KR1018 7-Axis Cobot Extends Reach and Payloads
Kassow Robots, a developer of 7-axis robot and cobot solutions for machine tending, material handling, and related applications, is pleased to introduce to North America the KR1018. This precise industrial cobot is strong enough to perform machine tending with heavy metal and plastic parts and to carry out pick-and-place tasks at high payloads.The 7-axis KR1018 has a payload of 18 kg and a reach of 1000 mm, making it the ideal machine to complete precise and repetitive industrial tasks that require great strength. At just 34 kg, the cobot is easy to relocate to perform tasks in different areas of a facility. Kassow Robots’ easy-to-use interface and plug-and-play concept make the KR1018 accessible to SMEs without robot engineers. Its unique seventh axis, or “wrist joint,” and the safety-compliant design inherent to the cobot class of automated material handling solutions allow for human–robot collaboration. The seventh axis also enables continuous dispensing, welding, and material removal applications, regardless of access angle, without the need to reorient the arm.
