Humans and robots together produce better results than robots or humans working alone. This is also supported by an MIT study conducted in 2014 which examined the impact of human-robot collaboration and revealed an 85% reduction in worker’s idle time when they worked alongside collaborative robots.
Navneet Kejriwal - Head of Manufacturing Operations, India for Dell - speaks about Dell’s cobot journey
Empowering People has always been the core of everything we do here at Universal Robots. With over 46,000 cobots deployed across the world so far, thousands of people across the world have benefit from the values of Human Robot Collaboration – a key Industry 4.0 driver. In our very first Cobot Clients blog post, we share the perspective of Mr. Navneet Kejriwal, Head of Manufacturing Operations for Dell India, who spoke of his experience with collaborative robots in a webinar hosted by Manufacturing Today. Starting off with a single cobot in 2017, the Dell plant now has four cobots in various tasks across their assembly line.
Cobots are emerging as a tremendous force for good in the global battle against COVID-19. In this, the first of an ongoing series highlighting some of the ways in which UR cobots have contributed to the global response to the pandemic, we take a look at disinfection and test kit solutions along with some less easily categorized (but just as exciting) solutions made possible by Universal Robots
In our very first blog, we learned how the term 'robot' came into existence. Humankind was introduced to the term way back in 1920, as part of a play named Rossum's Universal Robots. In the play, a robot was depicted as a human-looking or a humanoid machine.
The dawn of this year marks an entire century since the term 'Robot' was coined. Closer to home, it also marks an entire decade since the very first cobot from Universal Robots was deployed in South Asia. To mark these two very special milestones, we decided to start our very own local blog.
