Kassow Robots Partners with BlueBay Automation

Kassow Robots, a developer of 7-axis collaborative robots (cobots) for machine tending, material handling and related applications, has partnered with BlueBay Automation (Nashville, TN), an industrial automation solutions provider.

"In applications with extremely tight spaces, robotic solutions are seldomly feasible," said Dieter Pletscher, head of global sales at Kassow Robots. "However, the Kassow Robots KR series of 7-axis lightweight cobots enables BlueBay Automation customers to efficiently navigate light manufacturing operations in a wide variety of industries and applications, including machine tending, palletizing, welding, automotive, packaging and electronics. Our broad product portfolio of 7-axis cobots and BlueBay Automation's integration capabilities and extensive robot experience will help customers combat common industrial challenges, such as difficult retrofits, labor shortages and continuous improvement efforts

The KR series of 7-axis lightweight cobots provides a reach of about 3' to 6' (850 mm to 1,800 mm) and payloads around 11 lbs. to 40 lbs. (5 kg to 18 kg) to automate a variety of physically demanding and/or repetitive tasks. Additionally, each joint offers speeds of 225 degrees per second to keep up with applications such as pick & place tasks, quality inspection and palletizing.

"We have been following our cobot competitors closely as the market matures, and Kassow Robots' 7th axis is a differentiator for overcoming payload and speed limitations," said Pierre de Giorgio, CEO of BlueBay Automation. "All of Kassow Robots' significant competitive advantages have set them apart from the rest of the market, so we wanted to get in on the ground level and become part of this story."

Flexible software programming and Kassow's seventh axis enable continuous dispensing, welding and material removal applications regardless of access angle, without the need to reorient the arm. The cobots are suited for limited-space retrofits and a strong addition to BlueBay Automation's flexible automation, robotics, motion control and IIoT solutions.
