Cross partners with Doosan Robotics

July 12, 2022

Cross Co., a 100% employee-owned industrial technology company, is partnering with Doosan Robotics Americas to bring their collaborative robot (cobot) technology to the Southeastern United States.

Doosan Robotics was founded in South Korea in 2015, and following three years of research and development the company developed a range of four cobot models that use its proprietary technology. In 2020, the company launched six additional cobot models. The product line includes robots with a load capacity of 11-55lbs., a working radius of 35-67 inches, and collision detection technology for enhanced safety.

“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,” said Lynn Crump, group president for Cross Automation.

Cross Automation serves customers nationwide but will specifically represent 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 added: “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, said: “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 U.S. market. We are beyond excited to collaborate with such an experienced organization.”
