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.
More factories and manufacturing facilities than ever before rely on robots to help assist and relieve human workers from tedious and dangerous tasks, ensure product quality and improve overall productivity. This article highlights some of the key trends driving the remarkable increase in adoption of cobots in industrial and manufacturing settings...
In this article we are going to explore five main advantages of collaborative robots: safety, flexibility, uniformity, productivity, and affordability. As you’ll see shortly, these are all key reasons why companies across the globe are relying more and more on automated manufacturing that leverages the power of cobots.
You may have encountered the terms 'robotics' and 'automation' being used interchangeably, but there are some important differences between the terms and what they mean. In this article we'll look at those differences and explore some of the ways in which collaborative robots have transformed the worlds of traditional robotics and manufacturing.
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.
