Cooper Gray Robotics Introduces The Alternative to Diesel

The 1st Line Of Remote Controlled, Electric Powered Construction Equipment

--November 2nd, 2015, Oakland, CA--Cooper Gray Robotics LLC, an Oakland, California based company, (www.robotloader.com) is please to announce the introduction of ROEBL (remote operated, electric bucket loader, aka bobcat, aka skid steer), the lead offering in the first line of remote controlled, electric powered construction equipment.


As the world confronts the increasingly dramatic consequences of global warming, alternative fueled vehicles take on added importance. Now there is a sustainable alternative to diesel as we are learning "clean diesel" is essentially a misnomer. CGR addresses this concern directly by creating equipment that sacrifices nothing in terms or performance--ROEBL can do everything a diesel-powered skid steer can do and more—while completely eliminating tail pipe emissions.

CGR's skid steer solves two of the industry's major problems. For years manufacturers have focused on driver safety. CGR reduces operator risk to zero by taking the driver off the vehicle. And our electric drive train solves another industry wide problem—how to operate in close quarters where pollution can be dangerous—doing away with the tail pipe allows CGR's skid steer to function nearly anywhere.

According to co-inventor and CTO Justin Gray, "The proprietary controller that is at the heart of the CGR product line scales up to work with larger construction equipment that will be battery powered in the near future. This is the direction of the industry and we are proud to be leading the next wave."

CGR launched a fundraising campaign on Fundable.com today, November 2nd. www.fundable.com/cooper-gray-robotics

CGR sees a bright future for its skid steers on farms, construction sites, and hazardous environments across America and beyond. Finally there is something new in construction equipment: Cooper Gray Robotics has it.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
