Kawasaki Robotics launches CL Series of agile cobots
50 years of robotics expertise and leading technology made in Japan is meeting automation innovation made in Germany with the newly launched Kawasaki Robotics CL Series. A variety of payloads and reaches provides an entirely new and agile approach to collaborative robotics – powered by a partnership with Neura Robotics. The joint venture brings together two companies with like-minded desire to challenge the current understanding of cobots in industry – entering a new era of collaborative automation.
Industrial scale performance and all the advantages of cobots
The CL Series offers the best of both worlds, with full-on industrial scale performance and speed paired with maximum protection and all advantages of collaborative robotics. Combined with an intuitive user interface, the CL Series makes automating production lines easier than ever before. With payloads and reaches of 3kg/590mm, 5kg/800mm, 8kg/1300mm and 10 kg/1000mm, the four models of the CL Series offer the perfect solution for every scenario. Free mounting orientations, extremely small footprints and IP66 classification provide additional flexibility – for all models. Its proprietary safety architecture and many features for safety positions, speed, torque, zones, limits and collision detection allow the CL Series Cobots to operate alongside human workers.
Designed and made in Germany: State-of-the-art cobot technology
The CL Series brings together industry-leading speed of 200°/s, and repeatability of ± 0.02 mm for all models. The collaborative robot line is the perfect choice for automating simple and repetitive tasks – effectively saving costs and maximizing revenue. Designed and made in Germany, the CL Series offers excellent performance through high-quality components, such as the integrated 24-bit encoders, which are among the highest-resolution on the market, and an extremely light-weight yet reliable construction. Thanks to its compact and robust design and IP66 rating, the CL Series can be used in all kinds of harsh environments that may not be suitable for other collaborative robots.
