Kassow Robots to make its Hannover Messe premiere in April 2019
Partner company Project A&E will showcase automated banding application
Kastrup (Copenhagen), March 21, 2019 – Cobot manufacturer Kassow Robots will make its first appearance at Hannover Messe (Hall H17, Booth E63) this year. The technology trade fair takes place from 1 to 5 April 2019. It will be the first chance to visit the company’s own booth since Kassow’s market launch at Automatica in Munich last summer. The Danish start-up will be attending Hannover Fair together with Project A&E. The partner from Kranenburg, Germany, will showcase an automated banding application.
“We are very satisfied with how things have gone since our launch. The great interest in our 7-axis cobots at Automatica has resulted in a partner network spread all over Europe. We will continue to expand this in the coming months,” says Dieter Pletscher, head of sales at Kassow Robots.
The feedback of our partners and their customers has been very positive, including from small and medium-sized businesses, says Pletscher. They have found that the strength and flexibility of the 7-axis cobots make them a particularly cost-effective option for human-robot collaboration.
Kassow Robots has expanded production space at its headquarters in Kastrup, Copenhagen, since the turn of the year. “The key stage of development is now complete and we are optimizing the manufacturing process,” says Kristian Kassow, founder of Kassow Robots. Kassow Robots has begun production of the first two cobot models – the KR 810 with a reach of 850 mm and a payload of 10 kg, and the KR 1205 with a reach of 1200 mm and a payload of 5 kg. Both models have 7 axes. Production of the KR 1805, which has a reach of 1800 mm, a payload of 5 kg and 7 axes, will begin in the second half of 2019.
Kassow Robots was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2014 with the mission of developing unique and efficient 7-axis lightweight robots for industrial applications. The company’s motto is “strong, fast, simple”. Its products offer speed and power, yet also have a long reach. The robots’ user-friendliness provides businesses with greater flexibility, allowing SMEs without their own robotics specialists to achieve complex automation and programming cost-effectively and independently. What is more, the cobots are compact enough for use in confined spaces.
Kassow Robots’ product family comprises the cobots KR 810 (with a reach of 850mm / a payload of 10 kg), KR 1205 (with a reach of 1200/a payload of 5 kg) and KR 1805 (with a reach of 1800mm/a payload of 5 kg). Two highly experienced robotics experts – Kristian Kassow as CEO and Dieter Pletscher as Head of Sales – are driving the company’s development. The start-up entered the market at Automatica fair in Munich in June 2018.
