The ultra high-performance robot with large workspace

An innovative new robot enabling long reach with high motion performance.

The HKM enables new opportunities for robotized material handling when the distances are longer or include several pick&place positions over a large surface. Built on low weight, high performance material and configured to have extremly little mass moving, enabling top performance with a minimum of energy consumption.

Product facts

  • 1800 mm radial reach
  • 2000 mm pick cycle 1,6 sec
  • Energy efficient
  • Flexible mounting
  • Active Motion Stabilization

Why Hybrid Kinematics?

Hybrid kinematics combines the advantages of both serial and parallel kinematics. This enables the lowest moving masses and shortest possible cycle time over large circular work areas.

HKM top features

Long reach

1800 mm reach over 360 degrees maximizes the work area of one single robot

Short cycle time

1-2 s full cycle time over work areas up to 10m2

Small footprint

Perfect fit for compact production lines. No need for supporting structures

Low weight

Lowers energy consumption and makes it suitable for collaborative use-cases

Perfect pick & place robot

The large reach of the robot in combination with it’s high speed makes it ideal for pick & place applications. A single robot can cover large areas and support multiple pick & place stations at the same time. The slim design even allows for the robot to enter shelfs and can be mounted on the floor, on the wall or in the ceiling.

High speed material handling

The low weight of the robot allows it to move very fast over it’s entire work area including an impressive z-stroke of close to 1 m. It can easily serve multiple machines, taking full advantage of its short cycle time of 1-2 seconds. This makes it ideal for material handling tasks when the distance is far between different work positions.

One robot to replace several others

The HKM can use its speed and coverage to replace several traditional robots. This reduces the floor space and enables more compact production lines. It also enables the robot to work upstream as well as downstream of a material feed and dynamically track an object for processing of moving items.

Energy efficiency

The HKM is an energy efficient robot. The robot arm only weigh about 15kg which means that it consumes a minimum of energy when moving. This allows it to accelerate and deaccelerate quickly without large energy losses or generation of heat. This capability makes it unique in the sense that the robots can be used in a collaborative environments and at the same time be very fast. It also reduces energy cost and simplifies installation procedures.

Powerful and easy-to-use programming

The robot support HTML based programming using open standardized interfaces and languages. This gives you the freedom to program and control the robot equally well from PC as well as tech pendant devices.

Material feeding direct from Pallet

The workspace of HKM1800 covers up to 6 EU pallets. Equipped with an efficient tool changing system enables the robot to swiftly switch between different tools, facilitating the handling of diverse materials and products with precision and efficiency.

HKM1800 for intensive kitting operation

Maximize your productivity. The reach and speed of the HKM1800 make it a perfect operator for the most intensive kitting operation.

Hard to complete all tasks due to short reach?

HKM has a 10 m2 workspace, enabling complete kitting & palletizing in one cell.

Increase efficiency in AutoStore

The HKM1800 has the reach and speed to handle two AutoStore elevators. Or, complete the order before sending it down the elevators and increase the order flow.
