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, has introduced the KR1018. This industrial cobot is designed to be strong enough to perform machine tending with heavy metal and plastic parts and to carry out pick & place tasks at high payloads.

The 7-axis KR1018 has a payload of 18 kg and a reach of 1,000 mm, allowing it to perform precise and repetitive industrial tasks that require high strength. The easy-to-use interface and plug & play concept of the 7-axis cobot make it accessible to small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) without robot engineers.

The KR1018 is suited for industrial applications, including machine tending, assembly, quality assurance, palletizing and pick & place tasks. Its 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. At just 34 kg, the KR1018 is easy to relocate to perform tasks in different areas of a facility.

The seventh axis gives the KR1018 a small footprint (160 mm x 160 mm), increased maneuverability and an increased range of motion to perform such tasks as loading and unloading of heavy parts. The seventh axis also enables continuous dispensing, welding and material removal applications, regardless of access angle, without the need to reorient the arm.
