Ford Motor Company, one of the global automotive industry giants, has one of its major production sites in Europe located in Craiova, Romania. UR10 cobots are now deployed on the engine assembly line where they grease camshafts, fill engines with oil and perform quality inspections. The cobots help Ford deliver a faster production throughput while also relieving employees of repetitive tasks.
