The absence of skilled workers has been looming over European manufacturers for years. In 2019, three out of four European companies reported that they had trouble finding the right workers. With no improvement in sight, decision makers and companies must collectively care for the workforce, as people are the economy’s most important resource.
Cobots are designed to work alongside humans, and for that reason they are much smaller and lighter than typical traditional robots. As a result, our cobots use less electricity than traditional industrial robots, which usually use three phase power.
There are lots of different ways to use a cobot for palletizing in your business. And one of the simplest ways to customize your palletizing is to choose a gripper that is designed for a specific function.
Implementing a robotic palletizing solution using a collaborative robot (cobot) can not only help your production operations run as smoothly as possible, but also help increase speed, output and reduce costs.
Collaborative robots (cobots) are a cost-effective way to increase production and delivery time, optimize your processes and boost quality. But even though a cobot is much simpler and faster to set up and get working than a traditional industrial robot, there is still some preparation that needs to be done.
A collaborative robot (cobot) can be utilized in hundreds of ways. Whether you’re looking to automate a tedious task, increase efficiency or free your workers up to complete more technical work, cobots will be a transformative addition to your operations. Here we explain in more detail 10 cobot components and how they can be used within your business.
You may be wondering ‘what is palletization’, ‘what does a palletizer do’, or ‘how to palletize’. Perhaps you’re also curious about how collaborative robots, or cobots, can help with this essential function. We’ve put together a straightforward guide to palletizing robots and how they can take a dull, potentially dangerous task off your people’s to-do lists.
As factory automation becomes accessible to even the smallest businesses, cobot (collaborative robot) palletizing is one of the first areas business owners are looking to explore. Of the many robot applications, palletizing is a popular choice to drive workplace efficiency, reduce costs and keep human workers safe. Here are just five of the ways cobot palletizing can help your business reach its key objectives.
Cobot palletizers are making industrial packaging and palletizing operations simpler, faster, and more efficient. As well as doing the heavy lifting, they can also perform a range of tasks that require accuracy, speed, and relatively complex movements too. We find that while a lot of companies know that automation can help them be more competitive, there is still a lack of awareness about the many ways a cobot can add value to their operations.
Collaborative robots, or cobots, have the power to transform a business’s capabilities, productivity and overheads. More affordable, versatile and compact than traditional industrial robots, they allow even small operations to leverage the power of automation and take their productivity and profitability to the next level. Here is a brief history of the cobot, and how they are transforming manual work for companies across the globe.
