Doosan Robotics formed a strategic partnership with Industrial Automation Supply (IAS) in Portland, Maine. IAS will serve as a partner and reseller of Doosan’s M, H and A-SERIES collaborative robotic arms across the Northeast.

Doosan’s four M-SERIES cobot models are all equipped with six torque sensors – one in each joint. The models have a working radius of 900 to 1,700 millimeters and a payload capacity of 6 to 15 kilograms.

Introduced in 2019, the company’s A-SERIES offers four separate models (A0509, A0509s, A0912, and A0912s). The lineup offers payload capacities between 5-9 kg and reaches between 900-1200 mm.

The H-SERIES lineup boasts the highest payload of the company’s range of collaborative robot applications. The cobots in this series offer payload capacities of 20 kg and 25 kg with a reach of 1700 mm and 1500 mm, respectively.

“Strategic partnerships are the key to success for Doosan Robotics, and with the addition of IAS we are continuing to expand our reach across the U.S.,” said Alex Lee, general manager of Doosan Robotics Americas. “We look forward to partnering with IAS and a successful future together.”

Doosan Robotics recently announced its American expansion with a new headquarters in Plano, Texas.

“We are extremely excited about our partnership with Doosan,” IAS president Chris LeBel said. “The collaborative robot market in the United States is growing and evolving every day, and Doosan is a truly special partner with so much to offer in the ever-expanding realm of collaborative robotics.”

IAS has been serving original equipment manufacturers in the Northeast since 1993. With a focus on the industrial automation market, IAS has built a strong customer base throughout New England. In 2017, IAS expanded its services into production with the Systems Group, IAS’s panel production arm, which has led to the opening of a second location in Scarborough, Maine.
