Doosan Robotics is part of the Doosan group, a Korean organization that makes a wide range of industrial machines. The M-series from Doosan, which they started in 2017, consists of 4 types of cobots with a load capacity of 6 to 15 kg and a range of 900 to 1700 mm. These robot arms are characterized by a wider reach than most brands of cobots. Another difference with many other cobots is that the M-series switches off the engine instead of switching on a brake at a safety stop. This provides a longer lifespan and increased accuracy for the cobots.
The Doosan cobots have an integrated vision system that is optionally available. The cobots have a coating that protects them against the liquids used in CNC machines. This makes them ideal for loading production machines.
Programming Doosan cobots
Like all cobot brands, Doosan has also developed its own software to control the cobots. Programming is done via a tablet. In addition, the cobots have a programming button on the head of the robot arm for programming via hand guidance. Many actions of a cobot are pre-programmed in blocks. That makes programming extra easy and fast.
