NEWSLETTER 7 | 3 MARCH 2021
On a societal level, 2020 shook up the world and our society as a whole. The same is true for the world of robotics. For this year, however, we at Kassow Robots are optimistic that we will be able to see more of you in person again, at least on a smaller scale. We are looking forward to it!
Things are dynamic in 2021: Further partners, for example from the USA, have joined us. Today we are also announcing the expansion of our R&D team: With Lasse Kieffer and Peter Nadolny Madsen, we have been able to recruit two top-class professionals from the robotics industry as advisors. But read for yourself...
Our summary of the last three years is also positive: We first introduced ourselves in 2018, and in 2019, the launch of the first products started. Finally, 2020 was a triple success for us – despite special market conditions: As planned, our product family has now grown to five cobots – with a payload of up to 18 kilograms and a reach of up to 1.80 meters. Our cobots with the 7th axis are increasingly being used for demanding applications, e. g. in the area of gluing or labelling in confined spaces. Finally, at the end of 2020, we launched the expansion of our partner network in the direction of Asia.
We look forward to sharing and meeting with you!

Kassow Robots expands its R&D team
Lasse Kieffer and Peter Nadolny Madsen start as advisors
With Lasse Kieffer and Peter Nadolny Madsen, “real robotics brains with a lot of entrepreneurial genes,” as Kristian Kassow put it, are starting as advisors at Kassow Robots. They both bring with them in-depth robotics expertise in the areas of electronics, firmware, robotics applications and ISO standards. CEO and company founder Kristian Kassow knows them personally: In 2007, in his former position as the company’s CEO of Universal Robots, he had been able to win Lasse Kieffer over to this company for developing the first cobots. After Leaving Universal Robots, Lasse Kieffer and Peter Nadolny Madsen founded Purple Robotics, where they invented the world`s first dual vacuum gripper and created a global sales network within a single year. In 2018, they sold and merged their company into OnRobot to join forces.
For Lasse Kieffer, “it’s impressive how Kassow Robots has managed to combine user-friendliness and flexibility in its 7-axis cobots – especially since they meet a wide range of customer needs with their five cobot models.”

Coworker cobot: Examples of application
Bearing feeding application
Nice ease of programming our 7-axis cobots: It took Batu Sipka from our US-partner Gibson Engineering only about 6 hours from start to finish to complete this proof of concept. Check out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xcwQMCDopM
Contract filling / weighing & dosing
Significant increases in productivity for the customer while protecting the health of employees: Alexander Bürkle helps weighing and dosing specialist JMTronic to economically automate monotonous work and production processes by having manual processes in contract filling be performed by our 7-axis cobot.
Maneuverability and metal working
Check out the moves of our 7-axis Cobot (KR810) in extremely tight spaces.
Our range of 7-axis robots consist of four other cobots with varying length and payload - all strong, fast and simple, making them ideal for SME's and industrial companies.
