Cross Company, a Greensboro, N.C.-based robotics and machine automation systems integrator, have announced a partnership with Doosan Robotics America to help bring collaborative robot (aka ‘cobots’) to the Southeastern United States.
Founded in 2015 in South Korea, Doosan Robotics now offers 10 cobot models that includes robots with load capacities racing from 11 to 55 lbs., a working radius of 35 to 67 inches, and unique collision detection technology for enhanced safety.
“We are so excited for the opportunity to offer Doosan collaborative robots to our customers,” said Lynn Crump, group president for Cross Automation. “We believe that their outstanding technology, superior quality, advanced safety features, and diverse product offerings will enable Cross to implement the perfect collaborative solution for our customers – even in applications that were previously incompatible with cobots.”
Cross said it serves costumes nationwide, but will specifically represent Doosan Robotics in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama. In addition to being a distributor, Cross is a nationally certified integrator of Doosan collaborative robots as well as a factory-certified service center.
“By supporting customers with integration services as well as repair and maintenance, we will offer a unique level of after-sales support that is not otherwise available in the United States for Doosan Robotics,” said Crump. “Our partnership with Doosan will boost our ability to implement solutions for our customers to combat the ongoing labor shortage by automating manual processes.”
“It was an easy decision to partner with Cross Company, given their long and successful track record in the automation industry and cobot sphere,” said Alex Lee, general manager for Doosan Robotics Americas. “Cross Company’s strong technical capabilities, robust array of system solutions, and vast distribution network lend immeasurable value as Doosan Robotics Americas continues to expand into the U.S. market. We are beyond excited to collaborate with such an experienced organization.
