Aim Robotics and Kassow Robots have partnered on a dispensing solution for collaborative robot arms. With the deal from the Danish companies, Aim’s four dispensing solutions are now available as part of the Kassow Robots ecosystem.
Aim developed software and four patent-pending robotic dispensing units that are electronically controlled. The dispensing units are designed to integrate with cobot arms, and Aim claims the plug-and-play dispensers help manufacturers achieve higher repeatability and quality control in production, reducing costs by eliminating waste, rework, and maintenance on compressors.

“This electronically-based robotic dispenser by Aim Robotics offers great advantages to our customers,” said Dieter Pletscher, Sales Manager, Kassow Robots. “High repeatability and quality control help companies automate their dispensing application very efficiently and effectively.”
“For us, Kassow Robots is the perfect fit, as its 7-axis cobots make the automation of dispensing tasks significantly easier due to the 7th axis and the high reach up to 1800 millimeters,” said Aim Robotics co-founder Mie Haraldsted.
Aim created an air-less robotic cartridge dispenser, followed by the SD 20/55 – a 30cc and 55cc syringe dispenser that uses a linear motion system to dispense fluids precisely, and FD HighV – an external fed, high volume dispenser. The latest addition to the FD Series robotic fluid dispensers is the FD310, which uses compressed air to feed the dosing pump without affecting the dosing quality.
“We keep listening to the users’ needs and provide them with the best solutions that are currently available on the market, while continuously thinking about new ways and options to make their daily lives easier with automated dispensing,” added Haraldsted. “With Kassow more dispensing tasks are simpler thanks to the 7th axis and reach.”
Kassow Robots was founded by former Universal Robots co-founder Kristian Kassow. Its first public appearance took place at Automatica 2018 in Germany. Kassow has five 7-axis cobot arms in its lineup, including the KR1018 that was introduced in September 2020. You can see a quick comparison of the company’s cobot arms below.
