Ready Robotics will install its operating system in Kawasaki industrial robots

Ready Robotics, makers of Forge/OS, the industrial operating system for robots and automation, is partnering with Kawasaki Robotics to bring Ready’s Forge/OS software to Kawasaki robotics hardware.

Kawasaki is a leading supplier of industrial robots and automation technology, with payloads ranging from 3 to 1,500 kg. With over 50 years of experience and thousands of robots installed worldwide, Kawasaki is an automation partner you can trust.

Ready supports Kawasaki’s R-series robots, with capacities ranging from 3 kg to 80 kg. Support for more models will be added in future updates. Forge/OS adds another level of ease of use to Kawasaki robots with a simple to learn, program and manage user interface.

From large enterprises to small and medium-sized businesses, Ready and Kawasaki help companies increase production and reduce automation costs.

The combination of Forge/OS and Kawasaki robots helps simplify configuration, programming, and deployment of automation, alleviating common issues for end users.

Kawasaki, renowned for its accuracy and reliability, works with Ready to validate product integration. Customers can expect a seamless union between hardware and software.

Task Canvas, the flowchart-based programming interface of Forge/OS, enables companies to automate by providing a modern and intuitive programming interface to their employees. Task Canvas simplifies programming new SKUs, optimizing tasks, and recovering from failures.

Companies can also take advantage of tools like Ready.Academy, a free online training resource designed to teach the skills needed to design, deploy, manage and troubleshoot robotic automation.

Forge/OS extends the power of automation with apps. Familiar touchscreen interface allows apps to control automation. The Device Control app allows users to jog, jump and manipulate their robot.

Device Control also supports a wide range of automation devices. The Device Configuration app makes it easy to configure hundreds of different bots, devices, and devices in Forge/OS.

Forge/OS removes the barriers of automation while bringing another level of ease of use to Kawasaki’s industrial robots.

As Ready continues to expand the partnership with Kawasaki, customers can expect support for more robot models and tighter integration between products.
