Cobots requires proper inspection plans to maximize its lifespan. Equipment that are not implemented following the manufacturer best practices and following inspections plans from time to time depending on the application the robot is being used, can outcome in unplanned stops in the production and possibly damage to parts. A new strategy following the Inspection Plan inside Service Manual and following the best Practices from the documents we make available for you, it's a recipe for success and extended life of the equipment in your production line.
Inspection and follow-up methods can be created to insure a correct usage of the machine. It can vary from manual check-list of the check-up plan created, or have data collection to remind and check on the behavior of your robot (we partners that can provide remote and data collection options, consult your partner for more info).
