True to our claim “strong, fast, simple”, we develop and produce uniquely efficient industrial collaborative lightweight robots with 7 axes. Despite their large reach, Kassow Robots are extremely powerful, fast and suitable for use in small spaces. What is more, they enable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to achieve complex automation and programming flexibly, independently and cost-effectively. Our technology is based on a novel design of both robot controller, user interface and arm mechanics. It has been developed by a team lead by Kristian Kassow, who, in his previous start-up years ago, was also responsible for other ground-breaking designs in the field of robotics.
Our vision is to offer a wide range of models to help all manufacturing companies, SMEs in particular produce even more competitively using cobots in a multitude of ways.
Five 7-axis cobots in a row: These lightweight robots developed and made by Kassow Robots (from right): KR810 (850 mm reach/ 10 kg payload), the new KR1018 (1000mm / 18 kg), KR1205 (1200 mm / 5 kg) KR1410 (1400 mm / 10 kg), KR1805 (1800 mm / 5 kg).
Longer reach and higher payload – no matter the use
7 AXES FOR MORE FLEXIBILITY AND LOWER COSTS
All Kassow robots are “lightweight articulated robots” – i.e. robots with a single arm and rotating joints. Depending on a risk analysis, they can be used directly in industrial production with minimal or even no additional safety measures.
What makes our robots special: Unlike other robot manufacturers, whose portfolios usually feature only six-axis models, we exclusively make robots with 7 fully controlled axes. These 7 axes give you much more flexibility, as they enable our robot arms to far better replicate the movement of a real human arm.
This means that Kassow robots can not only move an object in a straight line from A to B, but can also follow a curved path at a specified speed. This offers real advantages, for instance when it comes to tasks such as welding, painting and gluing, or where particular manoeuvrability is required (e.g. when loading machining centres in confined spaces).
