KX-2 – Collaborative Laboratory Robot
For flexible, safe and reliable laboratory automation, look no further than the innovative KX-2 collaborative laboratory robot from PAA.
The KX-2 offers continuous 360 degree rotation on the shoulder and wrist axes, providing process optimisation and increased throughput.
The full enclosure design makes it intrinsically safe and proven PAA technology delivers reliable performance for all your automation needs.
KX-2 COLLABORATIVE ROBOT FEATURES
With 360° continuous rotation of the shoulder and wrist axes and a multi-link arm, the KX-2 offers extensive reach for effective use of the available space. The radial compactness of the KX-2 arm, combined with a wide reach, allows easy instrument accessibility and optimal instrument placement, leading to improved instrument density, easy serviceability and increased throughput.
Easy to decontaminate
The KX-2 was developed with contamination minimisation in mind. The sealed design is wipe-clean with no bug traps, making it well-suited for Biosafety Level 2 applications.
The KX-2 is ideal for use on an open bench as operator safety is assured – the KX-2 stops safely on human contact. The fully enclosed working mechanism ensures finger protection, making the robot fundamentally safe to use. The KX-2 is fully compliant with safety standards: ISO 10218–1:2011.
Simple to set up and easy to use
KX-2 features drag-to-teach technology providing easy automation of workflows. Simply move the robot arm through the pathway to the correct position and with the touch of a button the teaching is complete. In the event of power loss, the KX-2 arm remains in position and the servo gripper maintains hold on the plate. On power up, the KX-2 retains taught positions, allowing immediate resumption of the workflow.
The KX-2 can handle a wide range of labware from different types of plates to tip racks, tube racks, petri-dishes and T-flasks, making it the robot of choice for a variety of research applications, including synthetic biology, drug discovery and biotechnology. The counter-balanced arm of the KX-2 allows handling of full deep well plates at maximum extension for optimal use of the work envelope.
KX-2 LINEAR RAIL FEATURES
The KX-2 Linear Rail works seamlessly with the KX2 collaborative laboratory robot to provide extended access for larger systems. The KX-2 Linear Rail is controlled via the same software that controls the KX-2 Collaborative Robot and is treated as simply an additional robot axis.
A maximum speed of 0.75 m/s allows the linear rail to move quickly from one end of a large system to the other, increasing efficiency.
The helical planetary gearing and belt drive keeps audible noise to a minimum.
Simply move the linear rail and robot to the correct position and with a touch of a button and the teaching is complete. Quick, simple, and revolutionary.
Intelligent motion control
The linear rail and robot execute synchronized motion simultaneously. This improves efficiency and simplifies setup.
Easy to integrate
USB interface provides easy connection to host PC. Linear rail and KX2 can be added to existing systems, expanding capability and throughput.
Standard I/O built-in
Digital and Analogue I/O available at the linear rail connector panel for interfacing and controlling other devices.
Every application is unique and with a wide selection of options including linear rail length and various KX2 robot options, the linear rail and robot can be tailored to your exact requirements.
