The revolutionary concept of the new duAro robot from Kawasaki is already clear from its name, which is a fusion of "dual" and "robot". In stark contrast to the haphazard gambling habits of one-armed bandits, duAro uses two arms to methodically create added value and perform the kind of independent two-armed activities that till now always required a human touch. Visitors to CeMAT 2016 can watch duAro live in action on an automated guided vehicle (AGV) used for dynamic warehouse order-picking.
The Kawasaki duAro construction team's focus on ease of operation and programming is plain to see - all you need to program and control duAro is a regular tablet and app. By integrating the new robot’s control panel into a mobile device, they have also ensured duAro can be easily moved from one place to another in next to no time. duAro doesn’t require a lot of space either - its control unit is integrated into the housing, it can work at standard workstations and even right alongside human co-workers thanks to its human-machine integration function. The two horizontal arms can be fitted with a range of dedicated tools to accomplish specific tasks, so Kawasaki's unique dual-arm SCARA robot is always ready and willing to lend a hand - or two!
