MONTREAL — Kinova, a company based in Montreal, is launching Link 6, a an industrial robot designed for all businesses looking to benefit from automation. In a booming market, this robot was created from start to finish in North America.

Link 6 is Canada’s first industrial collaborative robot, featuring automation solutions that reportedly enable greater daily efficiency while trying to improve the quality and consistency of production results. Key applications at launch will be pick-and-place, part assembly and machine tending. Kinova’s Link 6 controller reportedly provides the highest processing power and memory capacity on the market, making it ready to use with the AI solutions of the future, while keeping the size of the controller compact. Achieving short cycle times through longer reach and fast movements, the Link 6 robotic arm is developed and designed with a variety of users in mind: an experienced industrial integrator and an operator with no particular robotic skills.

“Our operating market is mainly in the United States, where robotics innovation is well established,” explains Charles Deguire, CEO and founder of Kinova. “With the launch of Link 6, we also aim lend a hand to the Canadian market. Collaborative robots such as Link 6 are an interesting and increasingly sought-after alternative to overcome the labor shortage, here and elsewhere. Kinova is here to help out growing companies, and automation is far more accessible than most people think!”
