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.
The benefits of collaborative automation are undisputed – more profitability, productivity, flexibility, higher quality, and even more employee satisfaction. Given the current economic landscape, manufacturers need these advantages now more than ever. Cobots are a proven, valuable, and accessible solution for manufacturers.
Many of our customers have expressed a strong interest in using our cobots to automate process applications, such as dispensing, gluing, deburring, polishing, sewing, etc. You spoke, and we listened. We first added the Remote TCP (tool center point) feature in Polyscope 5.4, which enables our robots to move at a constant speed.
UR cobots make growth possible for companies of all sizes in several industries, from electronics and automotive to pharma and general manufacturing. Our cobots are easy to operate, offer flexible deployment possibilities, and are quick to install. In this article, we’ll take a look at five examples of solutions powered by UR cobots.
Accuracy, repeatability, and safety are critical aspects in the manufacture of many devices, especially those that have stringent quality requirements such as the medical, or transportation systems. These are also key features that distinguish UR cobots and make them ideal for testing these products for quality assurance.
Collaborative robot deployments often have high visibility throughout all levels of an organization, whether it’s manufacturing, packaging, or research. What is also highly visible is the process for conquering the learning curve and the ease with which the robot is back online if (when) hiccups happen. Easy programming and...
By now, the concept of collaborative robots that can easily, flexibly, and safely work side-by-side with human workers is well-understood among many manufacturers. But what about the cobots that are implemented in after-hours shifts to keep production humming even when employees aren’t working? When there are no humans nearby...
Once companies automate processes with robotics, they don’t look back. They quickly learn to depend on the consistent, reliable output, day after day, and year after year. But that means dependability is more important than ever. Companies simply can’t afford the downtime that will impact productivity and profitability.
It is no surprise anymore that robotic automation offers advantages for a wide range of applications, including injection molding. But what might be surprising is the incredible variety of reasons why injection molding manufacturers turn to robotics—and the additional benefits they achieve. Is your motivation in this list?
