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.
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.
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.

In our hyper-competitive world, every manufacturer would like to increase production and quality while improving efficiency. Automation can do all of these things.
