Since the introduction of robots on the GM line in the early 1960s, the world has seen a revolution in automated manufacturing. While the entire industrial robot sector has seen growth over that time, the most exciting and fastest growing segment belongs to collaborative robots (or ‘cobots’). Cobots are growing in popularity due to their flexibility, safety, small footprint, rapid ROI, low TCO and user-friendliness.
We hear the benefits automation brings to business but what about the employees who work hand-in-hand with these new technologies? Education, flexibility, safety, and improved work culture are just a few examples shared by members of the global workforce who work together with collaborative robots (cobots) on a daily basis.
