Han’s Robot, a subsidiary of global Chinese manufacturer Han’s Laser, has licensed Actin for its new line of cost-effective collaborative robots (“cobots”), called Elfins. Actin’s easy-to-use robot control and simulation framework offers robot manufacturers faster time to market, reduced software development costs, and powerful control with real-time adaptive motion. These are critical success factors in the competitive cobot market.
Unlike traditional industrial robots, collaborative robots are designed to work safely side-by-side with humans. Key characteristics include built-in safety features, easy programming and use, and low up-front costs, making cobots accessible for a much wider range of applications than traditional robots. In this competitive and demanding market, the Actin control software allowed Han’s Robot to quickly introduce its first Actin-enabled cobot.
“Compared to other solutions, the ease-of-use and power of the Actin framework is exceptional,” said Guangneng Wang, CEO of Han’s Robot. “By leveraging Actin to build the real-time robot controller, our engineers were able to focus on the Elfin hardware and bring our new robot to market quickly and cost-effectively.” Learn More →
