Katana – The Linux Robot



Katana is a product of Neuronics AG, an intelligent robotics company based in Zürich, Switzerland.

The Katana Robotic Arm comes with a powerful embedded controlboard running Linux with Xenomai Hard Real Time extensions and with a strong commitment to openness. This entails possibilities for many fields of application with requirements that could hitherto only be met by developing highly expensive custom engineered robotic systems.

A New Grade Of Openness

Our commitment is to provide a robotics system with no limitations as to its versatility and adaptability. By allowing full access to the embedded Linux controlboard and providing the respective APIs, the robot can be explored, extended and tailored to requirements that could otherwise never find a matching product on the market.
This is absolutely new and unique in industrial grade robotics.
