Kasita gets okay to sell its Modular Homes in California, Nevada

Builder Online:  Kasita, a 2017 AIA Design Award winning manufacturer of modular homes based in Austin, said Friday it has received approvals to manufacture and sell its high-design, technology-integrated prefabricated modular homes in two new states.

Kasita has been approved under the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the Nevada Manufactured Housing Division to build and sell its ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) in California and Nevada. Sales in both states will begin in early November.

"This is a very important milestone for Kasita," says Martyn Hoffmann, Kasita's CEO, "State level certifications and approvals are a critical step as we roll-out both our ADU and density products in markets across the country. Manufactured spaces are held to a much higher standard than traditional stick-built construction, therefore every time we meet these standards it takes a burden off of our customers as they go through their own permitting process locally. What's great to see is each time we go through the approval process the team gets more and more efficient. As cycle-times shorten, we are already seeing multiple additional state approvals move rapidly toward completion."

Every Kasita is move-in ready and comes fully equipped with appliances and furniture, and features a fully integrated home automation system. The home automation system enables seamless control through voice and a mobile app, to provide the homeowner control over the entire living environment including lights, climate and sound.  Full Article:

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
