This week, Elite Robots announced that its new CS Series collaborative robots will be showcased at a number of upcoming exhibitions worldwide. The new cobots will be first shown at the Detroit Automate show, which will be held from June 6 to 9 in the Huntington Place Convention Center.
The CS Series includes three models— CS63, CS66, and C612, with each offering reaches of 624mm (24 in), 914mm (35 in) and 1,304mm (51 in.), respectively. The CS63 can carry payloads of up to 3Kg (6.6 Ib.); the CS66 can carry payloads of 6Kg (13 lb.); the C612 can carry payloads of 12Kg (26 lb.).
The applications include (but are not limited to) material handling, visual inspection, assembly and tightening, machine tool loading and unloading, packaging and palletizing, welding, and cutting, the company said.
Designed to work across industries
The cobots are designed to be used across sectors such as automotive, 3C electronics, food and beverage, metal processing, paper converting, home appliances, power, and education, it added.
CS stands for “Cobot Superior.” The Shanghai, China-based company said the CS Series features all the advantages of the previous EC Series and more.
Elite said the new series embodies the flexibility and openness of a new generation of collaborative robots. The new series is based on the “platformization” concept, according to the company. It was designed and manufactured by applying the so-called “4-S principle”—simple, safe, scalable and sustainable—it added.
The company will exhibit at Automate Booth 435. It did not specify where the CS series will be showcased after Automate in its announcement.
Cobot market leader Universal Robots will also have a presence at the show, recently noting that more than 30 booths throughout the venue will have its robots on display or in action.
The global market for cobots is expected to reach $1.8 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth of 18.37 between 2021 and 2026, according to Mordor Intelligence.
