Cognibotics HKM1800 pick-and-place robot provides flexibility and scalability, and the company believes it is the fastest offering in warehouse and distribution environments.

Cognibotics, a Sweden-based developer of robotics technology, makes the argument that the HKM1800 supplies the most flexible and scalable and fastest pick-and-place offering in the warehouse and distribution environments.

The robot arm system marks the fourth Cognibotics product release since the company’s founding in 2013.

Reach, range at heart of HKM1800 robot arm

Cognibotics worked with industry experts and company partners during the last decade to develop the HKM1800 to enhance pick-and-place operations significantly, according to the company. The company also said that its new robot boasts new features, benefits and implementation strategies that are noticeably different than other offerings in the warehouse automation market.

“At Cognibotics, we're dedicated to pushing the boundaries of robotics,” said Fredrik Malmgren, CEO of Cognibotics. “Easy-to-use, high-precision robots form affordable, versatile tools that support and complement human capabilities for productivity and work quality. The HKM1800 represents a significant leap forward in automation capabilities, and we're excited to share our latest progress and its potential with the world.”

The HKM1800 has several key features that the company says set it apart from traditional pick-and-place robots:

  • Unmatched speed with exceptional reach: Unlike traditional industrial robots, gantry, SCARA or delta robots, the HKM1800 achieves an impressive pick rate of over 2000 articles per hour, making it the fastest robot currently available on the market, according to Cognibotics. The HKM1800 also covers a workspace of 10m.
  • Versatile range: With the capability to handle items weighing up to 7.5kg in various sizes thanks to a smart tool changing system, the HKM1800 offers versatility and adaptability for a wide range of applications.
  • Innovative technology: Featuring a novelty arm system configuration based on proven industrial components, including Active Motion Stabilization, the HKM1800 ensures smooth and reliable performance even in the most demanding warehouse environments.

“The HKM1800 is designed for professionals involved in warehouse operations, robotics enthusiasts and anyone interested in the future of robot automation,” said Mats Jonsson, business unit manager for material handling at Cognibotics. “Whether you're seeking to optimize your current operations or explore the latest advancements in robotics technology, the HKM1800 offers impeccable speed, reach and range.”
