Exoskeleton made of carbon fiber:
“With the 4th generation of our connected Cray X robotic exoskeleton, we are once again setting the standards for the entire exoskeleton industry worldwide. Regional cooperation, such as with technology leader SGL Carbon, which lent us significant support and expertise in the development of the new carbon fiber load-bearing structure, also underscores Germany’s position as a high-tech location for the future,” says Armin G. Schmidt, CEO of German Bionic. “Particularly system-relevant industries, such as logistics and freight, which have been under enormous pressure since the beginning of the pandemic, can now strengthen their employees backs with our new devices.”
Four Cray X USPs: Lighter, smarter, more powerful and flexibly financeable
Carbon fibre frame: Carbon fiber is widely known from its use for high-tech applications in the aerospace industry and Formula 1 racing. It is significantly stronger than steel yet is just a fraction of its weight. With the introduction of this cutting-edge material to the production process of the all-new Cray X – it is now not only much stronger, but also considerably lighter.
Industrial IoT as standard: The Cray X provides much more than just powerful lifting support. Automatic OTA software updates and predictive maintenance ensure maximum availability. By means of standard APIs the intelligent power suit can be easily connected to any Smart Factory ecosystem and thus helps to boost productivity as well as the health and safety.
More powerful: With its dual high-performance servo motors capable of offsetting weights of up to 28 kg, the new Cray X actively supports the lifting of heavy loads – for up to 8 hours with a single, quickly exchangeable standard battery pack.
Flexible pricing model: With adaptable pricing plans and service levels, the procurement of the new Cray X can be optimized according to the precise needs of companies, regardless of their size. The German Bionic Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) model provides a perfect solution for all types of requirements – from small businesses to large corporations – starting at as little as €699 per month.
New accessory: The smart Cray Visor combines augmented reality capabilities with protection against airborne health risks
Combined with the Cray X power suit, the all-new smart Cray Visor brings the benefits of industrial IoT and Smart Factory integration directly into the wearers line of view on the head-up display. The wireless connection between the Cray X, the German Bionic IO cloud-based IoT suite and the Cray Visor itself, allows instructions and other useful information to be displayed on the visor screen. What’s more, it also helps protect wearers from airborne health risks.
The new Cray X is available as of immediately. Full product details and information on the flexible pricing plans are available on the German Bionic company website: https://www.germanbionic.com/en/crayx-4/
About German Bionic
The smart Cray X power suit combines human intelligence with machine power by supporting or enhancing the wearer’s movements, thereby reducing the risk of workplace accidents and strain-related illnesses. German Bionic is the first European manufacturer to go into series production with these innovative robots that are worn directly on the body and is also the world’s first company to offer a Robotics as a Service (RaaS) solution for robotic exoskeletons.
In recognition of this innovative technology that is putting people back in the focus of Industry 4.0, the Cray X has received numerous awards, including both the Bavarian and German Entrepreneur Awards, the Land of Ideas Award, the Automatica Award, as well as a nomination for Hannover Messe’s renowned Hermes Award.
