability to be an EtherCat Slave device.  Collaborative robots have never been easier to use with  Precise Automation's   simple web interface and the only manufacturer to offer SCARA and Cartesian mechanisms in additional to articulating arms.  For a truly lightweight 7-axis collaborative robot, look no further than Copenhagen based Kassow Robots.

Collaborative Robots




Precise Automation, now owned by Brooks Automation, manufactures the PreciseFlex lineup of collaborative robots.  They make a few different models, all of which are perfect for laboratory automation settings.  These collaborative robots come in different models, including SCARA.  They are some of the fastest and safest collaborative robots on the market today, and come in at an excellent price that makes achieving the return on investment that much easier.  We have a few different models available in our lab, and perform application testing regularly. 



Kassow Robots was founded in Copenhagen (Denmark) is developing and producing unique and efficient 7-axes lightweight collaborative robots for industrial applications.  They are one of the newest robot technologies that we have partnered with.  The company’s motto is “strong, fast, simple”.  Its products offer speed and power, yet also have a long reach.  This collaborative robot line was created to address the main issues that come with collaborative robots...the speed, and strength.  The user-friendliness of the cobots provides businesses with greater flexibility,  allowing SMEs without their own robotics specialists to achieve complex automation and programming cost-effectively and independently.  What is more, the cobots are compact enough for use in confined spaces.  Our team has models in our lab, and we perform application testing regularly for interested customers. 




Yaskawa is a leader in industrial and collaborative robotics.  Unlike traditional more complex robot execution, which requires significant upfront investment in training, Smart Series technology provides simple, intuitive robot programming and operation methods for your workforce. Easily adaptable to changing manufacturing requirements, this suite of products can readily be deployed and redeployed for its next job.  Motoman comes equipped with a large array of robot types and sizes, ensuring that no matter the application they will have the technology that meets your expectations.

What makes the Meca500 industrial robotic arm unique? Unlike most other industrial robots—which are usually complex stand-alone systems—the Meca500 is a plug-and-work automation component. Our robot is a slave component rather than a master, which makes it very easy to integrate via any computer or PLC. The Meca500 doesn’t require any training courses, software installations, or additional option purchases. It’s that simple!
