Doosan Robotics has introduced its collaborative robots at the "Automate 2019" held in Chicago from April 8 to 11 for the first time.
Doosan Robotics set up the largest booth among the participating companies and displayed examples of demonstrating automotive composite solutions and implementing various collaborative robot applications. It has also prepared sections such as conveyor tracking, gear assembly and visitor experience space.
Doosan's collaboraative robot is equipped with a precision "torque sensor" that detects force on each of the six joints, which not only detects a slight change in force of 0.2 newton (20g), but also helps workers work safely by detecting small external shocks.
Doosan Robotics' demonstration of a combined automotive solution was considered the highlight of the upcoming Automate 2019. Six collaborative robots, along with two workers, introduced nine smart automation processes, including job assistance, parts transportation, bolt assembly, gluing and polishing, around luxury sports cars.
During the exhibition period, Doosan Robotics signed a dealership contract with RG Industries of the U.S. and held contract talks with several dealers from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It also sought cooperation with major gripper companies such as Robotiq and OnRobot, including joint marketing.
"The successful launch in Germany last year, when only the world's best technology is available, has clearly put Doosan's outstanding technology and competitiveness into the European market," said Lee Byung-seo, CEO of Doosan Robotics.
