ADVANCED ROBOTICS DOESN’T HAVE TO RHYME WITH COMPLICATED SETUP.

Our actuators take only a few minutes to setup. With a simple mechanical mounting and software installation, you’ll start working on day 1.

BECAUSE DESIGN MATERS

Service robots are designed to be used in proximity to people. We therefore disrupted the design of traditional industrial robots to create a more appealing and aesthetic look and feel.

TEAR DOWN THE CAGES.

Our low inertia products combined with a complete range of sensors prevent the robots from causing harm to itself or its surrounding.

MANIPULATION IN MOTION

Kinova’s robot arms are the perfect solution for integrating a manipulation dimension to your mobile platform.

They are the ideal partners to assist technicians and professionals for inspections or manipulations in harsh, confined, hazardous or manufacturing environments. Our robots can also be customized to perform a series of automated tasks, augmenting quality, productivity and efficiency in formalized non-regression testing phases. Light and compact, the arm can be integrated with many existing mobile platform models. Moreover, due to its low power consumption, the robot arm will not significantly reduce the autonomy of the platform.

THE PERFECT ASSISTANT

With their modular configuration and low backlash actuators, Kinova’s robot arms are the perfect helping arm for medical operations.

HUMAN ROBOT COLLABORATION

Automating inspection/pick & place operations or working in collaboration with staff on the floor, Kinova’s versatile robots have all the attributes needed to perform the various tasks leading to improving the quality and productivity of your facility.

YOU HAVE THE IDEA, WE HAVE THE TOOL

Fostering innovation is at the heart of Kinova`s values and design philosophy. From fundamentals teaching to cutting edge research, our flexible solutions can create an appropriate configuration for your project. Over 200 labs have adopted our robots for applications ranging from BCI control to humanoid manipulators.

“Kinova's robots are the best in their category. It is thoughtfully designed, has fantastic kinematic reachability, and is safe and lightweight. I am also deeply impressed with Kinova's commitment to deploying their arms in the real world for people with real needs. I am excited to be working closely with them.”
