Doosan Robotics Inc. unveiled its latest and most powerful series of cobots yet: the PRIME-SERIES, or P-SERIES yesterday. Its new P3020 cobot, part of the line, is the company’s longest-reaching cobot to date. 

The P3020 collaborative robot (cobot) has a payload of up to 30 kg (60 lbs) and a reach of 2,030 mm (80 in). This means it can palletize from the floor to up to 2 m high, stacking up to 10 layers of boxes approximately 8 inches tall, using its simple fixed base without a lift. 

“As a motion platform company, Doosan Robotics is meeting the ever-growing need for cobots to mimic human motion, powerfully and safely,” said William Ryu, CEO of Doosan Robotics. “The robotics industry continues to grow at an exponential pace and our lineup of software, cobots and AI differentiates us in our mission to develop cobots with a ‘max-powered, max-efficiency, max-safety’ mindset.”

The South Korean-based cobot manufacturer said its robots can work in several industries, including manufacturing, logistics, food and beverage, architecture, filmmaking, service sectors, and medicine. Its H-SERIES cobot line, released in 2022, has attracted major global customers like Schiphol Airport and Wacker Korea. This has enhanced its global market share by 72%. 

P-SERIES key features

Doosan’s P-SERIES has low power consumption compared to similar payload cobots. It does this by applying its built-in gravity compensation mechanism, inherent wrist-singularity free, and a 5 degree-of-freedom movement with the 4th axis removed and 6th axis speed increased to 360 degrees/second. 

The robot has also achieved the highest PL (e) and Cat 4 safety ratings to ensure both a max-powered and max-safety experience for users. 

Doosan says its systems can adeptly maneuver through intricate scenarios while infusing tasks with enhanced efficiency, safety, and ingenuity. The AI systems behind the cobots have continuous learning capabilities and update its model by autonomously downloading required modules for smooth integration. 

Doosan upgrades software

Earlier this year, Doosan released two new products: its new Dart-Suite software and Otto Matic palletizing system. The company said the artificial intelligence powering its systems continuously learns and updates its model by downloading modules automatically.

Doosan described Dart-Suite as a robot ecosystem that “redefines” its customers’ experience with its robots and makes automation more accessible. The platform incorporates AI to enable users to develop, sell, download, and trigger actions through various interfaces. The suite uses an integrated development environment (IDE), which Doosan said allows customers to create modules tailored to their needs, similar to mobile device apps.

Otto Matic is a depalletizing and palletizing system that can handle unstructured and random-sized boxes. Doosan said it developed the system to bring additional deep learning and computer vision technology to its cobots.
