What is a cobot? In today's ever-evolving world of robotics, there are a growing number of innovative solutions that aim to improve collaboration between humans and machines. One of these solutions are cobots, collaborative robots that are used in various industries.
Companies are increasingly thinking about mobile cobot solutions. Especially with frequent product changes, small batch sizes and fast delivery times, cobots need to be flexible and effective. A mobile base makes this possible. However, the question remains as to which solutions are available and when such
Many companies had to reorganize during the coronavirus pandemic. Production had to be reorganized at short notice. Companies that previously produced spirits, for example, now produced disinfectants. This showed that companies that can react flexibly have an advantage. While the economy was stumbling, the orders
Welders are currently in high demand. However, there are hardly any qualified specialists left. Therefore, the available skilled workers must be deployed as effectively as possible in order to be able to handle all the orders. But that's not all. Cost pressure is also increasing in competitive markets. As far as possible
Perhaps this scenario sounds familiar to you: An employee complains of back pain. Until now, he has been palletizing goods at the end of a production line or in the warehouse. Shortly afterwards, he is off work because of his pain. But it gets worse. He resigns because another
Collaborative robots are increasingly being used in companies. Before cobot integration, however, many people are worried that cobots will take their jobs. A closer look reveals that automation with cobots enhances human work. Under certain circumstances, new jobs are even created.
Cobots are not just new types of industrial robots. They are collaborative robots. This means that they work as colleagues in your team. When we say colleagues, we really mean like colleagues. They work together with your employees and relieve them of strenuous tasks.
The use of traditional industrial robots is expensive and therefore only pays off for high production volumes and consistent applications. The high cost of conventional robots is mainly due to the cost of lengthy programming, set-up and safety requirements. The collaborative robots from Universal Robots
Cobots from Universal Robots are safe and collaborative We've all seen the pictures of large industrial robots doing their work surrounded by fences. They have such power and work with such speed that these industrial robots are extremely dangerous for humans. The situation is different with
Collaborating robots from Universal Robots can be used flexibly Small companies in particular often have a variety of tasks that need to be completed one after the other. There is often no application that can be carried out 24/7. A conventional robot would not be suitable for such an environment.
