Ti5 Robot (钛虎机器人), a Shanghai-based robot developer, has crossed a milestone as it recently decided to launch a cobot product on crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
Founded in 2020, the startup has been devoted to general robotics like cobot, exoskeleton, bionic robotic hand and core parts like lightweight joint module.
The company has been lying low at home and dedicated most of its resources and energies to R&D efforts and domestic market exploration. The proposed Kickstarter listing represented a key move into global markets.
Kickstarter has been a go-to destination for young Chinese tech ventures to sound out foreign users’ reaction to their innovations, finance production and help bring creative projects to life.
This time around, Ti5 Robot chose to start a Kickstarter campaign for its six-axis desktop cobot model Eblm-1, which is the latest addition to its cobot family and features a payload of 1kg.
The exact time for the launch is yet to be decided.
With a net weight of 2.3kg, the cobot is compact in size, boasts six degrees of freedom and has a position repeatability of 0.05mm.
Ti5 Robot claims that the agility of the contraption stands in sharp contrast to its lightweight design.
The cobot allows API developers to build on the platform and create applications based on software tools including robot operating system, Python and C++.
