Cross Company partners with Doosan Robotics

Cross Company, a 100 percent employee-owned industrial technology company, is partnering with Doosan Robotics Americas to bring its collaborative robot (cobot) technology to the south-eastern United States.

Doosan Robotics was founded in South Korea in 2015 and following three years of research and development they developed a range of four cobot models that use their proprietary technology.

With the launch of six additional cobot models in 2020, Doosan now offers the most diversified line of collaborative robots on the market.

Their product line includes robots with a load capacity of 11-55 lbs, a working radius of 35-67 inches, and unique collision detection technology for enhanced safety.

Doosan Robotics is currently in the top five robotics distributors in the world and the number one manufacturer in South Korea.

Lynn Crump, group president for Cross Automation, says: “We are so excited for the opportunity to offer Doosan collaborative robots to our customers.

“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 Automation serves customers nationwide but will be specifically representing Doosan Robotics in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama.

In addition to being a distributor, Cross will be a nationally certified integrator of Doosan collaborative robots as well as a factory-certified service center.

Crump says: “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.

“Our partnership with Doosan will boost our ability to implement solutions for our customers to combat the ongoing labor shortage by automating manual processes.”

Alex Lee, general manager for Doosan Robotics Americas, says: “It was an easy decision to partner with Cross Company, given their long and successful track record in the automation industry and cobot sphere.

“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 US market. We are beyond excited to collaborate with such an experienced organization.”
